Creativity In The Mountains & Performance Art For Bookstore Awareness [PechaKucha]

Creativity In The Mountains & Performance Art For Bookstore Awareness [PechaKucha]

In today's stroll through the PechaKucha archives we uncover a presentation on how to create good public relations through performance art.

Selena Seifert is a practicing artist as well as being a trained arts educationalist. As we find out in her presentation (from PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 2), she is currently the director of Wild Valley Art Park, based in Blue Mountains.

Jian Guo Xiong Di is an independent curator, and in his presentation (in Chinese, from PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11) he covers the well-received “30 days of bookstore closings” project he produced last year. Why 30 days? Jian Guo explains that he would like to use this art performance to let people realize that these days so many bookstores are disappearing.

Today’s addition to the Tumblr blog is our flyer for tomorrow night’s PKN Tokyo Vol. 95 — it was designed by Luis Mendo, from a photo by Michael Holmes. You’ll find the list of presenters on the official event page.

Today we share a photo gallery [Flickr] for Toronto‘s recent Vol. 17, and the PK site will soon be hosting plenty of presentations from that evening. Above, a look at the crowd, and the participants in that night’s “PechaKucha Mix” improv presentation.

Here’s what’s on the schedule for tonight (September 25):  PKN Bowling Green Vol. 1, PKN Birmingham Vol. 6, PKN Huddersfield Vol. 6, PKN Lyon Vol. 4, and PKN Nantes Vol. 4. Tomorrow, on top of the aforementioned PKN Tokyo Vol. 95, you’ll find the following events: PKN Glasgow Vol. 10, PKN Skovde Vol. 9, PKN Lille Vol. 1, PKN Coventry Vol. 10, and PKN Providence Vol. 42.
