Point of View

@ VOL 2
ON FEB 27, 2011
Samer shares his thoughts on how you can perceive things differently after you change your angle or you change your position. The whole picture changes, and it affects your understanding and perception. The presentation is about the importance of taking different points of view on things that we take for granted.

Poster for PKN Aleppo Vol. 1
Another first PechaKucha Night to announce, this time in the Syrian city of Aleppo. The Vol. 1 is happening December 12 at Art River, with the very PK-friendly start time of 20:20. And here a few words from the organizers (from the official event page) that we think set the tone quite nicely: Today, we are sharing a new idea in our city, a new type of event, which is about pitching innovative and creative ideas to our fellow citizens in a more open and social way.

Harout will also be accepting donations at the event.

Following our post with photos from PechaKucha Night in Aleppo Vol. 2, here's a look at the poster that was produced for the event.

We'll also soon be sharing some photos from PKN Aleppo Vol. 3.

Poster for PKN Aleppo Vol. 5
Aleppo will have its PechaKucha Night Vol. 5 on March 11 -- a special date for us here in Japan as it marks the anniversary of last year's earthquake and tsunami, which led to our Inspire Japan efforts. The event will be held at Nadwet Al-Shahba, and you'll find more details here.
PKN Aleppo Vol. 5
PechaKucha Night in Aleppo Vol. 5, held in early March, was a huge success, and as organizer Harout Ekmanian tells us, "we had ten wonderful presentations and there were nearly 400 people at the event, besides the Mayor of Aleppo, Mr Ayman Hallak, and city council members." We include in this post a few photos from the event, to give you a taste of what the night was like. You'll also find the full list of presenters on the event page.
Your Guide to Role-Playing, Rebuilding in Tohoku, and a Photo Gallery Explosion
Presentations A Bangor native with a passion for weird and creative things, Chris Pierce has been a star "Dungeon Master" -- the person who directs a session of a role-playing game -- at the annual SnowCon Gaming Convention in Orono for the past 4 years. His enthusiasm and love of tabletop gaming is addictive -- and shines through in this presentation from PKN Bangor, ME Vol. 4 -- and he’s been known to convince many a "noob" to sit in on a game of Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow. In this presentation (in Japanese, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92), architects Daisuke Sugawara and Masayuki Harada describe a reconstruction project they've been working on, to help rebuild in the Tohoku region. As you'll see, they've been trying to rebuild villages, to keep the community together. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, one for next month's PKN St. Louis Vol. 9 (pictured above) and one for the upcoming PKN Moscow Vol. 19 (it's not listed on the official site yet, but it should be added soon). Photos For the past couple of days we've been sharing coverage of specific events, and so today we catch up on quite a few photosets that we've been adding to our Flickr account.
