Archaeologist Liana Starida witnessed the fatal destruction of the buildings in the city of Heraklion, and believes the sprit and hope of these buildings can be brought back to life again through her photography. While portraying the human dimension of these disasters, her work shows a city that is losing its historic identity. Liana hopes to convey emotion by representing the first blow of destruction and capturing the piles of ruined houses, once full of the laughter, joy, and sorrows of forgotten souls.

In "Cancer doesn't ruin friendships - your attitude does" from PechaKucha Night Easton Vol. 5, Sarah Trimmer tells us how to be a good friend to someone with cancer - and somehow makes us laugh as we learn.

Margot Newcomb discusses her life as a rule follower. "I love a law, guideline, rule, commandment, and an instruction. In fact, the PechaKucha presentation appeals to me because it has specific instructions. I will discuss my love of a good edict and how it has led to over 20 years of volunteering." Margot talks about the organization she works with, Mobility Worldwide - Brazos Valley.

"My running career started in 2011 when I accidentally caught diabetes and so my first job was to buy a pair of running shoes and sign-up for a couch to 5k."
Stephen Ferguson talks to us about the challenge of running his first marathon and that this inspired him to continue running and be awarded the World Marathon Majors, a medal won by fewer people than have climbed Mount Everest.

We end this week of presentation highlights with Swedish artist Bella Rune, who walks us through the creation of an amazing outdoor "installation." Bella's magnetic personality and work drew people to a deserted airfield in Sweden for a day of filming. She describes her work as a "physical manifestation of human dreams and aspirations and the sad and touching consequences of when these fail to deliver." Bella is currently Artist in Residence at Tokyo WonderSite.
Runs Within - A Motif Project
Karyna Wallace tells a story by way of poetry; it revolves around the prints she developed under the theme "Vampires," as assigned by her professor. In her presentation (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 97) she offers up new interpretations: instead of drawing bats and bloody black cats, she analyses a vampire's needs and wants, and compares them to our human desires. She notices that the needs and wants that run within us take us through several stages of emotions throughout our lives. It is through this process that we grow spiritually and physically. We all experience these sensations, but the real question is: Can we reach our ultimate goal?
Joseph Tame Runs the 20x20
Last night's PKN Tokyo Vol. 100 was a night to remember, and not only were we so happy to have Joseph Tame take to the stage for a second time (watch his first presentation here) to update us on his latest projects, he shared with everyone a special run he had done just for our anniversary, in the shape of our dear "20x20" format! Don't believe it's real? Here's the actual run as recored by RunKeeper. And we'll soon have Joseph's presentation on the site for everyone to watch.
The Art of Running
Most runners are powered by performance drinks and nutritional energy bars, but Joseph Tame is powered by laughter, smiles, and a smidgen of confusion. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from our very special PKN Tokyo Vol. 100), Joseph shows us the art he has created through running. Using Nike's GPS run-tracking technology he runs routes on the map shaped like animals, shoes (as a promotion for Nike) and most recently spelled out "20x20" as a 10-year birthday gift to PechaKucha -- what a unique and wonderful surprise it was! It all started about 5 years ago when Joseph was accepted to run in the Tokyo Marathon (due to high demand about 1 in 8 applicants are selected) and, due to his fascination with technology, decided to live-stream his experience so that he may share it with those who couldn't participate. Later, with Japan's public television network NHK, Joseph ran the words "Ishinomaki (石巻)" in the city most seriously affected by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. He spoke to people living there, brought some smiles to their faces, and promoted awareness for the still-troubled region. After several additions to his outfit, a PKN Tokyo Vol. 72 presentation, thousands of kilometers, a multitude of smiles, and many drawings later he has become a sort of ambassador at the crossroads of running and tech. This Sunday the 24th at 8:30am JST, he'll be streaming his run through the Tokyo Marathon once again; you can show your support and check out more of his running-art on his website.
PechaKucha Baltimore Speaker Guidelines
Greetings! We'll assume you're reading this post because you're either bored, or, interested in speaking or what we tell our speakers when helping them prepare to speak at our events. Well, they're pretty simple. In fact, most of our speakers don't need these guidlines because we select speakers we or our friends, family and colleagues know, trust, and refer to us because they know and trust them. But, that's not a long-term, scalable approach so we came up with the following guidelines for speakers. You would be well-advised to watch as many presentations on the PechaKucha site to get an idea for how to deliver, what to put on your slides, etc. We would be happy to help you review your materials in advance. We do request that the final version of the material be in Powerpoint (preferred) or Keynote (acceptable), and sent to us by one week prior to the event. As a general rule, we aim to avoid creating any kind of explicit theme for the event. We're looking for uncurated ideas. Anything that is interesting and can promote broader thought and discussion. We have no agenda and prefer to keep the content of our gatherings intellectually, socially, politically and religiously accessible to all. We are looking for collaborators to join us in co-creating a space for possibility in which people can be free to express themselves and be open to thinking, learning and discussing. Presentations should have a point. If you have a story to tell, make sure there's a point to it. A take-away. Something for the audience to consider. You don't want to sit thru 20 "slides" of meaningless waffle, and neither does anyone else. We believe in free speech and that with free speech comes a personal responsibility to take community standards into account, i.e. it's in everyone's best interest to stay clear of any widely divisive agendas (political or other) as well as anything that a reasonable person would find blatantly offensive. Presenters should avoid promoting a "specific" thing, product or service. However, we are not opposed to the use of a thing, product, or service as an example of a "greater idea". In addition,we suggest the following content constraints:- No charity pleas.- No direct business promotion.- No deliberately inflammatory attacks.- Nothing that would land a presenter in trouble with Local, State, and/or Federal intelligence and law enforcement agencies if said out loud in a public space or in court (e.g., certain types of porn, certain types of threats, counterfeit money, etc.). Other than that...we are looking for a free exchange of ideas. We won't prejudge who has these ideas or where they will show up. People who have never presented before as well as anyone who has never presented in PK or Ignite formats are encouraged to attend a PK or watch some of the many PK presentations available at www.pechakucha.org or on YouTube before speaking. We want to involve anyone who has passion for an idea and can express it in a way to open-up learning and possibilities for an audience ... Constrained to 20 x 20. ;-) Hope to see you at one of our events! ^HG

"These buildings are not new, well-maintained, nor filled with life..." Brian Vanden Brink works as a professional architectural photographer in Rockand, but spends his free time photographing abandoned homes. In "Ruin" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 19, we see that he enjoys departing from his usual work environment and photographing hauntingly beautiful relics which serve as a metaphor for the transience in life and our inability to stop the passing of time.
"Running is as much a stress reliever for dogs as it is for humans." In Running Dog from PechaKucha Night Akron Vol. 3, Beverly Dillon shares how the #RunningDog program has helped dogs become more adoptable, how the program is helping dogs cope with their surroundings, and how the program is enriching the lives of the volunteer runners.

Presentation Ground Rules
Often times, meetings and the presentations that drive them, are boring, slow and rarely effective. With PechaKucha presentations you are in for insightful experiences and ideas from our #ldnont community. Here are some gentle reminders for presenters: Your final presentation must include 20 images. Notice that we say "images" and not "slides." Successful PechaKucha 20x20 presentations usually have images that complement what the speaker is saying, as opposed to a bunch of bullets and text on the slide. Each image will be displayed for exactly 20 seconds. The images automatically progress during the presentation. Speakers have no control over the advancement of the slides. We can help you with setting that up! Is this a sales thing? Absolutely not. In fact, PechaKucha Night is a nonprofit organization. We just love chitchat.No sales pitches. Is PechaKucha Night family-friendly? Yes! Each presentation is suitable for all ages. Please no inappropriate images or language. Remember, you will be presenting in a public space that is open to people of all ages. Audiences may include everyone from high school students to retired. If you wouldn’t say it in front of your Maman, don’t say it in front of your PechaKucha family. No political campaigning. No preaching. Deadline to submit presentation is always 7 days prior to the event. With all this focus on the mechanical aspect of your presentation it's easy to forget to really talk to your audience. Make contact, converse, be warm, and be human. It's one of the more intimate presentation styles and formats. Have fun!
