The Secret Gardens of Williamsburg, Whale Hunting in Chukotka, and Marseille's 5th Anniversary
Presentations Williamsburg is known for its historic districts, and especially the popular Duke of Gloucester Street. In this presentation by PKN Williamsburg organizer Dale Weiss (from the city's Vol. 1), we are shown a whole other part of the city that is usually hidden behind gates. Maxim Zirin is a TV producer. Together with a reporter and a cameraman he went to Chukotka to shoot a piece about how local people hunt whales for a weekly programme on Russian's NTV. Chukotka is the northeastern extremity of Asia, in the northern part of the Russian Far East. Please note that some of the images included in the presentation (in Russian, from PKN Moscow Vol. 10) are graphic.

Also up today are posters/flyers for PKN Kansas City Vol. 11, PKN Cape Town Vol. 17, PKN Warsaw Vol. 6, and PKN Banja Luka Vol. 1.

Architecture students typically build models for their theses, Callum Dowie constructed a complete building. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PechaKucha Night Auckland Vol. 17) he speaks of the tramping huts found throughout New Zealand -- once used for overnight stays on hunting trips, now used for long-term hikes -- and how they were built of materials that needed to be carried. These huts inspired him to construct a foldable, easily assembled (by 4 people, in 2 hours) living space that could have valuable real-world application for those in areas post natural disaster.

Carrie found rich imagery in descriptions of these events, and had a desire to depict the now-forgotten animals. In "Depicting the Circle Hunt" from PKN Richmond, BC Vol. 3, we see how she embarked on a road trip to recreate scenes which she skillfully translated onto paper.
