Just 4 weeks after the events of 3/11 in Japan, the worldwide PechaKucha community came together to "Inspire Japan." Over $85,000 was raised for Architecture for Humanity and ArchiAid during a non-stop 24-hour PechaKucha event that circled the globe. The process of re-growth is ongoing, and presentations will continue to be added as we continue to inspire.

PKN Providence Vol. 4

PechaKucha Night was back in Providence last month for a fourth edition, and organizer Stephanie Gerson files this report: June 10th, 2009 witnessed the 4th PechaKucha night in Providence. Considering that PechaKucha is now alive and kicking in 216 cities worldwide, and that there are at most 31 days to the month, it’s almost inevitable that PK will be happening in at least two cities on any given night. So I’ve taken it upon myself to start telling the crowd which city/ies are hosting PK on the same night as us in Providence, and as it turns out, June 10th, 2009 also witnessed the 2nd PechaKucha Night in Dunedin! I also told the crowd that when we host PechaKucha on the same night as a city in our time zone, we should orchestrate some kind of tele-PechaKucha presentation, where two presenters in different cities give a presentation together via videochat. And it just so happens that our next PechaKucha on July 22nd coincides with the one in Boston… To give a taste of the presentations at Vol. 4, I’m gonna focus on the women -- both because their presentations were fantastic, and because we need more women up on stage. The first of three was Amy McDermott, a recruiter for Bridge Technical Solutions, a full-service IT staffing firm in East Greenwich. She presented “An Ongoing Study on IT Professionals, Rhode Island, and The Economy” -- a title that seemingly bears potential for a dry presentation, but resulted in anything but. By communicating statistics in the form of a rhyming story about ‘Little Rhody’ (local term of endearment for Rhode Island), Amy had folks laughing and engaged. We learned that the favorite thing about Rhode Island for a combined 26% of the local population was its networking and growth opportunities, along with community and culture. This made the Little Rhody cartoon in her images blush, as he certainly would have at seeing the turnout for PechaKucha in Providence! The second woman presenter of the evening was Alida Sun, an artist who works with nonprofits and advocacy groups. Alida was orphaned at a young age and spent most of adolescence in foster care, and her work largely focuses on the power of the human psyche to overcome atrocity. Her presentation elaborated the power of her own psyche to overcome atrocities endured in foster care, and her ability to channel trauma into creativity. Alida impressively took a heavy and personal topic, and articulated it with eloquence, passion, and even humor. She also wins the award for the most compelling title of the evening: “Cultivating the Heroic Imagination.” The third and final woman of the night was Arley-Rose Torsone, who works at AS220 as their in-house graphic designer and visualizer of Design Providence. Arley-Rose gave the first ever…..[drumroll please].…..interactive PechaKucha presentation in Providence! (And actually, the first interactive PK presentation I’ve ever seen.) It was called “I Need 20 Volunteers, Please,” and the title was literal. She first asked for 20 volunteers, and then for each slide -- which was an image of an outrageous haircut -- had a volunteer sit in a chair in front of her, and descended upon him/her with scissors, an electric razor, hairspray, gel, barrettes....the works. Essentially: 20 20-second haircuts. 'Twas absolutely amazing and I’m infinitely grateful to her for expanding the possibility space for what PechaKucha can be. Oh, and thanks to a kind audience member named Michelle Cournoyer Girasole, we got the whole thing on video. PKN Providence Vol. 5 takes place next week (July 22).

Taibola

Presenter: Ilya Kuzubov // the Creator of Taibola festival   Thereis quite a great amount of open-airs in Russia nowadays, but mostly they have entertaining and commercial character. In 2012 we decided to create a new project – “Taibola” festival. This project has volunteer and ideological character, where the aims which will be achieved by means of entertainment and involvement are following: To increase the interest of the citizens of Arkhangelsk Region to the culture and nature of their native land, as well as to make it more attractive for tourists.  To tell the participants and guests of the festival that self-organization and mutual aid is not a myth. Everyone can author, discover one’s new abilities and organize one’s personal cultural recreation.  To increase the level of ecological responsibility of the citizens by means of master-classes, lectures and explanatory works. In addition “Taibola” is an advocacy of healthy life style, a chance to learn handwork (this craft is especially valuable in time of offices and digital technology), a way to gain knowledge, an activator of personal growth and socio-cultural activity of participants. Objects of art made of sinker serve as one of the main peculiarities of the festival. Such wooden “sculptures” will underline natural beauty of the summer seashore of the White Sea. The festival program is based on several music-areas, cinema-area, master-classes which will be delivered simultaneously, festival tearoom (chill-out), trade fair (hand-made, souvenirs, etc.); outdoor games, intellectual games and street performances will also be organized there. Taibola is a path through taiga and also a neglected road in Arkhangelsk province. Metaphorically is it the way to inside of oneself and it will be in the open air on the seashore of the White Sea. We position “Taibola” as family all-age measures with free admission and abundantcultural program. As soon as guests leave, equipment and guests of another towns are sent back, the dismantling of utility structures will be started and as the result there will be only objects of art left on the seashore. At the same time the cleaning of festival territory will be commenced. Garbage will be gathered, sorted and removed by force of the festival.   Offical site: http://taibola.ru

Penticton Vol. 2

Penticton's second Pecha Kucha night was a great success!  We had a great turn out which, for a small city, attests to the appeal of the Pecha Kucha format. The presentations covered a diverse range of subjects by some really amazing people.  Austin Hawkins spoke of his personal journey and vision as an architect in a way that made you see what his heart truly desires from his own practice.  Michele Johnson shared the conception and successful launch of the language revitalization school for the Indigenous Okanagan People.  Peter Wolf gave an emotive and insightful journey of his meditative growth over 1 year constructing a house designed by Landform Architects.  Emily Elizabeth shared beautiful images that inspired the guests and explained some of the creative process involved in making her amazing beautiful jewelry pieces.   To wrap it up Vince Freeborn celebrated the first year anniversary of his email journal The High Scribe.  As always, Vince made the crowd laugh and the High Scribe experience was made complete with a sticker book of his 20 x 20 Pecha Kucha slides!  It was a brilliant idea and had our guests greedily grabbing and trading stickers to be the first to fill up their books!   Unfortunately I did not record the presentations correctly so once I reformat them I will post them for you to watch. We have already filled up the next roster for the January 2016 Pecha Kucha night!  That is how inspiring these nights are!   Check out Vince Freeborn's sticker book here.  If you like his drawings and want to see more go to www.thehighscribe.com and get subbed up!  In my opinion it is one of the best newsletters out there.

Designing Personal Sustainability

“When I first started, I became busy so quickly but I learned busy doesn't mean happy. I had no time to do the creative work I had been hired to do, let alone any personal projects, volunteer work or on some days even eat or sleep. People told me oh you're busy that's so great! but this kind of busy was making me miserable.” In Designing Personal Sustainability from PechaKucha Night Nanaimo’s 3rd Volume Speaker Lisa Hemingway is a collaborative creative consultant with a focus on sustainable design. Join her in "designing personal sustainability" as she talks us through her journey of applying principles of sustainability into her personal life. After all, when you're your own boss, your most important employee is yourself.
