Presentations
Walking and taking in art sure sounds like a winning combination, and that’s just what you get with First Fridays Artswalk. Mary McGinnis uses her presentation (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 1) to explain the project.

Federico Fasce (of Urustar) talks about how he thinks games can change the world. He believes that games are the most important form of expression of this century. The presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 1) covers his experience with Privacy Traders, a game designed and developed for high school students. In Privacy Traders, through mechanical trade and exchange, the idea is to stimulate a reflection on the sharing of personal data, on the role of the internet and social networks, and on the importance to better understand the people to whom we entrust sensitive data every day.

Posters
We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with PKN Nantes Vol. 4 that you see above. Also added were posters for PKN St. Petersburg Vol. 21, as well as for PKN Dunedin Vol. 13 and 14.
