Silent Dinner Parties

@ VOL 6 ON JUN 20, 2013

A Silent Dinner Party is no ordinary dinner party. Hosted by Honi Ryan around the world, there are certain stipulations to uphold: guests cannot use any form of vocal or written communication. With 35 performances in 11 cities (8 countries thus far!) Silent Dinner Parties are a means to bridge cultural divides, and function as a sort of "social sculpture."

"Presentation of the Day" on September 5, 2013.

Poster for PKN Washington DC Vol. 12

PechaKucha Night in Washington DC Vol. 12 is coming up (May 20), to be held at the ML2 Showroom. We're including the full press release for the event, as well as the full list of presenters with links, which you'll also find on the official event page. M2L hosts this special edition of Capitol PechaKucha Night TAKE 12 on Thursday, May 20th at their Showroom in Cady's Alley. "EXPOSING DC'S CRIME SOLVERS, PERFORMERS, ARTISTS AND PRANKSTERS" Be ready for a unique mix of presenters including a writer of fashion crime mysteries, directors of Moliere, an organizer of pillow fights, a wonderland creator, a Floating Museum curator, an expert on voyeurism, a tactile dinner planner and transformers of the underground. PechaKucha --Japanese for the sound of conversation-- taps into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown. The brainchild of Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, Klein Dytham architecture, Tokyo, began in 2003 as a forum for designers to meet, network, and show their current work to the public, and has since spread to over 300 cities across the world. Organized and launched in March 2007 by sisters and partners of ita-design, Rouzita and Bita Vahhabaghai, Capitol PechaKucha promotes local DC creatives working in all media including the visual arts, architecture, fashion, design, music, film, and literature. Also referred to as "Twitter for the visually inclined", the PechaKucha Night presentation format allows presenters 20 images each shown for 20 seconds - giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. Talks are concise, the interest level is constant, and more presenters receive the opportunity to share their work. Reception 8:00 PM - 8:30 PM Presentations 8:30 PM - 9:30 PM After Party 9:30 - Midnight with Music by Resident DJ Brien Watson Media Sponsor: DC Modern Luxury Complimentary wine, beverage and finger food will be provided. TICKETS IN ADVANCE ONLINE: $10 - SPACE IS LIMITED Featured presenters: Ellen Byerrum, well-known Author of the Crime of Fashion mysteries Bruce Witzenburg of the Capitol Improv Group responsible for the No Pants Metro Ride, DC Pillow Fight and Survive DC Edgar Endress of the Floating Lab Collective known for transforming a taco delivery truck into a mobile museum Breeze Giannasio of the Arts Coalition for Dupont Underground on their efforts to revive the old Dupont Trolley Station into an Arts Hub Stanley Ira Hallet, FAIA, Architect and Professor, discusses The Voyeur in Architecture and the Cinema Cade Martin, Photographer also known for his collaboration on Wonderland: The Washington Ballet book Carmen Wong of Banished Productions on the synaesthetic experience of A Tactile Dinner Bruce MacPhail and Oli Robinson, Cofounders of the Picnic Theater Company, give an exclusive peak behind the scenes of their outdoor summer production of Moliere's "The Hypochondriac"

Finding Love at PKN Chicago

This is the kind of story that can't help but put a smile on your face. Here then is Crandon Gustafson in his own words -- and that's him giving his presentation at PechaKucha Night in Chicago, in April of last year (at the city's Inspire Japan event).I had flown in that morning from Tokyo, arriving just a few hours before PechaKucha. After the presentations, [Sakae] approached to thank me for the small work I had done for Japan. Since we're both architects and she was new to Chicago, I suggested we talk further about local design and architecture, and we met for dinner a week later. When I returned from Japan that day, I didn't expect to go back for awhile, but in June we flew to Tokyo together so I could meet her family! We had a small ceremony in a Chicago area Buddhist temple on October 1st. Every month we celebrate the 16th day as the anniversary of our meeting at PechaKucha!
