Local Heroes

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: 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!

In "Beyond Eating Local: Using History as a Guide to a New Food Security" from PKN Honolulu Vol. 18, Josh shows us how the Hawaiians can once again utilise their lush volcanic farmland to return themselves to a sustainable, self-sufficient agricultural society.

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.

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!
