A Word from Vanessa

We're posting the following message we received from PechaKucha Night in Christchurch organizer Vanessa Coxhead, to reassure any friends or family who have been trying to get in touch with her. We were certainly relieved to hear that she was safe and sound.Thanks for all the kind messages via email over the past 24 hours... it's been a very surreal experience but Jessica and I are safe. As are the people we work with. I haven't heard from Richard yet but I hope he is fine with his family... Richard... let us know when you can. At this stage there's not too much that we can do. We are staying with family, staying aware and keeping occupied as much as we can waiting for notification of anything we can do once search and rescue have completed the task at hand. We were in the central city when the quake hit and got out of there as soon as we could. We will keep people updated... Facebook has been a great tool for communicating en masse that so feel free to 'friend' me! You'll be seeing the news coverage and the wonderful work that many brave people are doing in the city so let's hope that we receive positive news as the day starts to end. This is probably the best way to keep updated on the situation. Any help that can be offered in due course will be greatly accepted so we'll keep in touch. For now, communication is the key so let's do what we're good at! Lots of love Vanessa, Jess and all those you know in Christchurch Update: And please see this post for info on where you can send donations for aid and reconstruction efforts in Christchurch.

The Work of Crofton & Benjamin Architects, Electronic Artists Eternity Brothers, and a Special PKN for Ekaterinburg

Presentations Leon Conradie is an experienced architectural academic, who is doing his Masters Research on "The Work of Crofton & Benjamin Architects: 1955 -1964." Crofton & Benjamin Architects were prolific in the 50s and 60s on beachfront developments, and have designed many iconic Durban buildings, each with an Art Deco style. In his presentation (from PKN Durban Vol. 7), Leon gives us a tour of these buildings, and points out their unique quirks. Pavel Fila is an IT specialist, programmer, and also organiser of the "Šramlfest" festival. In his presentation (in Czech, from PKN Znojmo Vol. 1), he talks about Eternity Brothers, a local group of VJs and electronic artists, and shares some of their work. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster for the upcoming PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 6 (pictured above), which will be part of the The Second Ural Industrial Biennale of Contemporary Art, an important event on the city's cultural agenda. It will also be the first time a PKN in Ekaterinburg is themed, with all presentations tied to art -- below, more details on the event:This time PechaKucha Night Ekaterinburg invites everyone to think about contemporary art during the parallel program of The Second Ural Industrial Biennale of Contemporary art. We wonder if there is some place for modern art in modern person`s life? You can tell there about your personal experience, projects, interests or ideas in the field of modern art. We try to find the answer if it is necessary to be an artist to make art? Do you make art? Does your art have a target? What do you what from contemporary art as a consumer? How are your projects connected with art? Photos Take a look at last week's PKN Singapore Vol. 5 courtesy of this photo gallery [Facebook]. As organizer Jon Siegel tells us, it was a fantastic event with a great turnout (close to 300) and a terrific lineup of presenters. Above, a look at part of the crowd, and presenter Jon "Yongfook" Cockle.  Calendar We kick off the week with tonight's (September 10) PKN Muscat Vol. 2, and tomorrow you can catch Toronto's Vol. 17.

Albany, Vol 2. Work

Work it out, whistle while you work, putting in a good days work, working on it, that works… Work is such an important aspect of our daily lives and our common interactions.  We all work in different ways; we all perceive work as something different.  The line cook that opens their knife bag at 5:00pm is working just as the contactor that straps on their steel toed boots at 5:00am. We would like to welcome residents of Albany as well as people from all around the Bay Area to ‘Pecha Kucha in Albany, Volume 2’ and as you may have already deciphered, the theme is ‘Work’.  This event is free and will take place at the Albany Community Center on October 25th at 6:30pm.  We have very interesting presenters that range from Correctional officers to Urban Framers all centered around the theme of ‘Work’. The theme of work is one that is so broad we will never be able to cover its entirety in a month much less a few short hours.  That being said, this will be an opportunity for people to see the world through a lens that isn’t always considered, an opportunity to wear different hats for 6 minutes at a time.  If you are unfamiliar with the Pecha Kucha format here is a quick explanation; a presenter uses slides that change every 20 seconds, a total of 20 slides will make up the entire presentation.  Ideally the presenter will seamlessly transition between slides and take the audience along for an informative and intriguing journey of exploration.  To work is to be; we don’t mean that everyone has to have a job but we mean to state that everyone should have something that motivates them.  This definition is not set in stone but rather malleable and ever-changing.  The evolution of tasks and dedication may not always define you but most certainly an individual must define what they consider work. “Let the beauty of what you love be what you do” -Rumi

My 6 minutes and 40 seconds at PechaKucha!

          A beautiful testimonial by PechaKucha presenter Sonia Kar  So it began! The moment had come for me to take the stage. Rodrigo, one of the enthusiastic hosts of the evening, had started giving a grand introduction about what I was going to speak about in the next 6 minutes and 40 seconds on PechaKucha Maastricht Vol 31, being held at the prestigious Sint Janskerk. What would I say? Would I be able to keep pace with the 20 seconds timer on each slide or would I just make a mess of it? Would I be able to convey my story effectively? Actually all these questions crossed my mind some two months ago when I heard about PechaKucha 20X20 presentation format using picture slides. Bit intimidating that one has to convey adequately in 20 slides with a 20 sec/slide speed, but the concept was so terrific that I had to give it a try. My application as a guest speaker took some screening considering PechaKucha was celebrating the 40th anniversary of Maastricht University. However I handled the screening questions with the same passion as I would be doing while speaking (I in fact felt I was already on stage). To my joy, I was informed that the very talented PechaKucha team had selected me. Next came the daunting task of preparing the slides – setting my story right, hunting for the appropriate pictures for the slides. That actually was not as difficult as I thought it would be. Though it called for some iterations, lots of “gentle” reminders and patience from PechaKucha team members especially Zhen (thank you for bearing with all the stupid questions which came your way). However, the issues were faced when I thought of practising. Just two days left for the event, I was making a mess. I remember the first time I practised – the entire 20 slides (each with 20 seconds) were over and I had not finished half of my story! I was always gifted with this art of talking a lot and not being precise. That would definitely be put to the test now. So then came the phase of cutting it short and making it just fit within 20 seconds. The next time I practised, I finished the story when I was in slide 10! The pressure of finishing the story was high so I missed mentioning half of the points which I had to. With some iterations I was ultimately there. On the D-day, when we reached Sint Janskerk - it was a packed house. The stage was set and rows of chairs were placed perfectly surrounding the stage. There were at least 300 people. I was trying to find familiar faces (as that would boost my confidence– human psychology as talking to known people is less of a stress than addressing unknown people) but there were hardly any. Then came the reassuring words from my husband – “You have spoken at a gathering of 100 people before. Speaking to 100 people and 300 people will feel the same”. Feeling a bit relaxed by his remark, I went and chose a comfortable spot. What I loved the most was the concept of starting with the programme at 20:20. All the speakers were outstanding, the topics and their stories were thought-provoking. There were a lot of ideas and energies which were brought in. The audience (I being a part of it too) was completely enlightened and very enthusiastic. The more I watched the speakers, the more tensed I became. It was already intimidating to match the standards set by the speakers. But I was banking on the audience, if I falter or forget something they will clap and cheer me for that too :) Then came my turn. Rodrigo announced my name and yes, I was on stage. What was playing in my mind in the first two seconds – “Wow, that’s a lot of people looking at me, how do I engage with them? Oops, watch your posture, where are your hands, oh no, I have a microphone, what were the first lines?  Ah forget it, just be yourself”.  (Yeah, mind is faster than light, all this I thought in two seconds) And that’s what happened for the next 6 minutes 40 seconds – I was myself. I spoke about how we had come up with HomeHandi, an online platform which connects passionate cooks to food lovers like us and provides healthy home cooked food options. The most interesting part of the talk was when I started speaking about our learnings. I could feel an immediate connection with the audience. The one on how we could empower most of the cooks who were women homemakers by boosting their self-confidence and making them financially independent was appreciated by everyone. By the time I spoke about how we realised that people from various cultures unite or bond together over food, I was completely at ease. “Food is a universal language and we see it as an enabler to connect people from various countries i.e. expats, students and locals together. That is exactly what we saw happening in our flagship event – International Food Festival held in Maastricht. Why not make Maastricht city as one of the pioneers in forming a culturally inclusive community?” While saying all this,  it really did not hit me that I was at this grand location or event. I felt as if it was a normal chit-chat which I was having with a group of friends of mine (PechaKucha actually signifies chit-chat).  I spoke without any inhibitions and my passion controlled my speech. I enjoyed thoroughly those 6 minutes and 40 seconds which came my way. At the end of the event I was approached by many familiar faces – familiar as I had seen them from the podium so now they were no more unfamiliar to me. I felt that PechaKucha gave me that platform to bring out the confidence in me, helped me to approach and interact with so many people, gave me the opportunity to enlighten myself. The informal way of story-telling with pictures is something very unique and very heart warming. Thank you PechaKucha for my 6 minutes and 40 seconds :)   By Sonia Kar, HomeHandi
