The goal is to identify modern "Andarilhas", artists who are inspired by their own rode's life story, those who look at culture and heritage with very contemporary eyes. Having herself lived all over rural Brazil, she believes these people and their stories have the ability to unite creative manifestations from all corners of Brazil.

It will also be the first time a PKN in Ekaterinburg is themed, with all presentations tied to art -- below, more details on the event:This time PechaKucha Night Ekaterinburg invites everyone to think about contemporary art during the parallel program of The Second Ural Industrial Biennale of Contemporary art. We wonder if there is some place for modern art in modern person`s life? You can tell there about your personal experience, projects, interests or ideas in the field of modern art. We try to find the answer if it is necessary to be an artist to make art? Do you make art? Does your art have a target? What do you what from contemporary art as a consumer? How are your projects connected with art? Photos Take a look at last week's PKN Singapore Vol. 5 courtesy of this photo gallery [Facebook]. As organizer Jon Siegel tells us, it was a fantastic event with a great turnout (close to 300) and a terrific lineup of presenters. Above, a look at part of the crowd, and presenter Jon "Yongfook" Cockle.  Calendar We kick off the week with tonight's (September 10) PKN Muscat Vol. 2, and tomorrow you can catch Toronto's Vol. 17.

In today's Presentation of the Day, "What are Kinkeshi?" from the Global Night edition of PKN Tokyo (Vol. 106), Don Kratzer discusses a miniature toy that took the world by storm in 1986, and vanished just as quickly by the time 1987 had come around. He speaks of "Kinkeshi," a small rubber character toy line with hundreds of varieties and permutations. Naturally, Don explains, Kinkeshi orginated in Japan just about 30 years ago, but he goes on to speak about the contemporary movement of creatives developing new and unique Kinkeshi characters.

Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits

A drawing lets slip its own history."   In "Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits" from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 18, Greer Townshend shares her passion for and practice of drawing.  Her work is frequently underpinned by the concept of fragility, whether related to the process of memory, language or the self.
