From being recruited to a nationally ranked Division 1 collegiate soccer program to becoming a internationally recognized emerging choreographer. Dominic Moore-Dunson explores the idea of failure and how we can use it to shape our future.
During the presentation, Greg explain that year through the lens of a seven-year old (his age at the time) and how he came to understand the world in much more complicated terms, rather than black and white, good and bad, right and wrong. Many events that shaped Greg into the person he is today occurred during this year, including Darth Vader's defeat of the rebels, the constant appearing of the Ayatollah Khomeini on my television, JR Ewing's getting shot by someone, the death of John Lennon, and the death of my uncle, which his father was later found to be responsible for.

David Giffels grew up fascinated by his father’s dusty, tool-strewn workshop and the countless creations it inspired. So when he enlisted his eighty-one-year-old dad to help him build his own casket, he thought of it mostly as an opportunity to spend time together. But the unexpected deaths of his mother and, a year later, his best friend, coupled with the dawning realization that his father wouldn’t be around forever for such offbeat adventures—and neither would he—led to a harsh confrontation with mortality and loss.

#3 in the SKY
This was good! And it all started with a magnificent concerto of the delicious trio: Limona Jam: Ammalia Podlaszewska + Daniele Agretti + Alex Osipenko. Taste it in a short glimpse! This was an allover dream come true evening! We had local musicians performing together for the first time, we landed on a spectacular venue on a roof top of our city, we reached the magic 10 presentations and our audience keeps on growing! Right after the sunset, we had Rubén Robledo Ibáñez showing us his reportage photos from the Gaza Stripe where he spent several weeks among befriended Palestinians. Geographically not afar, the next was Athina Stefani from Greece who involved us in her story about Ludwig Wittgenstein's house, told by the mean her own drawings authored throughout the nights before Friday: And then it happened: the Italian-Swedish team of laughter monsters (Sara Ferraioli + Carl Ydergård) stretched our cheeks to a high level of pain with their rythmic story on how Daniele, who happened to be the guitarrist at the same evening, made his career instead of playing football. A series of 20 photomontages made us laugh through the whole 400 seconds: This was not all! Sara couldn't stop just at one presentation.. An involving walk through the streets of Naples followed, filled with street art: After a smooth beer brake extended through the stunning views over Weimar: we took off again. This time Rika Tarigan from Indonesia engaged us with her designs of modern applications of the batik textile technique. Filtered through the cultural background of Indonesian fariy tales we were covered up with 20 splendid and very colorful images: Right after some colder recollections of the last winter arrived to us from Sankt Petersburg through Lithuania in the person of the delightful pianist Simona Zajancauskaite. The first musician to present images on PKN in Weimar! Stark congratulations for the courage! We were all touched by the transcontinental message instilled in the 20 slides under the title tandem, nothing is black and white anymore. The message pointing towards a possible European-Russian friendship was carried on by the presentation by Iman Hegazy (Egipt) and Tatiana Reshetnikova - the Urban Sketchers Weimar. In a series of speedy sketches we discovered some beautiful locations from Russia, Egypt and Weimar. Thank you and good luck with engaging more sketchers in your group! The reportages from cold Russia made a perfect ground for the next story to come - this time by the PKN city-organizer himself. Gall Podlaszewski uncovered his winterly "cultural production": the Weimar Winter Bad - a series of Monday baths in the river of Ilm taking place under winter atmospheric conditions. The involvement of some other participants proved that the idea of swimming in the winter is not Bad at all! Here, the end of first season (photo by Simona Zajancauskaite who got up on a cold morning very early just to take this photo. What a brave daughter!): Right afterwards we had another swap of functions - now Tereza Spindlerova - the second city-organizer came out of her mixxer pult and took over the mic to tell us the development of her Spanish blog - a poetic journey supported by 20 almost abstract urban images: The splendid series of 10 presentations was closed, or rather opened up by the enigmatic Mr. Grüter, who did it just as we like - decided to present just at the same evening, bringing his presentation on a usb stick. Here Mr. Grüter seizes the audience with his magic pencil: Thank you all for the great fun we had that night!!

Do you hear that? For those that can hear, it is a constant and involuntary act. Listening, on the other hand, is a choice and takes effort. We, as humans, are listening less and less to the environments in which we live. Is this because we create sonically distasteful cities that aren’t worth listening to? Or is it our waning interest in listening to blame for inadequate urban soundscape planning? Mitch Allen will explore the answers to these questions at Pecha Kucha Night Ubud 20x20x20 on August 26th. Mitch is the founder of OneTwoStudios, with over 10 years experience in music composition and 8 years in acoustics. In both fields he has been engaged by big profile clients to work on landmark projects, and commissioned for various soundscape installations. His passion lies in sound design in the context of urban environments.

The Secrets of Body Language
Body language is more powerful than you may think. Everybody communicates through body language and sends out signals that communicate much more about you, your true intentions and what is on your mind than what you are aware of. At PechaKucha Night Ubud #20, Sandhi Spears will share why he thinks that by being conscious about other people’s non-verbal signals, you are not only improving your communication skills, but also understanding yourself better.

As a coach and trainer, Sandhi has been working with a wide variety of individuals and groups who have come to a personal or professional turning point. S

5 reasons why Pecha Kucha is **THE** night out in Coventry this Friday...
Yes, it's Pecha Kucha night at the Tin Music & Arts centre from 7pm this Friday, here's 5 reasons why this night of merry amusement just might be for you... 1) If you like TED talks, stand up comedy or open mic nights - Pecha Kucha is sort of like all three rolled into one. At each night there's a massive mix of zany, opinionated, inspirational and downright oddball people talking (or perhaps shouting, dancing, miming or singing) through a series of 20 images. You don't have to worry about stifling any yawns, each person is only allowed 20 seconds per image... before you know it you've had six and a half minutes of eclectic entertainment... and after 3 or 4 you realise the £3 entry is definitely giving your two bob's worth. 2) TFI Friday and alcohol is served. The Tin offer loads of continental drinks and local brews including Coventry's very own Byatt's beer. 3) Fighting winter flu? You can watch Pecha Kucha from your sickbed - All the Pecha Kucha presentations are put online at www.pechakucha.org/cities/coventry. Seriously laugh-out-loud recommendations from the Pecha Kucha Coventry 'Christmas' edition are: How to Annoy Your Friends on Facebook at Christmas by Simon Fairbanks and Placing Children on Your Lap: the Art of Ventriloquism by Michael Mayhew. You can also follow antics via Twitter live on the night @PKN_coventry. 4) Try it and like it? You can go to a Pecha Kucha night ANYWHERE in the world. Originally starting in Tokyo (the tongue twisting "Pecha Kucha" title means "chit chat"), nights now take place in over 700 cities worldwide. So next time you're surfing the Air B&B waves to Dubai, Budapest, San Francisco or Paris you can also take in a Pecha Kucha night*. 5) If you get the itch after seeing (and possibly secretly mocking) others, you can have a go too. Anyone is welcome to sign up to 'do' a Pecha Kucha night on any subject, in any style, with any images and props you might care to use. Once you've completed this curious right-of-passage, you realise there's no return; it's addictive, it's fun and it's a serious preference to sitting in and worrying about your post-January diet. See you on Friday! *disclaimer - not all nights may be as good as Pecha Kucha Coventry. Please also note that you could be educated or inspired and that there's a serious risk of meeting people... PECHA KUCHA COVENTRY Friday 20th February 7pm-11pm 'Design your City' - a theme for Global Pecha Kucha Night @ The Tin Music & Arts (formerly Taylor John's House), Leicester Row, Coventry, West Midlands, CV14BN Presenters, event details, maps here.
So you've been chosen to present? Here's what you need to know.
SO YOU’VE BEEN CHOSEN TO PRESENT You’ve gotten over the hard part of whether to take on the challenge to get up there in front of a large audience. Congratulations! Now here’s what you need to know. Invite your friends. Remember to invite your friends and family to attend! Visit our Facebook Page. You're on the List. Each of you will have received an invitation to create or update your speaker profile on the global Pecha Kucha website. Once you update your profile (or even if you don't), it'll be listed in the PechaKucha.org cities. Follow the Pecha Kucha Format. In the spirit of following the global Pecha Kucha format, we ask that you show a total of 20 slides (images - minimal text if any) and speak about each slide for 20 seconds during your presentation. This gives you a total of six minutes and 40 seconds to present. No sales pitches. Our audiences can smell a sales pitch a mile away. Please, no overt selling. Create your presentation in PowerPoint. We prefer that you submit your presentation already in PowerPoint. If you don’t have PowerPoint let us know and we’ll work with you. You don’t need to include a title slide. Use your 20 slides for content and images; we’ll handle your introduction so you can focus on your story. Our emcee will introduce you by reading your bio, and our designers will create a transition slide with your name, organization, and topic listed. Tips for your PowerPoint Use the standard Page Setup (Slides sized for On-screen Show (4:3), Width: 10 Inches, Height: 7.5 Inches) Save images at 72 dpi to reduce the file size. In the “View” menu select “Slide Sorter” Hit Ctrl+a to select all slides. Select “Transitions” Uncheck “On Mouse Click” Check “After” and change the timing to 00:20.00 View your slideshow to test your presentation. Roadblocks happen. So you thought you wanted to present about your business, company or your product but learned that it’s not a sales pitch. You start doubting yourself and how you’re going to talk. Don’t let yourself choke and default to what is comfortable. Pecha Kucha is all about sharing your story, your passion, an idea, YOU. If you need guidance, our volunteer organizers are here to support you. Watch some presentations and get inspired. It isn’t about a company. It is about the person driving it. We want to hear all about YOU. For you aspiring presenters, apply to present by clicking on the link https://www.pechakucha.org/cities/columbus/contact/new.

The Magic of PechaKucha
Imagine not leaving your street for a whole year. 365 days living within the boundary of just one ordinary road, in an ordinary part of the city. In a project named Jaffa Jaffa, experimental Dutch film-maker Marnix Haak did exactly that, not stepping foot outside Javastraat in Amsterdam East from 1 September 2016 to 1 September 2017. For 365 days Marnix existed purely within his immediate community, getting to know every inch of his street and the people who lived there. The artist wanted to know why it was that his friends were keen to travel the world and meet new people rather than engaging with those right there on the doorstep. Is there really more to be learnt from the far than from the near? Or are most of us just blind to our communities, living alongside one another distanced by imagined difference? In PechaKucha you are allowed just 20 slides, with a 20 second time limit per slide in which to share your story. We see photos of Marnix dressed up with grinning bin men, Marnix riding on segways with the local kids, Marnix at a Ramadan feast, Marnix learning how to carve a kebab and moving footage of Marnix saying goodbye to a terminally-ill neighbor who became a close friend. This was just one of the twelve Pecha Kucha presentations at Amsterdam’s De School last night. We also heard from a chef who’s founded a supper club for isolated pensioners, a journalist who collected his own waste plastic for 1000 days, a carpenter turning old fridges into beautiful furniture, a cartographer questioning who owns the Arctic, and an illustrator who lived in the Hortus Botanicus for a week sketching plants at night. Each had just six minutes and 40 seconds in the limelight. The boundaries, for Marnix Haak and for PechaKucha are very rigid. And yet, these tight parameters are enough to prove just how many extraordinary, ordinary people there are in this community. You don't need to travel far, you don't need money or power to make a contribution. Sometimes you just need a mad idea.
