Geist frei - Träume am Anfang?

@ VOL 9 ON MAY 12, 2016

In Susi's Zauberei geht es nicht nur um vegetarisches, biologisches Essen, sondern um die Arbeit mit Menschen mit all ihren Besonderheiten, um gelebte Inklusion. Menschen mit Handicap finden in Susi's Zauberei einen Arbeitsplatz, an dem sie sich wohl fühlen können. Susanne Füssinger-Witschuinig hat ihr Lokal aus einem Autoritätsproblem heraus gegründet - Freiheit ist ihr wichtig. Diese möchte sie auch leben. In ihrer "Zauberei" klappt das wunderbar.

Quidditch - The Fictional Game Redefining Sport

@ VOL 25 ON JUN 09, 2016

"There's no other sport that I know that's as inclusive as quidditch. It's brought nerds to sport—nerds who have never played sports before. It's a gateway drug to sports and a healthy lifestyle."

Quidditch player and Team Canada Head Coach Chris Radojewski dispels some misconceptions about one of the world's fasting growing sports, Quidditch is indeed real—and it's growing, staking a reputation as fast and hard-hitting while paving the way for gender inclusivity in sport.

The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred

@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Number 1. Be an ornery artist. You're mad. You went to art school. You go to shows in basements and living rooms. You are the poster child of the scurvy-laced bohemia. Your parents can't pay your rent."

In The De-Institution: Or. How to Make A Contemporary Arts Space with no Capital, Networks or Cred from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, artist and founder of Dreamland Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY, Dana Mcknight, illustrates twenty steps to carving out a cutting-edge, artist-run space outside of the dominant, institutional realm. Mcknight cautions, "To be an institution is to own-- ­­­to place value on possession rather than action. To fixate on conservative contentment rather than Hope and Possibility. Artist-led spaces fizzle out all the time. Let us not leave behind the phoenix eggs to merely touch a tusk in the Elephant graveyard."

Universal Design

@ VOL 18 ON SEP 24, 2016

"It is a design process that enables and empowers a diverse population by improving human performance, health and wellness, and social participation."

In Universal Design from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 18, SUNY Distinguished Professor and Director of the IDeA Center in Buffalo, NY, Edward Steinfeld, ArchD, AIA, provides an overview of how the built environment affects access. The University at Buffalo's Center for Inclusive Design and Environmental Access (IDeA Center) is dedicated to making environments and products more usable, safer and healthier in response to the needs of an increasingly diverse population. The IDeA Center’s activities are based on the philosophy of Inclusive Design, often called “Universal Design” or “Design for All.” It is a way of thinking that can be applied in any design activity, business practice, program or service involving interaction of people with the physical, social or virtual worlds.

Designing for diversity – Innovating for all

@ VOL 16 ON AUG 10, 2017

Dr Farnaz Nickpour is an inclusive designer, an associate professor in Design & Human-centred Innovation at University of Liverpool, and director of the Inclusive Design Research Group (IDRG) in the UK. Farnaz gave this PechaKucha at Vol.16 in London and challenged the audience to reconsider how they approach design and raised the critical question - who will use your designs and how will they use them? Are we designing for ourselves or for others? And how well do we know those ‘others’?

Designers shouldn't just work on assumptions! We need information and empathy.

Farnaz explores some wonderful new ideas for inclusive design such as an evolvable modular walking aid kit, easy to use and clean commodes for NHS to assist patients using the bathroom, and a bio-reactive food packaging solution inspired by the blind users.

Let's Talk: Getting Real About The 'Isms'


We believe that in order to build the bridges and break down walls, we must be willing to tackle all the "isms".  We must be willing to not just acknowledge them, but actively seek to oppose them.  Our approach to conversations about race, class, and gender forcuses on discussion about undoing systems of privilege and oppression.  My presentation would discuss how we help people make real chang and have honest convesation during our workshops!

Global Cities Week Update

So just a little update on the upcoming PechaKucha Global Cities Week, to be held February 20-26 -- although please note that we are being inclusive rather than exclusive, and a few cities that weren't able to schedule something during that period are still participating. This past weekend saw the launch of our mini site, and every day we are adding new posters to the mix (you'll of course always see them posted here as well), and new cities are getting added to the master list. On the blog, you can always point yourself to the "Global Cities Week" tag to find all the posts that relate to the event. And again, if you'd like to help spread the world, you'll find plenty of web-friendly banners to download here.

Inclusive Design

With nearly 15% of the population disabled in some manner, designers and architects simply cannot afford to ignore the importance of accessiblity. Amy Pothier and Jesse Klimitz of Quadrangle Architects want to inspire action in all designers to “get better” by designing fully inclusive and accommodating spaces for everyone, regardless of age or ability. In "Inclusive Design" from PKN Toronto Vol. 26, Amy and Jesse show us that Accessible design does not need to be clinical and ugly when accommodating the 1 in 7 persons in Canada that live with some form of a visible or non-visible disability.

How to Build a Boy

“Telling the other kids ‘the brown snake is coming out of the cave’ is simply not appropriate.” Karen Ball and Jeremy Wineberg speak on the lack of exciting and inclusive programs for young boys. In “How to Build a Boy” from PKN Madison, WI Vol. 11 they read comical stories related to them by their boys’ school faculty, and show us how these letters lead to the creation of Builder Boys: a program where young boys can let out their zaniness, and build self-confidence free from constraints.

Advocacy through Animation

"When you educate a man, you educate an individual, but when you educate a woman, you educate a generation." In Advocacy through Animation from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Vol. 29,  Neia Omer tells her story. Animation is a inclusive medium when one is trying to reach a large subset of individuals. What do you do and where do you start if you know absolutely ZERO things about animation? What is your subject matter? Neia Omer's story is a personal journey, a personal goal, a family legacy, and one of animation being the key to her brand of advocacy.

PechaKucha People: Eddie Selover

Our PKN Organizer in Orlando, the soft-spoken but ever charismatic Eddie Selover deserves the PechaKucha People spotlight after what he said in response to Orlando being called “'home' to the latest record-breaking atrocity." "That’s wrong," he says "Orlando is home to millions of wonderful people, home to a thriving arts community, home to a renaissance of culture and inclusivity. That’s what it was yesterday, and that’s what it will still be tomorrow." Thank you Eddie for all the you do to bring the spirit of PechaKucha to Orlando and for being part of it's inclusive culture of creativity.


¡Bienvenido a PechaKucha Puerto Vallarta!

Las Noches de PechaKucha Llegan a Puerto Vallarta por Paco Ojeda Si eres artista, tienes un proyecto de impacto social, o un pasatiempo que te llena de satisfacción, es probable que has sentido la necesidad y el deseo de hablar sobre tu trabajo con otras personas. Inclusive, para muchos de nosotros, hablar sobre lo que nos apasiona frecuentemente no sólo es un deseo, sino también una necesidad, si se trata de una fuente de ingresos. Lamentablemente, y a pesar del impacto que tienen las redes sociales en nuestra vida cotidiana, carecemos de foros y espacios suficientes en los que podemos interactuar de manera personal con otros individuos que puedan estar interesados en conocer nuestras actividades. Dicho eso, llegan a Puerto Vallarta las Noches de PechaKucha, una nueva alternativa para dar a conocer tus ideas y proyectos con la gente que te rodea y con el mundo entero. Las Noches de PechaKucha surgen a principios de la década del 2000 en Tokyo, donde dos arquitectos británicos, Astrid Klein y Mark Dytham, iniciaron la costumbre de organizar reuniones con sus colegas para presentar y compartir sus proyectos más recientes en algún bar o lugar propicio para la convivencia casual. Sin embargo, muy pronto se dieron cuenta de que poner un micrófono en manos de un arquitecto o persona creativa, al proyectar una presentación PowerPoint en una pantalla, podía tener consecuencias lamentables—no cualquier persona tiene el don de presentar una idea de manera interesante, clara y concisa. Para resolver el problema y nivelar la oportunidad de compartir presentaciones de manera más amena y equitativa, diseñaron un formato muy sencillo: para compartir un proyecto, era necesario presentarlo utilizando únicamente 20 imágenes, hablando 20 segundos por cada una, resultando en una presentación de seis minutos, cuarenta segundos. Al formato lo llamaron pechacucha, vocablo japonés que describe el sonido de cuchicheo—¡si hubieran estado en México, quizás lo hubieran nombrado güiri güiri! Más de una década después, las Noches de PechaKucha se han convertido en un fenómeno social presente en más de 1,000 ciudades alrededor del mundo, en las cuales cualquier persona tiene la oportunidad de presentar su proyecto ante un público verdaderamente diverso, siempre y cuando estén dispuestos a aceptar el reto de hacerlo a través de 20 imágenes, hablando 20 segundos por imagen. Las noches de PechaKucha típicamente se llevan a cabo en bares o lugares públicos de convivencia, son gratuitas o tienen un costo mínimo, y cuentan con un número promedio de seis a diez presentadores, los cuales tienen la oportunidad de responder preguntas del público después de su presentación. Pero el impacto de una Noche de PechaKucha va mucho más allá de una noche de intercambio cultural. Cada PechaKucha—es decir cada presentación—es grabado en video para ser agregado al sitio web oficial,, donde puede ser disfrutada por cualquier persona que visite el sitio, dándole a tu proyecto un impacto global. El sitio web te permite buscar presentaciones por tema, idioma o ciudad. Como también te permite “aplaudir” las presentaciones que más te gustaron con un click, puedes buscar las más aplaudidas o las favoritas de los organizadores. ¿En Vallarta, cuándo y cómo? La primera Noche de PechaKucha en Puerto Vallarta (Puerto Vallarta Vol. 1) se llevará a cabo el sábado 26 de agosto a las 8:30 pm (20:20) en Incanto, un foro ubicado en Insurgentes 109, Col. Emiliano Zapata, junto al Río Cuale. Si te interesa asistir, envía un correo a a la brevedad, para recibir información más detallada. También puedes visitar el sitio web oficial,, para explorar otras presentaciones como fuente de inspiración. Si te interesa asistir, el evento tendrá un cover de $40 pesos por persona. La página oficial de PechaKucha Puerto Vallarta ( será actualizada en los próximos días con los nombres de los presentadores locales.
