Wild About Art, Performance Art for Bookstore Awareness, and Photos from Toronto
Presentations Selena Seifert is a practicing artist as well as being a trained arts educationalist. As we find out in her presentation (from PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 2), she is currently the director of Wild Valley Art Park, based in Blue Mountains. Jian Guo Xiong Di is an independent curator, and in his presentation (in Chinese, from PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11) he covers the well-received “30 days of bookstore closings” project he produced last year. Why 30 days? Jian Guo explains that he would like to use this art performance to let people realize that these days so many bookstores are disappearing. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is our flyer for tomorrow night's PKN Tokyo Vol. 95 -- it was designed by Luis Mendo, from a photo by Michael Holmes. You'll find the list of presenters on the official event page. Photos Today we share a photo gallery [Flickr] for Toronto's recent Vol. 17, and the PK site will soon be hosting plenty of presentations from that evening.

Crowd Goes Wild
Our good friends at Chicago-based Table XI -- the amazing talent behind the site your are currently visiting -- have some nice things to say about PK, which makes us very happy. Congratulations to our friends and partners at PechaKucha, who are celebrating their 10th anniversary today! As the development team who launched their new site, we’re very proud to be part of this global movement. The founders of PechaKucha—Japanese for “chitchat”—revolutionized the PowerPoint presentation a decade ago, creating a new format in which speakers are limited to 20 slides or images that auto-advance every 20 seconds. Though it started as an informal gathering of architects in Tokyo, the concept quickly expanded: Now 600 cities around the world host their own “PechaKucha Nights” featuring talks from designers, engineers, artists, photographers, chefs, writers, and more. Read more about Table XI's work on the PK site in this case study.
Give Sharks a Chance
National Geographic diver Mark Addison has been swimming with sharks for nearly 20 years now, and runs a consulting company that assists in underwater science operations, filming, and photography. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Durban, Vol. 8), Mark insists that "no shark is a bad shark." He's out to change the conceptions of fear and misunderstanding surrounding these apex predators (the same classification that Humans belong to), and he's hoping his daughter, Ella -- along with her generation -- can work to minimize human impact on these animals. You can see a bit more of Mark and his crew on the National Geographic TV show "Shark Attack Experiment".
The Fear of Sharks
We all have our fears; some rational, some not so rational. In today's Presentation of the Day, "The Fear of Sharks" from PKN Louisville Vol. 3, in a rather comedic manner Paul Sirek confesses his irrational fear of being attacked by sharks ... while in the swimming pool. Paul goes beyond Spielberg's Jaws, reveals the true nature of sharks, and confronts his fear in the ocean.
Feeding the Achieve
How far would you push yourself to realize your dreams? Samantha Nienow and Rebecca Layman feed their inner desires to achieve as they train for the Half Ironman, a gruelling marathon that combines swimming, biking, and running.

Harnessing Wild Horses
“My mom raised me and I quickly because an independent little person with a lot of personality.” In Harnessing Wild Horses from PechaKucha Night New Orleans Volume 18 Musa Alves is a DJ, photographer, international fun haver, cheeseburger enthusiast, Brazilian redneck. In this presentation Musa goes chronologically through her life because reckless youth has been a constant theme. She is the product of a Mississippi Delta Debutant and a Brazilian bassist. In her life, she has fallen off the horse a few times, but has always managed to get back up. Whether reckless youth has led to ambition or ambition has led reckless youth, Musa has always carved her own path by harnessing the wild horses that drives you to do the things that scare you, and challenge you, and make you vulnerable.
Ignite Wild Idea about Research
When we are bogged down in our daily work of taking or teaching classes, in the weeds of doing research, writing, marking, sitting in meetings, reading emails….it is easy to lose sight about what excites us about learning and discovery. Do you have budding ideas for research, projects you would love to do, new, perhaps even wild, ideas you would like to ignite—suspending concerns of time and resources? As students and faculty together here at Acadia University, how often do we get a chance, or take the time, to tell other people about the things we are passionate about? We are carving out some time to do just that on campus February 15 at the Axe Lounge (6-7:30). Be a Pecha Kucha storyteller, and share your Wild Ideas About Research with your Acadia community, or just come out and listen, celebrate passion for learning, have some pizza brought to you by Research and Graduate Studies, and if you want, toast a beer. Interested in presenting or need more information about Pecha Kuckas as a storytelling format? Tips for presenting? The PK team is here to help. Contact Lesley at Lesley.email@example.com or Kent at firstname.lastname@example.org
Presenter Bio: Andrea
If Andrea was an animal she would be a seal pup, swimming in the cool waters of the Atlantic, not too far from her home in Norway. She lives and works in Malawi and uses organizational tools to kid herself into believing she's got it all figured out. Andrea loves books and fonts and wishes that everyday was her birthday. We're excited to hear what Andrea has to say about "New Beginnings" on Wednesday!
