@ VOL 36 ON AUG 26, 2018

Through study, design, and implementation, we are capable of setting up food systems that mimic nature's flow, are easy to manage, work on nature's renewable engine, and house closed fertility loops that increase overall sustainability. "Making" these places where nature and production meet offer many rewards both felt on an individual/spiritual growth curve and on the greater community that have access to fresh food and experiences within nature's matrix. Darby Weaver shares with us about these fascinating systems in her presentation.

Ice Cream Bells Are Ringing

Just last week in Chicago (at PKN Chicago Vol. 25), Michael and Diane Jackson gave a presentation on their 20 years of marriage. Little did Diane know that Michael had an extraordinary surprise in store for her: After waiting 20 years, Michael was finally able to give me my surprise wedding gift. In 1993 he had secretly booked and paid for a Mr. Whippy ice-cream van to be our getaway vehicle to take us to our honeymoon suite. We stood with our assembled guests outside Stanley House and waited. Sadly Mr. Whippy did not show. Michael has been harboring a sense of loss and regret ever since. Last night, following our PechaKucha presentation about the saga of our 20 years together, I hear that familiar sickly sound of ice-cream bells. Parked outside Martyrs was the vehicle of my dreams, complete with the customary beer cans (Boddingtons of course) tied behind. Please note Chicago had a major snow storm yesterday which makes this act of love even more unbelievable. We served ice-creams to everyone who attended PK and then set off into the night, bells ringing, cans clanking to our home in Rogers Park. I still can't believe my crazy husband. What's more, the owners keep the vehicles in storage over the winter and so the ice-cream van is now on my insurance. I am the luckiest girl in the world. Truth be told, upon the arrival of this little ice-cream truck, there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Take a look at Chicago's Vol. 25 event page for more photos of this memorable event.

Creating Legends

In today's Presentation of Day, "Creating Legends" from PKN Bangor, Maine Vol. 8, fiction writer Brad Beauregard discusses the way stories, legends, and tall tales help us revive the experience of the past, even if the past itself is lost in the process.

Creating Enduring Art

Why is it that structures like the Pyramids of Giza remain thousands of years later, yet our skyscrapers go up and down in less than a century? Artist representative Ryan Roth talks (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 109) about how undervalued art and architecture is in many of today's cities. Buildings are often built in standard ways with art as only an afterthought. They are torn down again within a few years whereas buildings that are built in artistic ways are left standing for hundreds of years. Check out the full scoop in "Creating Enduring Art."

How to Create Slides

  When you make a presentation, you don’t always have the opportunity to hire a designer — after this, you won’t need one. Ellen Finkelstein wants to help us create our own powerful, vibrant presentations. In “How to Create Slides” from PKN Fairfield Vol. 1, she speaks to those who feel that making slides for a presentation can be a real challenge, and breaks down her methods of creating simple, communicative presentations.


Creating a presentation: UPDATE

Each PechaKucha presentation consists of 20 images shown for 20 seconds each - they will auto-advance as a slideshow, so there is no going back, pausing, or skipping around. Please use PowerPoint - if you don't have it, skip to the next section. Create 20 slides of one (or more) images each Slides can also be text, but text is best kept to a minimum so it doesn't distract from your talk. Try an intro and/or closing slide with your name and contact info (these count toward your 20 slides). After your slides are created and organized, make sure your slideshow is set to auto-advance after 20 seconds - no mouse-click needed. (In PowerPoint, this is under the "transitions" tab. Make sure you click Apply to All so each slide gets the same timing.) TEST your slideshow several times. PRACTICE the presentation if you want what you're saying to line up with certain images. Once the slideshow is set the way you want it, share with us via or similar file-sharing method. OR - if the above has you scratching your head, never fear. choose 20 images make sure the file names indicate their order, ie "01 Sheehan.jpg" "02 Sheehan.jpg" etc. Share them with us via a folder on Dropbox ( or your favorite file-sharing method. I'll make the PowerPoint (no frills or fanciness, but I'll include your name) and upload the video for you. Questions? Need ideas, inspiration, guidance?

Performing, Creating and Collaborating

"The great thing about collaboration is that it is driven by structure." In "Performing, Creating and Collaborating" from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol.18, Christopher Allery has had a 20 year creative career that has focused on the art of collaboration. This began with an art show during his second year of his Bachelor of Arts (Visual Art). Staged at the Majestic Theatre in Pomona, Chris worked with fellow friends and fellow undergrads to create an immersive installation and performance incorporating found objects, artificial light, and original music which was performed on the Majestic’s grand piano. In this presentation, Chris shares collaborative relationships that he has explored have been fruitful but also stretched him sometimes painfully, but also professionally, and creatively.
