Poster for PKN Bali Vol. 2
PechaKucha Night returns to Bali next month (August 13) for a second edition, as part of the "Sanur Village Festival." Here's a look at the beautiful illustrated poster for the event.
As a follow-up to our previous post on Budapest's recent and upcoming PKNs, organizer Attila Bujdoso sends us the following on one of the stand-out presentations from that city's Vol. 16. It featured Eszter Pasztor talking about her "Bodvalenke - Fresco Village" project. This very special project focuses on one of Hungary's most deprived ghetto villages. Bódvalenke is a remote, small village in North-Eastern Hungary. The village -- which has high unemployment rate and is harmed by social segregation -- is inhabited by many gypsies. Led by a Miskolc painter, János Horváth, gypsy painters will decorate the walls of the houses of the village with murals. The murals will present the life, legends, dreams, sorrows and desires of the Gypsy. In the first phase they have already painted the walls of some 15-17 houses. Thus they create a communal art work and wish to open up this tiny remote village for tourists. Tourism and attention would hopefully help turn this village and could bring work opportunities and a better life circumstances to the villagers. You can see a few photos of Pasztor presenting here, and also learn more at this website for the project in question.
Flyer for PKN Bali Vol. 6
Bali is readying things for its upcoming PechaKucha Night Vol. 6, set to take place August 6 as part of the Sanur Village Festival. We've included some details about the festival, sent to us from PKN Bali organizer Arief Budiman. Sanur Village Festival set for August 4 – 8, 2010 taking place at Segara Ayu beach and Inna Grand Bali Beach Sanur. “Saha Nuhur” is preferred for this year’s theme of the festival that literally means “the passion to visit a holy place” and later become the name of “Sanur”. With its popularity we believe that Sanur Village Festival will attract more visitors to the island of Bali this year and more importantly to map this event in the world of tourism calendar. This year, Sanur Village Festival agenda are classic highlights of Bazaar & Food Festival, Jazz Festival, and 6th Sanur Golf Tournament as well as our most anticipated Street Parade. The International Kite Festival and Jukung Festival would definitely sensate the spectators with their artistic creations and breathtaking races. There will be another rejuvenate of our program, with the relocation of our Mass Yoga program to a serene Yoga Village. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Replant, & Recovery (5R) (Action! is an important part of Sanur Village Festival 2010 . It aims to encourage the concrete actions of the people of Bali as well as all of the citizens of the earth to help extend the age of the earth. Reduce, reuse, recycle, plant back, and restore are the five simple activities which could bring miracle on earth if carried out continuously and simultaneously. Activities undertaken include tree planting neem Intaran / neem (Azaridachta indica); the planting of coral reefs; the release of hatchlings (young turtles); beach clean ups activities, and environmental exhibitions.

The Fear of Sharks, Learning from Villains, and the Making of a PKN in Cagliari
Presentations We all have irrational fears, and for quite a few, sharks top the list of that which is most feared. In this presentation (from PKN Louisville Vol. 3), Paul Sirek goes beyond the Jaws of Spielberg, and reveals the true nature of these creatures. And what can we learn from the most villainous villains of them all? In his presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 10), Nicolas Vargas takes a stab at listing 10 super villains, and explains the important lessons he has learned from their mistakes. Posters We end the week with a few new posters on the Tumblr blog, including the one pictured above, for a special edition PKN happening in Chicago on July 19, as well as posters for PKN Las Palmas Vol. 7, and for PKN Erlangen Vol. 3 and 5. Here's more on that special event in Chicago: WHEN LESS IS MORE... In association with the Society of Architectural Historians, PechaKucha Night Chicago heads for a summer road trip to the Louis Sullivan designed Charnley House in Chicago's Gold Coast. An intimate venue to be sure (so we wont get three hundred in there). Get tickets early and enjoy this amazing Chicago treasure - for one night only - invaded by PechaKucha Night. All ages show. Information at Facebook. The officially fantastic poster of this Volume is designed by Akemi Hong for the SAH. And watch out for another downtown extra Volume in mid August. Also in a very cool venue... Video It's been a week of videos, and so why not end it with another one, this time covering the recent PKN Cagliari Vol. 3, both the event itself and behind-the-scenes.

Acupuncture Architecture, Urban Villages
In acupuncture, when putting a needle in just the right place, one can drain the tension from the entire body. Acupuncture architecture serves a similar need. Putting a single school in the middle of a village may seem insignificant when compared with the greater area it exists within, but certainly helps the community it's surrounded by. This edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Stockholm Vol. 21) features international architect Filipe Balestra speaking on the work he's done to alleviate the architectural stress found in the slums (or, as he suggests they be called: urban villages) of Brazil and India. Filipe's process involves gradually implementing sturdy, cheap, simply-designed housing constructs of various types. Rather than uprooting entire communities (as is common in large-scale urban reconstruction projects) only the most poorly-constructed shacks are chosen to be replaced with a more permanent edifice. Each family has the opportunity to choose from various permutations of the 3-floor framework and participate in their current shanty's demolition as well as their new domicile's fabrication. By avoiding imposition wherever possible, and working in tandem with existing residents and local governments to legitimize these structures, Filipe's projects have done some real good.
