Cultural Exchange Through Humor and an Art Support Group in Indonesia
Presentations Luke Lawrence and Mika Karashima are from the British Council in Japan. 2012 is an exciting year for the UK, with the London Olympics and Paralympics games, as well as the Diamond Jubilee. In their presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93), that explain how the British Council in Japan has launched a campaign named the GREAT OGIRI to promote the usefulness of learning English and exchanging culture through humor. Raymond Malvin's presentation (in Indonesian, from PKN Jakarta Vol. 8) is about Kopi Keliling, a movement (in the form of a variety of creative activities) that believes that art and creativity can make changes that are meaningful to the Indonesian people. By juxtaposing art and creativity (both in terms of work and the person behind the work) to a wider community, it hopes to promote a desire to produce art. Kopi Keliling allows talented young visual artists to display their work through events held regularly, moving from one public space to another. Although the intent is to showcase the works of these artists, Kopi Keliling understands that without an audience these works are meaningless, and so another goal is to create interaction between the audience and the art (and artist). Posters We have just one new poster on the Tumblr blog today, and it's an uncovered "blast from the past" from 2010, for Bialystok's very first PKN. Photos Today's gallery [Flickr] covers Springfield, Illinois' Vol. 6, which was held back in February. The city's next event, Vol. 8, is set for August 2 at the Capital City Bar & Grill Theatre. Calendar Tonight's (July 10) event takes the form of PKN Huancayo Vol. 10, and tomorrow you need to look to Nashville, for the city's Vol. 7.

99 Cent Futures
How do you imagine 99 cent products will look in the future? A miniature Mars survival kit? Carbon-absorption pills? Elliott P. Montgomery and Chris Woebken are co-founders of the Extrapolation Factory, an imagination-based studio for design-lead futures studies. They explore society's fascination with the future, and discuss where this future-culture is coming from. In "99 Cent Futures" from PKN New York Vol. 14, we see that through collaboration with local 99¢ stores, they combine manufacturing and design and play off of the public's concept of future demand and necessity.
A Declaration of Cultural Interest
Here at PechaKucha we're very proud to have received a variety of awards and special recognition in cities all over the world, and the latest such honor comes via the PechaKucha Night series in Colonia del Sacramento. The series has received from the Uruguay government -- more specifically, the Ministry of Education and Cutlure -- an official "Declaration of Cultural Interest," and that's before the first event has even been held (it's set for February 21). A big congratulations to the PKN Colonia del Sacramento team!
City Focus: Colonia
Colonia del Sacramento is our "City Focus" this week, first because the city will have its very first PechaKucha Night on February 21 -- see the official event page for all the details. And, as we mentioned on the Daily Blog last week, the Uruguayan government has also issued an official "Declaration of Cultural Interest" to the series -- how's that for a vote of support!
What to do when designing for the East from a Western perspective?

In "Cross-Cultural Design" from a very special Swiss PechaKucha Night from PKN Tokyo, we see that Susanna and Alex possess a strong sense of social and political idealism that they enjoy incorporating into their works. They hope to inspire their surrounding community to think differently, and encourage them to voice their opinions.
