Kathy Gruver talks about GMOs and its adverse effects on the environment. She encourage people to eat organic food in order to remain healthy and stay away from unknown deceases which might attack them in future. She demands for labelling the GMO products by the producers so that those people who do not want to consume them, can just stay away from them.

Easy as Pie

@ VOL 5 ON SEP 15, 2015

"I remember how Grandfather told me, 'Son, never fry bacon naked and never trust a topless pie!' Good advice."

When Greg Jonuk was 10 years old, a formative culinary event sent him on a lifelong pursuit of making pie. Here in Easy as Pie from PechaKucha Night Prince George Vol. 5, he sends us into the kitchens of our "pastry-deprived worlds" but not before sharing why pie making is righteous, transformative, and magical. Grab a fork and/or a scoop of ice cream and enjoy this talk on one of the world’s greatest food forms.

"You can make just about anything into booze, right? Dandelion flowers, rotten potatoes, roadkill, ...just about anything!" 

Kathleen thought she won the lottery when she and her new family moved into their new home and discovered a mature pear tree growing in the front yard…until they tried to eat one. The pears were either rock hard or complete mush, with no happy medium. She tried every which way to make something edible out of the fruit, but nothing turned out quite right. Kathleen finalized realized that the solution to her problem was not edible, but drinkable! Join maker and crafter extraordinaire Kathleen Angelski are she guides us through the step-by-step journey of making pear wine.

Fruta Feia

@ VOL 21 ON APR 15, 2016

A preferência dos grandes canais de distribuição por frutas e hortaliças perfeitas em termos de formato, cor e calibre é uma das causas para o actual desperdício alimentar, e resulta num desperdício médio de 30% do que é produzido pelos agricultores.
O projecto Fruta Feia tem como objectivo principal canalizar essa parte da produção fruto-hortícola até àquele consumidor que não julga a qualidade pela aparência, reduzindo tanto o desperdício como o gasto desnecessário dos recursos utilizados na sua produção.

A sure pick for the Pecha Kucha Aarhus All Star-Team would be Mette Krog. Back to give us - for at least the third time - an introduction to puns and wordplays that mix songs with fruits and vegetables. This time we get an example that fits the John Cleese-theme and an update on how this genre of Instagram comedy is faring.

Sounds weird? Not when Mette guides you through it!

PKN Trieste Vol. 2

Not only is it interesting to see the kinds of crowds that show up at PechaKucha Night, it's also interesting to see the stage setup that presenters are given as well as the venue. Included in this post are a few photos taken at PKN Vol. 2 in Trieste, held in October of last year at the Mercato Ortofrutticolo (Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market).

Susana Soares

Not only did the second edition of PechaKucha Night in Trieste -- held late last year -- attract over 600 attendees, it also featured an intriguing mix of presenters. The event's organizer, EXTRASMALL's Vanna Coslovich, tells us about Susana Soares and her "BEE'S PROJECT." We had more than 600 people at PKN Vol. 2 in Trieste. The location was really fascinating: the old wholesale fruit and vegetable market on the city waterfront. Every day, early in the morning, the place serves for selling wholesale. It was the very first time the market opened its doors for a creative event. Presenters came from North Italy, as well as Slovenia, Austria, and Great Britain. The most original presentation was "BEE’S PROJECT" by Susana Soares, a London-based Portuguese designer. She employs design as a tool to explore future technological implications for public engagement and awareness. Have you ever heard that bees have a phenomenal odor perception? Susana Soares explained to the public of PKN Trieste how the bees can be trained within minutes using Pavlov’s reflex to target a specific odour, and their range of detection includes pheromones, toxins, and disease diagnosis. "BEE’S PROJECT" explores how we might co-habit with natural biological systems and use their potential to increase our perceptive abilities. We have always co-existed with these systems, but their potential was unknown. Susana’s work was also exhibited in “Design and the Elastic Mind” at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, curated by Paola Antonelli, before becoming part of the permanent collection of the museum. Below, some more images from Susana's presentation.

PKN Gothenburg Celebrates Vol. 20

Only a very few cities have made it to that magic volume number -- 20, of course -- and Gothenburg is the most recent one to hit the milestone. The city has just had its Vol. 21 -- attracting a crowd of 700+ no less -- but here's a look at the big "2-0" event, with comments by organizer Jesper Larsson. On June 6th (before the holidays) we arranged the 20th edition of PechaKucha in Göteborg! Since the number 20 is holy in this context, we also arranged an anniversary party and a previous presenter reunion besides the usual presentations. After all, it was the Swedish National Day and since people don't know how to celebrate it here, we thought we would introduce a new tradition: 20 x 20. Eccentric graffiti artist Grafitta both presented and later performed live dressed up like some beautiful creature out of Avatar. Karin Granstrand & Annika Wahlström presented the Folkdräkt 2.0-projekt, trying to reinvent the Swedish national costume. Indian PK Mahanandia presented his life story – the most heart-warming story ever told at PechaKucha Gothenburg. It was like Slumdog Millionaire but for real, and it ended with PK riding his bike all the way from India to Sweden in order to be with the love of his life. They are still married and living in Borås with their two children. Legendary progressive theatre and music group Nationalteatern warned the audience of their upcoming come back. Brittish Scott Blixen presented postpunk graphics. The chief of Sweden's only design museum, Röhsska, showed pictures of rotten fruit and spoke about the beauty of aging. Since it was the Swedish National Day, designer Dan Henriksson offered a new suggestion on how to celebrate the modern multicultural Sweden. Here is what he had to say about it: "As Swedes in general avoid waving or presenting our flag even on this day, fearing being seen as a nationalist or simply not caring, I wanted to provoke thoughts about how strong of a symbol a flag can be and what it actually means to belong to a nationality. The importance of this action is the context of our own national holiday, while creating all other countries flags but with the exact yellow and blue colours that Sweden flag has, and at the same time not presenting our own. I created hand-held fabric flags for the visitors to wave around, as well as strung up flags decorating the ceilings." The group Pervers Kroki (Perverted Croquis) presented the first issue of their fanzine and also put on a live show including arty videos, DJ Dienasty, live perverted croquis, and a copy-machine where you could xerox your genitalia. DJ Naomi Paradise playing when the people are starting to arrive.

Ippo x 365 - Reflections on the Japanese Front

For last year's Inspire Japan event, Motoko Shoboji stepped up and put together a special PechaKucha event in New York to help raise awareness and to contribute to the global fundraiser. This year, to mark the upcoming anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan (on Sunday, March 11), he is organizing a follow-up event, "Ippo x 365 - Reflections on the Japanese Front," that will take place tomorrow (Saturday, March 10). We've included details in this post, and there's more in this post on the Spoon & Tamago blog -- Spoon & Tamago's Johnny Strategy will be MCing the event, as well as presenting.

This event will feature visual presentations by designers / architects who have been involved in the first year of recovery effort on the frontlines in Japan. This event will be a response to the “Global PechaKucha Night- Inspire Japan” event that archiPicnic successfully hosted last year. What has happened since then? Where are we now? In the first year of Japan's recovery, how have designers and architects been able to address the massive damage in the cities, villages and buildings?

More Magazine Library, a 3000-seat Venue for Koszalin, and a 'Raucous' Night in Nishinomiya

Let's take a look at what's happening in PechaKucha today. Presentations As we promised yesterday, we continue to share presentations from last Friday's special PechaKucha event at the Magazine Library exhibition. Today you can hear Antonin Gaultier talk about his new digital Tokyo fashion magazine, De Rigueur (available for Kindle), and Tokyo-based designer Ian Lynam shares some of the magazine titles that have had a big impact on him. Posters Two new posters today on our Tumblr blog, starting with the one (above) for the upcoming PKN Koszalin Vol. 9 (on May 25). You see a piece of the amazing venue where it will be held in it, and below, a better look. You'll also find the beautifully illustrated poster for PKN Barcelona Vol. 16. It's the Koszalin Amphitheatre, and it can hold 3000 spectators -- that's PKN Tel Aviv territory! Events We of course have a few new galleries of event photos to point out, and the photo above is an oldie but goodie, from PKN Beirut Vol. 8 (the most recent event in that city was last week's Vol. 14).PKN Ferrol Vol. 7 -- you'll also find a video of the entire evening A special event in the town of Skorping, organized by PKN Aalborg's Annette Scheibel (photos by Mathies Brinkmann) [Flickr]PKN Manizales Vol. 2 [Flickr]Here we have a report from PKN Nishinomiya organizer Brent Jones on the city's recent PKN Vol. 12:Friday, April 13 (that's right . . . Friday the 13th) was another raucous night of creativity and fun at CUBE in Nishinomiya. We continue to attract an eclectic mix of presenters, and this beautiful Spring night was no exception. We started the evening by showing Mark Dytham’s PechaKucha Global Events presentation from the PKN website. We explained to the audience that we are locked into our set events (because our venue is a school), but that we try to promote these events as much as we can. Our first live presenter was Teruko Ashida, who introduced her organic fruit farm in Amagasaki and the events she holds there. Peter Sterlacci followed up with a lively introduction to Personal Branding. Shuji Narita came next with a humorous look at common English mistakes made by Japanese, and he was followed by Carmen Tamas and Shawn White swapping musings about the charms of Japan and Romania. Our Beer Break was followed by a PKN formatted workshop on Old School Hip Hop by Warren Decker. Natsuko Shiraishi then introduced her work with groups of indigenous Mangyan on the island of Mindoro in the Philippines. The audience was then treated to the trials and tribulations of learning how to scull by Richard Miller, and Wes Lang rounded out the night with a poetic look at Unkai, or the sea of clouds that can be viewed from various summits in Japan. We again enlisted the help of several students in introducing the presenters and keeping the evening full of unexpected twists and turns, and are already looking forward to PKN Nishinomiya Volume 13 on July 6th.Calendar As we mentioned yesterday, tonight (May 15) you can look forward to PKN Helsingborg Vol. 8, and then tomorrow night (May 16) Wagga Wagga will be hosting its PKN Vol. 6.

Materials, Tradition, and Craft

In today's Presentation of the Day, "Materials, Tradition, and Craft" from a special PechaKucha Tokyo event entitled 「ICSでNight!」 at the ICS College of Arts, designer Yuki Tanaka speaks on her reverance for Japanese traditional craftsmanship. Her idea for a bottle holder is rejected due to it being too costly both time-wise and money-wise. She redesigns her holder to a less costly design that is remarkably elegant. She also shows us some of the other unique projects she has undertaken, including a spherical fruit basket and a cubic clock composed of three different variations of bronze.

The Naked Truth

If we can strip to our true essence, we can embrace our own story. Using images of painted bodies, and a talk laced with quotes by famous people of wisdom, Tirza Shelton shows us how self-enriching it can be to shed the layers we have all been cloaking our true selves in since Adam and Eve first tasted the fruit of knowledge. In “The Naked Truth” from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 9, find out what is at your core.

Strange Fruit; Split Seed

"Have you ever seen a photo that left you utterly speechless, gutted your ability to even comprehend what you are looking at?"In Strange Fruit; Split Seed from Beacon, Vol. 1. artist Jean-Marc Superville Sovak presents a series of drawings based on lynching photographs and his illustrative reactions. He explores images that shake you to your core not for what can be seen in them, but rather what can't be seen in them, and how what matters most are the stories in them that often have never been told.  Watch this moving presentation and confront the limits of interpretation.
