Presentations
Dwayne Butcher is an artist and curator, and in this presentation (from PKN Memphis Vol. 1) he talks about how he started producing art — what inspired him to start — and shares works that he has made and that has inspired him.

In this presentation (in Japanese, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 94), Hiroshi Miyazaki (of Aquent) talks about the competition that was held for his company to produce a calendar, and goes through the art work that made the cut.

Posters
Since our last regular post two weeks ago, we have amassed quite a collection of posters, and we’ll be gradually sharing a few each day throughout the coming week. Today, we’ve added the following to the Tumblr blog:  PKN Vancouver Vol. 23 (pictured above), PKN San Antonio Vol. 7 (see this preview piece for more info), this past May’s PKN Singapore Vol. 4, and last week’s big special edition PKN in Chicago, at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Video
PKN St. Louis organizer Jeannette Thompson sent us this link for a video report on the city’s latest PKN, produced in conjunction with the local PBS affiliate.

Calendar
Following these last few summer week, the PechaKucha Night calendar is starting to fill up again, and although there are no PKNs planned for tonight or tomorrow, you can look to Wednesday (August 22) for PKN Cairns Vol. 5 and PKN Durban Vol. 8.
