What IS Socialism?
Amidst a dramatic and surprising election season, the word "socialism" has found a place at the table, thanks, in part, to the democratic-socialist Bernie Sanders. Indeed, "socialism" was the most looked-up term on Merriam-Webster's website in 2015. However, the word seems to refer to anything from Scandinavian-style, egalitarian social programs, to tyrannical state ideologies, to utopian, post-capitalist worlds. What do socialists actually believe, and why is it relevant today?

The World Great Again: Trumping Prejudice
BY ISAAC GILBERT
@ VOL 6
ON DEC 08, 2016
When local community builder, park ranger and comedian Isaac Gilbert initially sent in 20 slides of Donald Trump, no one knew quite what to expect. Isaac offered these controversial images to deftly support his thesis, ominously and explicitly tying the recent US election of Donald Trump to the zeitgeist currently driving politics and the societal quest for change. His presentation offers a creative and elegant connection between business tycoon and capitalist President Donald Trump, and his own response of community building through a tool library and co-op model.
Since We Saw You Last Year
BY JULIA GOURLEY
@ VOL 12
ON APR 19, 2018
Julia Gourley grew up in a picture-perfect rural Indiana household with her Mom, Dad, brother and a menagerie of pets. Following a midwestern college tour, with multi-year stops in Kansas and Ohio, Julia landed in SJ/BH, Michigan on her birthday in 2005 to begin work at the Krasl Art Center. Life took some wild turns when she ended up being a single mom to then 5 year old Isaac while simultaneously assuming the role of executive director of the Krasl Art Center. An incredible network of friends and family helped keep life afloat during a rather turbulent time. Then a few years later, a girl's night out led Julia to meet Duane Donohue, who continues to seem too good to be true... this PK is the story... of what they've been up to "Since We Saw You Last Year".

PKN Columbus Vol. 8
PechaKucha Night was back in Columbus last month for an eighth edition. Held at Landmark's Gateway Theater and with a superb turnout of more than 225, here's a report from that city's organizer Lindsay Kenzig, including quotes from some of the presenters: First of all, we had an amazing event. The energy was great and we had one of our best attended events -- about 225 people, but I think we lost count in the rush at the door. We had an amazing variety of presenters who all had unique things to talk about. Prior to the event, we had several articles written, which helped draw a crowd that had previously been unaware of the event in our city. Our first presenter, Helen Hoffelt, had this to say about her photography: "For us to rise, we have to let go. What weighs us down has to be left behind. Sometimes, what is left behind can be compassionately incorporated into who we are. As we fly, we create a new sense ourselves. We need to pay attention to what our lives teach us. When we do that I believe we all can fly." Cyrus Fire, an artist, said: "It was a one of the most exciting nights of my life." He suggests PKN organizers work with presenters hands-on ahead of the event (for example, helping presenters with breathing techniques). Zaineb Alani presented her work as an Iraqi poet. Her poetry was amazing and very moving. She says that PechaKucha was "a unique opportunity to voice an insight into the 'other side' in a setting that greatly enhanced the content of my delivery." Matt Meindl talked about his film Digital Underpants: "It's a manic stop-motion animated collage made from hundreds of real teenage love notes." On PKN, he "liked the diverse presentations but also the general atmosphere that made it OK to be honest, vulnerable, creative, and silly." Other presenters included: Matt Carbone, an architectural photographer; Matt Meindl, a filmmaker who presented 20 short film clips; Artie Isaac who talked about the democratization of public speaking and his new website SpeakerSite; Reza Reyazi, an urban planner speaking about Columbus' oldest neighborhood Franklinton; Walker Evans, who spoke about his work on the site ColumbusUnderground; artist John Sherman Lathram III, who is working on a new book about body modification; Corey Aumiller, an artist who presented "20 Irrational Fears"; and Kristy Yosick, a master chocolatier. The press coverage mentioned appeared in Columbus Alive and Metromix. PKN Columbus Vol. 9 is set for May 21. Below, a few images from Vol. 8.

PKN Raleigh + Inspire Japan
Raleigh will take part in the Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan event on April 16, with the city's Vol. 7 happening at Isaac Hunter's Oak City Tavern from 17:30 -- the list of presenters is currently listed on PKN Raleigh's local website, and it includes a representative from Raleigh's NC Japan Center. The poster was designed by Cyn Mallard (Cynergie Studio)
Poster for PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 4
PechaKucha Night in Springfield, MO Vol. 4 happens tomorrow night (September 23) at RuBert Studio -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. Below, more details on the event courtesy of organizer Amanda Taylor. The poster was designed by Alex Sanders.PechaKucha Night Vol. 4, “There’s No Place Like Home: Joplin Benefit” will be coming to RuBert Studio (1841 E. Bergman St. Springfield, Missouri) on Friday, September 23. AIA Springfield and PechaKucha Night Springfield have come together once again, this time to raise money for Joplin Relief. Pam and Russ RuBert have kindly opened their studio doors for the evening, which makes for a unique space to celebrate Springfield’s creative scene. Doors open at 6:30pm and presentations begin at 7pm. The theme for PechaKucha Night Vol. 4 will not necessarily reflect the presentations, it’s simply advertising the evening as a fundraising event. Presenters have 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to present their material which makes for 6 minutes and 40 seconds of edifying entertainment. Despite the stuffy “presentation” moniker, PechaKucha’s atmosphere is casual and lax. The idea is to come away from the event with a greater perspective and richer ideas, but most importantly, to enjoy oneself in the process. We are asking for a minimum $5 donation that will go to AIA Springfield for their masterplanning services to help Joplin rebuild smarter. This event is entirely volunteer-based and sponsor funded. Poster designed by Alex Sanders. Contact Amanda Snelson with any questions. This event is brought to you by AIA Springfield and sponsored by Pam and Russ RuBert.
Developer Education Table Talks: Powered by PechaKucha
Software development is one of the fastest growing industries in the country, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting a 30% increase in jobs by 2020, more than double the average growth rate for all occupations. We’ve certainly seen an explosion in Chicago’s tech scene over the past several years, and along with this goes the issue of education. Who is going to train this next wave of developers, and what are the best teaching tools? How can we use mentorship to promote continued learning and improvement internally, and ensure current devs stay on top of the latest technologies and innovations? How will we reach groups typically under-represented in the dev world, like lower income individuals, certain ethnic minorities, and women? At Table XI we’ve been thinking a lot about the role of education and mentorship in this community. On Thursday, June 13, for our June Table Talks: Developer Education, we’ll be hearing PechaKucha-style presentations from some of Chicago’s best: Ray Hightower, organizer of ChicagoRuby and WindyCityRails - @rayhightower Paul Pagel, CEO and Co-founder of 8th Light - @paulwpagel Vince Cabansag, Director of Operations at The Starter League - @vcabansag Michael D. Hall, Founder of UGtastic - @just3ws Mike Busch, Instructor at Dev Bootcamp - @mikelikesbikes Isaac Sanders, Table XI development intern and mentor at Dev Bootcamp - @isaacsanders Stay tuned for these presentations on this channel, and in the meantime follow along at #TableTalks.
What's the Big Idea?!
Where do good ideas come from? What does a bad idea looks like? How can you turn an idea into reality? In today's Presentation of the Day, "What's the Big Idea?!" (from PKN Louisville Vol. 10) Will Russell goes into detail on his wacky, weird, and wonderful ideas (failures and successes) such as international Big Lebowski gathering Lebowski Fest, retail store and unoffical fanclub for the city WHY Louisville, Pee Wee Over Louisville, and his failed attempt to create a Kentucky Rushmore (Muhammad Ali, Colonel Sanders, Abraham Lincoln, and Triple Crown winning racehorse Secretariat were to be included).
Poster for PKN Knoxville Vol. 11
Daniel Jones is a talented designer employed at Sanders Pace Architecture and he just to happens to be a one of Knoxville's PKN event Organizers. USGBC is partnering with PKN to offer new presenters and encourage a new crowd to attend the event. This was kept in mind as an important piece of info for the poster to communicate. From the artisit - "The inspiration for this design was observing my son Jack and how freely and unbiased he observes and interacts with the world around him - and how watching a pechakucha presentation (at least a good one anyway) allows the viewer a moment be free to enjoy something completely new and unexpected." -Daniel Jones
