PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 12

PechaKucha Night in Buenos Aires Vol. 12 was held late last month -- attracting an amazing crowd of 600 -- and organizer May Groppo sends in this report. It is autumn in Buenos Aires, but the night was warm and welcoming for PKN Vol. 12. People arrived early and the 600 attendees were received by DJ Defi and host Mandetta. The first part included an indie record label (Los años luz), an amazing and amusing photographer (Luis Abadi), an NGO (Voces y Ecos), a mathematician and writer (Guillermo Martinez), a prolific and well-known musician who perfomed live during the slides (Santi Vazquez), a videogame creator (Three Melons), and graphic designers and editors who brought with them a choir to sing "All You Need Is Love" (Monoblock). After a never-ending buzzling break, the second part began at around 10pm with sustainable design, a street artist (Gustavo Gagliardo), a well-known fashion brand (Juana de Arco), architects with amazing creativity within a budget (PLAN), an artist and her boutique hotel (Yanina Szalkowicz), and another photographer (Sandro Pujía). The event made me proud to be a part of this big family, and having run "a dozen" PechaKuchas shows how Buenos Aires has embraced the concept! For more info on the presenters and the venue, please visit and more pics by Blue Vertigo here. The image at the top of the post is taken from the presentation by street artist Gustavo Gagliardo. We'll be featuring a few presentations from PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 12 here at PechaKucha Daily over the next few days. Yanina Szalkowicz: PLAN: Monoblock: Luis Abadi: Santi Vazquez:

PKN Barcelona Vol. 5

Yesterday we posted about the very cool eco project that PechaKucha Night in Barcelona is participating in as of Vol. 5, and today we take a look at how that particular edition turned out. With an absolutely stunning turnout of 700 and some well deserved TV coverage, it certainly sounds like organizer Petz Scholtus is doing something right. Here's more from Petz: PechaKucha Barcelona had another successful night, breaking all records at the Palau de Congresos: some 700 people turned up to see the 12 fabulous speakers give their best on stage. This time the stage was perfect, thanks to BarcelonActiva who let PechaKucha be part of el Día del Emprendedor. The beer was flowing, thanks to Estrella Damm, and networking was in the air. Amongst the ideas presented were a story told by Playmobile figures, tips for how to create a brand with 0 budget, the reason why advertising should be more like rock'n'roll, the making off a type font, poetic Art for Palestine, the latest in traveling and mobile phones, how to educate to create, what Shiatsu Zen is all about, the story behind a series of illustrations, why public space should be treated as a product and not a space, how to breath life into videos, and about the power of sensations. Our thanks go out to Dan Peisajovich & Yvonne Gindre from COMPLOT, Rafa Soto, Alex Trochut, Augusto & Mary from LINKIDLAB, Marco Lampugnani, Eloísa Avila, Fritz Gnad, María Castelló from Fellowsisters, Eva Garriga & Amaia Ariztegi, Pablo Alvarez, Paula Cox, and Roberto Bolullo from Avalok for sharing their work and ideas. Below, a few more photos from PKN Barcelona Vol. 5 -- there's lots more in this Flickr photostream.
