20 Images on 20 Years in Japan, Street Art in Usti nad Labem, and Using the PechaKucha Format at School
Presentations Don Kratzer has lived in Japan for 20 years, and following the PK 20x20 format, he uses his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95) to share what he's been up to all this time using one image for each year. In her presentation (in Czech, from PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2), Zofia Drut talks about her public and street art activities, that have been held in elevators, buses, markets, and any other public venue she's been able to use. Posters We have two new posters to share today on the Tumblr blog, starting with PKN Banja Luka Vol. 6, pictured above -- the event was held just over a week ago. The other addition is a second poster for the upcoming PKN Mendoza Vol. 6 -- see the lovely "moustache" edition we shared last month. Links We are often contacted by teachers and professors from around the world who are interested in using the PechaKucha format in their classes, and here's a great example of its use at the College of Charleston, and one that was inspired by the local PKN series. Professor Jeanette Guinn says PechaKucha in an integral part of her course, Understanding Creativity. “The PechaKucha concept stretches students to be creative and expand their writing and public speaking skills,” she says. “You just can’t achieve that with a paper and a test.”Calendar Tonight (October 9) you can catch PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 3, and tomorrow sees PKN Hawkes Bay Vol. 4 and PKN Auckland Vol. 31.

In “Immersive Imaging” from PKN Garrison Vol. 7, he speaks about new methods of immersing the viewer in the image, rather than just limiting our photographic media to a simple, two-dimensional rectangle. Zak believes in a future where we will be able to share our experiences, rather than just our snapshots.

Harnessing My Inner Child’s Imagination
“I’m always living in the imaginary world of a child, even more so now because of my kids.” In "Harnessing My Inner Child’s Imagination" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 128, Roy Husada, co-founder of Rival Schools, a design studio in Vancouver Canada providing UX consulting services for start-ups, shares the story behind making the award-winning Brambleberry Tales, a series of original stories in the form of interactive apps. Blending inspiration from his own children along with the oral stories of the Indigenous People of Pacific Northwest, his team’s goal was to preserve a disappearing oral tradition while making a book both little kids and big kids (like himself) would appreciate. Bound to catch the imagination of your children, or spark your own inner child, Brambleberry Tales takes interactive story-telling to a whole other level.
