New York: City on a Grid
BY GERARD KOEPPEL
@ VOL 7
ON DEC 04, 2015
Actor David Duchovny (!) says of Gerard Koeppel's new book: “ I’ve spent most of my life walking the straight lines of the world’s greatest city, and have never thought to ask: Is this a different shape from other cities, and if so, why, and who did it? Koeppel’s book answers these questions, in an easygoing, good-humored manner, with interesting facts unearthed on nearly every page. This is one of those books you always wished would be written, and here it is. Indispensable for anyone interested in the history of New York and cities generally, and bound to fuel cocktail conversations up, down, and across the city for years to come.”
Listen here for a whirlwind history of NY's grid as it develops!
Gerard Koeppel writes history, mostly New York related, but also in anything from magazines and journals to historical signage in city parks. He was also a captain of a charter sailboat, an awful law student, a licensed hack (out of a Greenwich Village taxi garage), and then, for many years, a radio reporter/writer/editor/producer, mostly with CBS News.

Our 2012 global event had the goal of celebrating every PechaKucha Night city, worldwide. It was a weeklong celebration (February 20-26) that brought all PechaKucha organizers, presenters, and attendees together, with a focus on highlighting all of the amazing cities that make up the global PechaKucha community.
"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format.
Once a year on February 20th — the anniversary of PechaKucha’s founding — we celebrate the proliferation of worldwide creativity, and the amazing interconnectedness of cities from all over. PechaKucha Global Night is a coming together — a time where we recognise that each PechaKucha Night is not alone, but part of something greater. Find a PechaKucha Night in your city and join in the global festivities!
EU-Japan Fest supports artists and communists in culture and the arts, arranging exchanges between Europe and Japan in this fields. Most of these activities revolve around the European Capital of Culture initiative. Funding is provided through members of the business community and EU member country ambassadors to Japan.

Hart Island (NY)
BY BRAM BROERSE
@ VOL 16
ON FEB 23, 2016
Sinds 1869 worden ongeclaimde en ongeïdentificeerde New Yorkers begraven op Hart Island. Bram Broerse van het Utrechtse ontwerpbureau Studio AIRPORT heeft de website ontworpen van het Hart Island Project, waarop bezoekers verhalen kunnen achterlaten over mensen die begraven liggen op Hart Island.
Studio AIRPORT bedacht een methode om te meten hoe lang begraven mensen uit de geschiedenis verdwenen zijn, getiteld ‘The Clocks of Anonymity’. Een klok begint te lopen vanaf het moment dat iemand op het eiland begraven is. Zodra een bezoeker een verhaal, foto, of video plaatst stopt de klok met tikken.

PKN Salt Spring Island Vol. 1
The second PechaKucha Night in Salt Spring Island is set for next week (August 27) -- see the list of presenters on the official event page -- but here's a look at the first event, held in early June at The Barn (an appropriate name, we think).
PKN Phillip Island Vol. 2
Who says a PechaKucha Night can't be held in a chapel? In this post we share a few photos from last month's PechaKucha Night in Phillip Island Vol. 2, held at the Trenavin Chapel -- you'll find the full list of presenters on the event page. And as you'll see in the photos, the venue certainly didn't affect our PK tradition of "thinking and drinking." Please note that PKN Phillip Island Vol. 3 is set for February 19.
PechaKucha Phillip Island vol 4
What talent! On Sunday June 16 2013, PechaKucha Vol 4 saw Geoffrey Carran and Rowena Martinich, Cory White, Sally Land, Josephine Kent (on behalf of Creative Gippsland Arts Festival "Gatescape"), John Janssen, Simon Curphey, Natasha Williams, Graeme Burgan, Mike Cleeland, Stephen Fullarton, David White and Robyn Miller take to the Trenavin Chapel stage for an evening of inspiration, creativity and entertainment. Thank you all!
Little Island Management
In today's Presentation of the Day, "Little Island Management" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 67, Mari Kojima haphazardly, yet hilariously, speaks in a stream-of-consciousness fashion on her photography, her past, and her artistic themes. She elaborates on the idea that the photographer learns about his/her desires through the act of viewing and shooting the world with their instrument.

Island Time Machine
“The goal is to try and make commentary on sociopolitical issues– things I see happening in the news.” In Island Time Machine from PechaKucha Night Honolulu’s 24th Volume, Presenter Culture Shocka gives an eye-catching display of his portfolio. It doesn’t take long to spot the cultural influences in his vibrant work. In an attempt to reduce what could be lost in translation from his mind to yours, he uses a Modern and Minimalist-inspired approach, mixing equal parts Cartooning and Graphic Design.
City Focus: Zaporizhzhya
Our City Focus this week heads down Lenin Avenue, one of the longest avenues in Europe which goes through the entire city of Zaporizhzhya, Ukraine, gathering the city's best cafes, restaraunts, and it's PechaKucha Night. Head to their city page for a taste of Zaporizhzhya's creativity!
