Le Huit-Sept : galerie-shop-event
BY AGATHE DACOURY
@ VOL 10
ON FEB 19, 2015
Le Huit-Sept (rue Jeanty-Sarre à Limoges) est un nouveau concept-store, dédié en priorité aux savoirs artistiques locaux en apportant originalité et fantaisie dans le centre-ville. Des artistes, créateurs et artisans sont invités chaque mois à exposer leurs créations, souvent des pièces uniques (peinture, photographie, dessin, sculpture, gravure, bijoux et autres accessoires atypiques) avec en prime un chineur qui fournit la galerie en mobilier singulier. Loin du stéréotype, chaque produit exposé se démarque par une identité personnelle, où des talents pas toujours connus sortent de l'ombre et sont mis en valeur. C'est avant tout un lieu convivial de partage et d'échange culturels où sont valorisés le collectif et l'entraide.

PKN Book in Xalapa
Looks like someone was pretty happy to get a copy of the official PechaKucha Night book, as the photo above shows -- actually, we're pretty sure that's the organizer of PKN Xalapa. Do you have a copy of the book? If so, why not send a photo of it with an interesting background -- we'd love to start a post series here on the blog. And if you don't have a copy, what are you waiting for?
PKN Berlin + Inspire Japan
Our good friend Uleshka -- you may recognize her name if you own a copy of the original PechaKucha book -- is organizing a smaller event in Berlin.

Poster for PKN Cairns Vol. 1
We already shared a few photos from the first PechaKucha Night in Cairns, held earlier this month, but here's also a look at the poster that was produced for the event. What you see in the middle is the official PechaKucha Night book, and you can still order it online here.
