BY CLAIRE & CARLY WEINBERG
@ VOL 19
ON NOV 15, 2013
Claire and Carly Weinberg, sisters and founders of Dulse & Rugosa, share their story of how they transformed the island they grew up on into a natural skin care business based on the botanicals grown on the island. Like most businesses, theirs was hard to start and they faced particular challenges with living on a remote island. The risk was worth taking since it meant they could recreate the unique island community.

BY JEFF MCHUGH
@ VOL 6
ON JUN 05, 2014
Jeff McHugh shares a brief history of the construction of the railway incline, one of the first electrical incline railways and to utilize hydroelectric dams in America. However, due to the Great Depression and fire damage, the railway shut down. Recently, the four destinations of Beacon were able to be reconnected in a sustainable way- with low emission buses, paving the way for a local economy to emerge once more. Jeff shares a plan for a LEED certified summit station on top of Mt. Beacon to allow access for enjoying the beauty of the numerous trails Beacon has to offer.

A Brief Memoir of Architectural Space
BY JOANNA GILLESPIE
@ VOL 17
ON SEP 15, 2016
"This is my 6-minute memoir. A mediation on impermanence."
In A Brief Memoir of Architecural Space from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, independent arts consultant and co-organizer of PechaKucha Buffalo, Joanna Gillespie, delivers a meditation on twenty of the fifty places she has lived since birth. From Victorian-era structures in Buffalo, NY and San Francisco, CA, to the wilds of the 1970's California coast, to modern and efficient rural Japan, to a Postmodern art utopia in Maine, and beyond, Gillespie recounts a particular memory from each space. Through all of the temporal landscapes we find ourselves in, Gillespie concludes, "We forge on, either clumsily or assuredly. We keep on keeping on." Even if we move fifty times.
SITEWIDE BLOG POSTS
It wasn't that long ago that we were celebrating having hit over 400 cities in the global PechaKucha city count -- it was back in April -- and here we are now at 426, with still more to add and register. At this rate, we may very well hit 500 by the end of the year. Here then is a list of the latest cities to join our big happy family: Fort Worth, Salt Spring Island, Blue Hill, Wakefield, Phillip Island, and New Plymouth.
PKN Salt Spring Island Vol. 1
The second PechaKucha Night in Salt Spring Island is set for next week (August 27) -- see the list of presenters on the official event page -- but here's a look at the first event, held in early June at The Barn (an appropriate name, we think).
PKN Phillip Island Vol. 2
Who says a PechaKucha Night can't be held in a chapel? In this post we share a few photos from last month's PechaKucha Night in Phillip Island Vol. 2, held at the Trenavin Chapel -- you'll find the full list of presenters on the event page. And as you'll see in the photos, the venue certainly didn't affect our PK tradition of "thinking and drinking." Please note that PKN Phillip Island Vol. 3 is set for February 19.
The Town that Jell-O Built
Who doesn't love Jell-O? The little dessert that could has a fascinating history, and you'll be guided through it in this presentation ("The Town that Jell-O Built") by Dede Taylor, whose family has links to the gelatine treat. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Bozeman Vol. 2.
3/11 and ArchiAid
Today marks the anniversary of 3/11 -- the earthquake/tsunami disaster that affected the northern regions of Japan in 2011 -- and so we will be featuring presentations all week that relate to the topic. We will also release an updated version of our Inspire Japan ebook later this week, with new presentations (you can download it for free from the iBookstore).We kick things off with this reconstruction project by SANAA on the island of Miyato, with the goal of maintaining the traditional lifestyle of the locals, and to preserve the sights and island nature (as with most of the presentations on the ArchiAid Channel, it is in Japanese, but with English subtitles). It was part of a special "PechaKucha x ArchiAid" event, and you can still offer support by donating through the button you'll find on the presentation page -- money raised goes to the "Core House" project.

Crossing the Atacama Dessert
Salt flats, solar radiation, minefields, and extreme temperatures -- this is the Atacama. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Crossing the Atacama Desert" from Kuwait City Vol. 9, Faisal Al-Nakib details his experience taking place in the brutal Atacama Crossing desert foot race in Chile. He describes the severe trials, tribulations, as well as how the challenge helped him grow and learn more about himself while on this one week, 250 km (155 mile) journey.
Little Island Management
In today's Presentation of the Day, "Little Island Management" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 67, Mari Kojima haphazardly, yet hilariously, speaks in a stream-of-consciousness fashion on her photography, her past, and her artistic themes. She elaborates on the idea that the photographer learns about his/her desires through the act of viewing and shooting the world with their instrument.
Conquering Mt. Fuji
Mt. Fuji casts its shadow over Japan — it has inspired generations to take up the challenge of climbing it. Will you accept? PechaKucha's own Johnny Linnert tells his story of climbing Japan's tallest mountain/active volcano: Fuji-san. In “Conquering Mt. Fuji” from PKN Tokyo Vol. 117 he shows us that, from his experience of climbing up with the mountain with his friends, there is much excitement and trials to endure while on such an adventure.
Island Time Machine
“The goal is to try and make commentary on sociopolitical issues– things I see happening in the news.” In Island Time Machine from PechaKucha Night Honolulu’s 24th Volume, Presenter Culture Shocka gives an eye-catching display of his portfolio. It doesn’t take long to spot the cultural influences in his vibrant work. In an attempt to reduce what could be lost in translation from his mind to yours, he uses a Modern and Minimalist-inspired approach, mixing equal parts Cartooning and Graphic Design.
