PKN Sofia Vol. 1

Pecha Kucha Night has been on a roll in terms of new cities, and one of the latest is Sofia, which held its first PKN at Club Solo on January 29. If you read Bulgarian, then you can read more about the event at the official site, but we thank organizer George Dutchev for sending us this report: It has just happened! The first Pecha Kucha Night in Sofia was a great success, gathering on January 29 more than 300 people from the creative fields in Bulgaria -- designers, architects, photographers, etc. Most of the 12 presenters surprised the audience with their animated, unexpectedly intensive, passionate presentations. The Pecha Kucha format has proved its reputation as creative energy "booster," leading to lively discussions during the "beer break," as well as later, in internet groups, blogs, and discussion boards. The topics? They varied from inspiration we could receive from the common things in life, to the role of rituals in our business, right up to the great samples of architectural masterpieces shown in the James Bond movies. Organizers from Sgrada.com -- a Bulgarian architecture and interior design focused web portal -- have already announced the date for next Pecha Kucha Night in Sofia: April 23. Below, a few photos from PKN Sofia Vol. 1, courtesy of George.

Watch Your Energy Usage, Take Up Politics, and Enjoy Some Green Urban Environments

Presentations Small changes in our lifestyle can have a rather large impact on energy consumption. In "Human Habitat: The Evolution of Efficiency" (from PKN Bozeman Vol. 2), Chris Dorsi goes through the KWH usage of various countries, to illustrate our energy-heavy habits and raise awareness. How important are politics to you? In "All Colors Together" (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), Renan Molin hopes to show everyone how important it is to participate in the world of politics, and uses the Obama campaign as a point of reference. Terapia Urbana is a technology-based company in Seville that uses nature to solve energy problems caused by buildings in cities where greenery is far from abundant. "More Green in the City" (in Spanish, from PKN Seville Vol. 12) includes a few of their projects, and you'll be introduced to a few vertical gardens -- for both the outside and interior of buildings -- as well as other "green" innovations. Posters Quite a few additions to our Tumblr blog today, including posters/flyers for PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1, PKN Ornskoldsvik Vol. 1, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 3 (above), and PKN Vancouver Vol. 22.  Photos Here are today's photo galleries, as well as a fun teaser video for PKN Barcelona Vol. 16, which took place this past Friday.

Last Saturday, January 28, PechaKucha Night Philadelphia took its show on the road, driving two hours north to mount the first PechaKucha Night in the city of Scranton. I thought the event went well for a city's first show: we had eight presenters who spoke to a standing-room-only house of 60 or so. Here's the story: A few months ago, as I was planning a weekend getaway with my brother, a thought occurred: why not plant a PechaKucha seed in a new city? I had already settled on a destination: Scranton, Pennsylvania, once a powerhouse industrial city, now home to a more diversified economy that includes several colleges and design shops. Sitting atop vast deposits of coal and iron ore, the city was the first in the United States to produce iron railroad rails, and the first to build electrically powered trolleys -- lending it the nickname the Electric City. Today, Scranton remains the sixth-largest city in the state of Pennsylvania. The next step was to seek help on the ground. I googled "Scranton and PechaKucha," and made contact with a librarian at the University of Scranton who had once delivered a 20x20 talk at a conference. She wasn't available to speak, but she helped me find a venue (the Vintage Theater and Cafe) and a co-organizer, Mandy Boyle, who works at one of Scranton's web design firms. Together, we rounded up a slate of eight speakers. In early January, we reached out to local media, and hit the jackpot. The Weekender, the leading local arts & entertainment weekly newspaper, put the upcoming PechaKucha Night on its cover. The piece, "What would you say in six minutes and 40 seconds?" came out on Wednesday, January 25. The following day, Scranton's daily newspaper, the Times-Tribune, ran a similar story: "High-speed PowerPoint presentations engage at Vintage Theater's PechaKucha Night." Armed with as much publicity as we could have hoped for, we opened the doors at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 28. People started streaming in, and by showtime, we had about 60 packed into the cafe. This was the lineup: “Life Lessons from the Gateway Cinema” by Mandy Boyle, SEO team lead at Solid Cactus “How to Slow Down Time” by “Welcome To Scranton” author Greg Halpin "#ScrantonMovieNames” by Michelle Davies, an NEPAblogs.org co-contributor “Stained Glass & the Passing of an Old World Art” by NEPAblogs.org founder Harold Jenkins “Restoring the Slope” by Leadership Lackawanna Class of 2012 member Gerard M. Hetman “Library Crimes & Misdemeanors” by newspaper librarian Brian Fulton “In Pursuit of the Light” by professional photographer Brent Pennington “Preparing America to Compete in the 21st-Century Global Economy” by technology trainer Michael J. Murphy The show itself went off well. I was quite proud of the presenters, all of whom did a fine job -- especially given that none of them had even ever seen a PechaKucha presentation before. Everyone at the cafe seemed to have a good time, and there were plenty of people afterward who asked about presenting at a future PKN. The day after the show, the Times-Tribune ran yet another story: "Scranton takes on global phenomenon with slideshow event." Links A few interesting posts and event reports from around the web. "Cultural Chit-Chat: Armenian and Turkish artists share ideas at joint Pecha Kucha in Istanbul" [Armenia Now] "Armenians, Turks hold Pecha Kucha Night in Istanbul (PHOTOS)" [News AM] "PechaKucha VI: 'Ladies, Pick Your Bull Carefully'” [Rivard Report] "PechaKucha: Speed Dating for Presenters" [The Better Presenter] Calendar After last week's very packed calendar, we're starting out slow this week, with PKN Calgary Vol. 12 tonight (May 28) and PKN Saint-Etienne Vol. 9 tomorrow night.

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

Sharing is Caring

I don't know how long it's been since I organized Fayetteville's last PechaKucha, but I sure as hell miss it. It happened one time here and never again. I mean, what is that! So here I am, maybe five years later (a range of time I USED TO feel was endless) and on a whole new frontier in life. No longer with the "stability" of a full time corporate job or the craziness of a ever-changing schedule, my business partner, Travis Bunn, and I have jumped into marketing head first and found out, the hard way, that it's not going to be easy. So if it's not going to be easy (and if it's not easy for any other business owner or any other magot working for "the man" out there), why not throw in some fun and learn something about friends and neighbors in a way that is fun, laid back and most time painless!  PechaKucha is making a comeback to Fayetteville and we've finally found a use for 100 Hay Street through this and through our friends at Revolutionary CoWorking in downtown, Fayetteville, NC! We'll see you there!
