Arts Month Sampler

@ VOL 2 ON SEP 04, 2012

Williamsburg is a famous tourist destination, especially through the Summer season and some major holidays. The city was looking for ways to extend that draw to what they call the shoulder seasons. They then hired Terry Buntrock to create and orchestrate Arts Month. Terry has managed to fill the month with dozens of art related events, and this presentation gives us just a sampling of some of those events.

The economic development director for the city, Michele DeWitt, gives us all the W's of Williamsburg's newly created Arts District (except perhaps for who is NinjArt?).

Design Conspiracy

They lurk near cracks on the sidewalk. You duck under them while passing under a low doorway. They keep you from your destination. They're everywhere. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Design Conspiracy" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93, graphic designer Joachim Müller Lancé takes us down the rabbit hole in exposing a cabal so covert that it hides in plain sight: this is the caution stripe conspiracy.

St. Joseph - Small Town, Big Heart

"The only way to shed light on ignorance and resentment is to talk about it."In St. Joseph - Small Town, Big Heart, from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 134, Lana Rappette, Assistant and Communications Lead for the Whirlpool Creatives Association reveals that St Joseph, MI is far more than just a sleepy summer tourist destination on the shore of Lake Michigan. Sure, St Joseph has its sandy beaches and an agricultural  industry fit for making apple pies, but it also has a thriving, respected and close knit arts community. One that is immune to city borders and has helped heal relationships and restore the beauty in the neighboring city of Benton Harbor. PechaKucha St Joseph was started just one year ago in early 2015. Now all people, everyday people, have a chance to share ideas and fun doing it! The city hopes to fuel a positive and creative culture through its PechaKucha platform.

City Focus: Truckee

Situated near the border of Nevada state and gorgeous Lake Tahoe, we visit Truckee, CA in this week's City Focus. Known for its bountiful nature and scenic snowy views, Truckee is not only a wonderful destination for nature lovers, but it also has a budding and enthusiastic creative community to boot. After successfully running their very first event in May 2018, they are now hosting their 2nd event this December 7th. We wish the PechaKucha Night Truckee team the absolute best and hope to hear amazing things about this year end event!

City Focus: Ensenada

Resting comfortably on the Baja California Penninsula in Mexico, Ensenada shines bright in this week's City Focus. With a population of around 700,000 people, the city is the third largest in Baja California and is home to an ethnically diverse community that fosters a unique culture, including being the birthplace of the modern fish taco! Maybe that is why its local nickname is "La Cenicienta del Pacífico" - The Cinderella of the Pacific. Hosting Mediterranean climates, Ensenada also finds itself at the heart of the Mexican wine country, as well as being a popular destination for tourists and cruise ships. With good wine and a fun culture, it truly sounds like the perfect place for a PechaKucha; and as luck would have it, our friends down in Ensenada have arranged their Vol. 3 event, which will take place on July 11th. If you are in the area, you won't want to miss it! Viva Ensenada y viva PechKucha!

Large wide kunming

City Focus: Kunming

For this week's City Focus, we lend our gaze to "The City of Eternal Spring", Kunming, located in the Yunnan Province in southwest China. Home to over 6.5 million people and a melting pot of 26 indigenous nationalities, the city has established itself as the largest in the province and has flourished as the political, economic and cultural hub of the area. The nickname of the city comes from the year-round moderate climate that stays roughly between 8.9-20.3 degrees Celcius. However, the weather is far from the only thing that makes Kunming such an attractive destination. Spectacles such as the Stone Forrest, Dianchi Lake, Jiuxiang Scenic Area, and Western Hill can all be found within the folds of the city, and provide beautiful sights to anyone experiencing them. Beyond the sights, the intermingling but unchanging cultures of the different nationalities bring to fruition very unique customs and fun traditions like the Torch Festival or the Huashan Festival, where these groups can showcase their contrasting yet similar styles. Adding to those opportunities, the city is hosting their Vol. 1 event on the 26th of July, it is surely not something anyone should want to miss! Best of luck to all of our friends in Kunming!

Large wide christchurch

City Focus: Christchurch

This week, we find ourselves heading to the southern hemisphere for our City Focus, landing in the beautiful destination of Christchurch, New Zealand. Dating back more than 150 years, Christchurch was the first official city in New Zealand and is the largest on the southern island, home to approximately 400,000 residents. Known as the "City of Gardens", it is host to over 700 parks and gardens, including the wonderfully grand Hagley Park, one of the larger city parks in the world. Close by, the famous Christchurch Botanic Gardens can provide a shady, peaceful environment filled with stunning plant life. For a little more excitement, the city and the surrounding suburbs also feature exciting attractions like Sumner Beach and the Adrenalin Forest.  It is safe to say that there is plenty to do if you live in the city or are just visiting, but if you want more, swing by Christchurch's Vol. 40 event on August 1st! Through the face of many adversaries, Christchurch continues to stand tall and rebuild that which has been knocked down, persevering and acting as an inspiration to all of us around the globe. We stand with you, Christchurch!
