Shae Janiga

You may remember that it wasn't so long ago that Tokyo featured a presentation by an 11-year-old -- Kaden Cowan, whose presentation you can actually watch online -- and now it's Providence's turn to feature a very young presenter, Shae Janiga. Here's a report from organizer Stephanie Gerson. She was fabulous: her name is Shae Janiga and she's a 6th grader at Wyman School in Providence. She plays the piano, violin, and soccer, and Loves horseback riding. She also speaks fluent Slovak and Loves to travel. But most importantly, according to her, Shae is a great big sister to her 3 siblings. Her presentation was called "Global Soccer for All." She started by talking about how soccer has enriched her own life, e.g. by giving her the opportunity to make new friends, travel, and gain more self-confidence. Then she zoomed out to what soccer can do for countries, e.g. enabling the people of countries that have geopolitically tense relations to get along, and respect each other, on the field. (May I remind you she is 11!) But, there's one major problem. (And yes, she made us wait a whole 20 seconds on that 'problem' slide.) The problem being: that girls all over the world don't play soccer. In fact, in many countries, especially countries where women have fewer rights than men, women are actively discouraged from soccer. So how to solve this problem? Well, what she plans to do is live next year with her cousins in Slovakia, and start a girls soccer team there! (The entire audience erupts in cheer.) It was moving, thoughtful, self-aware, and well-delivered. And of course afterward, I got a slew of parents asking me if their kids could present, and we have a 10-year-old lined up for February.    You can see more photos from PKN Providence Vol. 10 in this Flickr photoset.

The Grand Flat Piano

Some great news for the duo of Olle Bjekas and Jon Wingborg -- their project entitled "The Grand Flat Piano," which was presented at PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg Vol. 18, will be one of this year's "Honorarium Art Installations" at the Burning Man festival. As PKN Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson tells us, "every year Burning Man allocates a percentage of its revenue from ticket sales to funding select art projects that are collaborative, community-oriented and interactive." Here's a description of the project, taken from the official Burning Man announcement. The Grand Flat Piano is a 20 meter long flat piano. It has 45 keys in 9 octaves C#. The keys are connected to several synthesizers. The Grand Flat Piano is played by burners so just come out at the playa and play on the largest piano you have ever seen. If you want a whole jam session just bring your own instruments and jam along the piano.

PKN Gothenburg's Piano Break

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj3d9_EeFPk At its latest PechaKucha Night -- Vol. 28, held a few days ago -- Gothenburg invited pianist Bruno Bran to play at the event during the breaks, instead of a DJ. As organizer Jesper Larsson says, "I must say it was great for the atmosphere and perhaps something to spread and recommend to other PKN organizers." The video gives you a taste of Bran's playing, and we love seeing the reflection of our PechaKucha city loop on the piano.

PKN Bucharest Vol. 8

Bucharest took part in the Global Cities Week with its PechaKucha Night Vol. 8, and here we post a few photos from the event -- with more to see in this Facebook gallery -- as well as a report from organizer Irina Ionica. You'll also find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. Bucharest had its Cities Week PechaKucha Night #8 on the 23rd of February, in a great location provided by The National Music University. The "George Enescu" concert hall appears to be probably the best location we have had for PechaKucha Bucharest, although every and each location seemed to be perfect for the specific moment. This edition offered a few surprises: 1. Two piano pieces were played at the beginning of the show by Andreea Butnaru, from the “Musica Viva” trio and The National Music University. 2. Kolding, a Danish city that organized PechaKucha Night almost at the same time, made a presentation for us at the beginning of their show, and we made a presentation for them, at the end of ours. We used Skype for that, and the sound was perfect, while presenter’s image and the presentation film ran in parallel on a different screen. So we were together that night, once more. 3. At the end of the show we had an unexpected presentation on 20 images about Kolding, completely unknown by the 4 volunteers chosen from public. We had a lot of fun together. A wonderful night! If only it had lasted longer!

In "Performing, Creating and Collaborating" from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol.18, Christopher Allery has had a 20 year creative career that has focused on the art of collaboration.
