Large wide tenugui 01


Japanese designer NanaAkua loves her hometown of Matsumoto, so much so that she has made it one of her missions to contribute to the city's tourism programs -- from assuring a multi-lingual website for the area's tourist board to various activities. She also loves the traditional -- and extremely versatile -- cloth tenugui, and during her presentation at Pecha Kucha Night Vol. 58 in Tokyo, she shared with the audience a few of those uses, which you can see below. Another great idea, and one used to promote the city of Matsumoto, was the following tenugui, printed with a boardgame pattern she designed, based on sights found in the area. Fans of the tenugui should also note that PKN Tokyo ground zero -- otherwise known as SuperDeluxe -- sells its own version, featuring imagery from the space's own microbrew, Tokyo Ale.

PKN Sevilla Vol. 8

Sevilla recently hosted its eighth PechaKucha Night, and organizer Pablo Sendra Fernandez sends in the following report on what appears to have been another terrific showing. Another great night for PechaKucha Sevilla. This time, the event took place in a sala WAM, a bar where several cultural events take place. The sponsorship of the Andalusian Youth Institute, the Cultural Centre of the University of Seville and the Andalusian Centre of Contemporary Art helped us in having a luxury night with free drinks, free food, the best Spanish ham and other delicatessen. After projecting the “Tokyo Calling” video from Astrid and Mark, we projected a video of a summary of all the PechaKucha Sevilla events (will be posted soon on the web) that introduced the concept of PechaKucha to those few that still don’t know what is PechaKucha in Sevilla. After this introduction, Raquel Dominguez explained how a degenerative illness that made her a handicapped person has actually brought out all the best qualities that she has: Raquel has been several times champion of Spain swimming and running and is one of the best handicapped sportswoman in the world. Currently, she is working in the radio and giving talks to companies in order to introduce handicapped people in the working life. The second speaker was Rafael Contreras, who explained the structure of his company. After that, Salud López, winner of the “Creative Award” in Andalusia, explained her art installation. Then, the young architecture practice “LosdelDesierto” explained their concept of “hardcore architecture.” Just before the break, the director of the company “Alma Natura” explained how they have created a great company of rural tourism in a small village of no more than 1,000 inhabitants. During the break, people enjoyed the music, the free drinks and the best Spanish ham and food. Like in all PechaKucha events, people use the break to make contacts and exchange ideas. After the break, the young architecture practice “baum arquitectura” explained their research about the contemporary Chinese city. After them, Misael Rodriguez explained his work as a cultural manager in China and Holland. The young industrial designer Granada Barrero explained how all the elements of the everyday life are designed by people like her. Then, the architect Ignacio Martinez de Simone explained the worldwide company that he has created all around the world. To finish the event, we chose a well-known humorist from Spanish TV who made the entire public laugh. The night continued after that. I left the bar at 4.30 a.m. and it was still crowded… I hope you all enjoyed the event. Looking forward to Vol. 9 around February or March 2010!!!

PKN Kyiv Vol. 7

Kyiv took part in the Global Cities Week with its PechaKucha Night Vol. 7, and you'll find a few photos from the event as well as a report in this blog post (here's a Google Translate version of it). You'll also find the list of presenters on the event page. Here are a few words from organizer Timofey Yevgrashyn:So far it was almost the biggest number of people who attended our events, and it was definitely because of the "city" topic -- there are so many people who like their city and want to know more about it and of course about PechaKucha ;-) We got 10 interesting speakers who were passionate about their topics and helped us see the history, architecture, learn about our subway, tourism and, of course, about people who live in our city.


Vol 01 Summary

In October we had our first PechaKucha Night here in Fairbanks! It was a fun evening learning about a variety of topics. We heard from John Schauer, presenting his recent joint endeavor, a project called, 49 Faces of Alaskan Adventure. You can find out more about it here: We learned the rules of creating a spectacular Halloween costume and why it has to be homemade from Corey DiRutigliano. We took a virtual architecture tour of Japan with Janet Matheson and her wonderful photos from her recent trip. Kristen Timm gave us an entertaining and enlightening view into the history of Tourism. Randall Rozier gave us a glimpse into our caffiene nation and how coffee has influenced us in more ways than you might realize. Brittany Jackson presented on how important the design of public restrooms is to our public spaces and how the design of them is so varied across the globe. Finally, I gave a brief history of the banjo, it's not just a bluegrass instrument.  We had a good size crowd that is now more enlightened and inspired and ready for our next PechaKucha Night!

Space Tourism: Hospitality or Adventure Industry?

Space. The final frontier. For zero-gravity ping-pong-ball parties.  Maryam Nabavi, an Innovation Strategist at Idea Couture, talks about her strategy for the future of commerical space (i.e. Virgin Galactic) as a service industry. If you ever thought about living in space, then small bathrooms, carbon-dehydrated food, and uncomfortable sleeping arrangements are probably not what you had in mind. However, in "Space Tourism: Hospitality or Adventure Industry?" from PKN Toronto Vol. 27, we learn that Nabavi redesigned the experience to have humans at the center of the problem so that it can be an enjoyable and memorable experience for anyone no matter their financial or physical situation.
