PKN Bangalore Talks Trash

No, PKN Bangalore isn't looking to insult you; the theme of their Vol. 11 event will be "garbage" of all sorts. Here's what they have to say about it: Bangalore has begun to fight its garbage problem, but weren’t we all already? This PechaKucha Bengaluru will see speakers dive into the depths of the discarded, pulling out stacks of critical and cultural debris: garbage collection, scrap art, city planning, rubbish music, trashy movies and other things from the dumpster. From the serious to the arcane, the joyful to the profane, this grown-up version of show-and-tell – 20 slides for 20 seconds each – will be sure to leave you breathless... To see more great posters from PechaKucha Nights all over the world, check out our Tumblr blog.

Presenter: Ilya Kuzubov // the Creator of Taibola festival   Thereis quite a great amount of open-airs in Russia nowadays, but mostly they have entertaining and commercial character. In 2012 we decided to create a new project – “Taibola” festival. This project has volunteer and ideological character, where the aims which will be achieved by means of entertainment and involvement are following: To increase the interest of the citizens of Arkhangelsk Region to the culture and nature of their native land, as well as to make it more attractive for tourists.  To tell the participants and guests of the festival that self-organization and mutual aid is not a myth. Everyone can author, discover one’s new abilities and organize one’s personal cultural recreation.  To increase the level of ecological responsibility of the citizens by means of master-classes, lectures and explanatory works. In addition “Taibola” is an advocacy of healthy life style, a chance to learn handwork (this craft is especially valuable in time of offices and digital technology), a way to gain knowledge, an activator of personal growth and socio-cultural activity of participants. Objects of art made of sinker serve as one of the main peculiarities of the festival. Such wooden “sculptures” will underline natural beauty of the summer seashore of the White Sea. The festival program is based on several music-areas, cinema-area, master-classes which will be delivered simultaneously, festival tearoom (chill-out), trade fair (hand-made, souvenirs, etc.); outdoor games, intellectual games and street performances will also be organized there. Taibola is a path through taiga and also a neglected road in Arkhangelsk province. Metaphorically is it the way to inside of oneself and it will be in the open air on the seashore of the White Sea. We position “Taibola” as family all-age measures with free admission and abundantcultural program. As soon as guests leave, equipment and guests of another towns are sent back, the dismantling of utility structures will be started and as the result there will be only objects of art left on the seashore. At the same time the cleaning of festival territory will be commenced. Garbage will be gathered, sorted and removed by force of the festival.   Offical site:

Edmonton's NextGen / PechaKucha Vol. 15

The Edmonton Journal has a great write-up of PKN Edmonton's Vol. 15, held by Edmonton's NextGen just last week. Here's what they had to say about this sizable event: Guests enjoyed musings on everything from driving and garbage, to a spirited presentation by Steven Hodges on “full-frontal nerdity,” or openly embracing one’s passions. Firefly Theatre & Circus wowed with a stunning aerial performance, while popular local DJs Girls Club spun to an energized crowd. The fun continued for one Pecha Kucha presenter in particular, as Brian Webb hosted the 29th annual Brian Webb Dance Company (BWDC) Art Auction on Sunday, March 10. Art lovers congregated at the Winspear Centre for a showcase of 73 contemporary art pieces by some of the city’s finest, including Scott Cumberland, Kari Duke and Dean Drever, to name a few. The full write-up can be found here, and a profusion of photos from Vol. 15 can be found on their event page.
