Experiencing Artsweek & Toronto’s Largest Scavenger Hunt [PechaKucha]

In today's stroll through the PechaKucha archives we discover a presentation on a fun community activity in Canada's biggest city.

Robert Fishbone had an amazing experience taking part in Artsweek — like learning how Bobby McFerrin does his vocal gymnastics — and in this lively presentation (from PKN Salt Lake City Vol. 8), you’ll get to experience part of it too.

Rafi Ghanaghounian of Keep Six Exhibits shares his fun project called “Blocks,” Toronto’s largest scavenger hunt. Originally, the project was just between him and his son, but after doing this presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 14), he is now turning into an actual public event.

Barcelona always comes up with great posters for its events, and here’s another great example — designed by LoSiento — for the city’s upcoming Vol. 17. You’ll of course find more great posters on our Tumblr Blog.

PKN Orlando organizer Eddie Selover has been doing an amazing job with his series — to a point that he was awarded a Silver Brick — and earlier this month he participated in a TEDx event in Orlando, and spoke about his experience with PechaKucha, in a talk entitled “How PechaKucha Changed My Life.”

Here’s what’s on tonight (October 30): PKN Eureka (Montana) Vol. 1, PKN Grand Rapids Vol. 5, PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 27, and PKN Pittsfield Vol. 4. Tomorrow night we celebrate Tokyo Designers Week with our big PKN — aka PKN Tokyo Vol. 96 — at the Meiji-Jingu Gaien grounds. You’ll also find these three events: PKN Derby Vol. 7, PKN Mikkeli Vol. 1, and PKN Montevideo Vol. 8.
