His talk will touch on the art of tapping, a rare technique left in the world. Instead of relying on an electric machine and a steel needle, Nunes makes his own tools and even his own ink when tattooing in this very rare ancient way.

Tokyo Local Food
Jess Mantell, Chris Berthelsen, and Jared Braiterman are always on the hunt for green spaces in urban environments -- in this case, Tokyo. In this presentation, they reveal ways and offer tips on how you can get your hands on some natural local food in the megalopolis. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 89, as part of Global Cities Week.
Hop hop hop! The Weimar co-op is going on well forward! With the new poster designed by Tereza we took off to catch the attention of potential speakers for the first PKN in Weimar. The response is good: we already gathered 6 confirmations from presenters which gives a nice minimum for a good PechaKucha to take place! This means there are only 6 more places left as we think to limit the evening to 12 presentations. At some special point we will also connect with Tokio during the Global Wave!
Pressemitteilung Lokale Helden
„Local Heroes – Lokale Helden“ Am 20.09.13 findet um 20:20 Uhr im 'Laden' (Trierer Straße 5) Weimars erste PECHA KUCHA NIGHT statt: ein Abend voller bunter Präsentationen im 20x20-Format. Ähnliche Veranstaltungen ereignen sich zeitgleich in über 100 weiteren Städten auf der ganzen Welt und verbinden sich zum globalen PECHA KUCHA Netzwerk. Alle Bürger_innen Weimars sind wärmsten eingeladen, selbst Teil dieses Netzwerks zu werden und mit einem eigenen Beitrag teilzunehmen. Hinter PECHA KUCHA (japanisch: wirres Geplauder, Stimmengewirr) steckt ein Präsentationsformat, eine Veranstaltungsreihe und ein globales Netzwerk. Vor 10 Jahren nahm es in Tokio seinen Anfang. Die Architekt_innen Astrid Klein und Mark Dytham hatten genug von langatmigen akademischen Vorträgen und öden Power-Point-Präsentationen. Für ihre eigenen Vorträge gaben sie sich also einen straffen Rahmen: 20 Power-Point-Folien, die im 20-SekundenRhytmus automatisch wechseln. 6 Minuten und 40 Sekunden Redezeit, nicht mehr. Diese Vorgabe ist streng, aber es ist die einzige. Darüberhinaus sprengt PECHA KUCHA jeden Rahmen. In den vergangenen Jahren verbreitete sich das Format auf der ganzen Welt und fand Anklang in Universitäten und auch in der Wirtschaft. Doch vor allem entstanden in über 600 Städten regelmäßige PECHA KUCHA NIGHTS. Es sind informelle Events in lockerer Atmosphäre, abseits vom akademischen oder professionellem Umfeld. Hier darf jede/r mitmachen und über das sprechen, was gefällt. Leidenschaften, Ideen, Projekte, Fotos, Selbstgemachtes... Alles ist möglich und erwünscht! Das Publikum darf sich über bunte, bildreiche, kurzweilige und amüsante Vorträge freuen. Das garantiert einen unterhaltsamen Abend voller neuer Eindrücke! PECHA KUCHA NIGHTS sind ehrenamtlich organisierte Veranstaltungen ohne kommerzielles Interesse. Die Veranstaltung wird vor allem von der Idee getragen, einen Ort und all seine Bewohner_innen in Kontakt zu bringen. Daher läuft die erste PECHA KUCHA NIGHT in Weimar am 20. September im 'Laden' (Trierer Straße 5, ab 20:20 Uhr) unter dem Oberthema 'Local Heroes – Lokale Helden'. Präsentationen können sich an diesem Thema orientieren, müssen sie aber nicht. Einzige Vorgabe ist eine Power-Point-Präsentation mit 20 Folien, die idealerweise mit Vortragstitel bis zum 17.09.13 per Mail beim Veranstaltungsteam eingereicht wird: firstname.lastname@example.org Alle Bürger_innen Weimars sind wärmstens eingeladen, sich zu beteiligen. Auch als interessiertes Publikums ist jede/r herzlich willkommen!PKN Weimar ist eine bilinguale Veranstaltung, also Vorträge auf Deutsch sowie auf English sind wilkommen!

Beyond Eating Local: Using History as a Guide to a New Food Security
How can Hawaii become the model agricultural society for the world? Josh Lanthier-Welch gives a great crash-course on the agricultural history of the Hawaiian islands. The islands went from feeding being self-sufficient to entirely reliant on imports.

Sabaidee! We've had a summer full of rest and relaxation over here in Vientiane, so we've hit the ground running with our next PKN popping up at Timeline Cafe on Thursday, September 15 from 6pm. We've got a host of exceptional peeps presenting at this event, so we hope to see you there Vientiane! But don't get us wrong, it hasn't been all poolside cocktails and working on our tans... Over the summer Vientiane-based Lao designer Manilla Chounlamountri, has created a truly awesome poster for our upcoming Vol. 4 event. Manilla is an illustrator at heart, and while she usually draws in black and white, she didn't shy away from punchy hues for this work. We think it sums up the PechaKucha vibe perfectly: captivating, interesting, bold, and cool with just a tad of quirk thrown in! Many, many thanks to Manilla for this wonderful work. We can't wait to plaster them all over town for the community to see!
