Hidden Spaces In Toronto & A Guide To The Humble Mason Jar [PechaKucha]

In today’s stroll through the PechaKucha archive we uncover a presentation on the secret urban haunts of the Ontario, Canada capital.

Presentations
Kathy Toth is an art photographer, and in her presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 17) she shares a recent photography project about hidden spaces in the city where bridges, drains, and drainage channels become art galleries for graffiti, skate parks for teens. These are all sorts of wonderful things to a small group of people who make creative uses of spaces that are hidden from the common eye.

Herein (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 3) lies the unofficial and unauthorized history of the mason jar, produced by Craig Langlois in the form of drawings.

Posters
Today on the Tumblr blog we feature the flyer image for this month’s PKN Tokyo Vol. 96, which is better known as our big Tokyo Designers Week edition. Happening on October 31 at the TDW grounds (Meiji-Jingu Gaien) in a venue that can hold up to 1200, it will be one of the bigger PKNs we’ve had in Tokyo. You’ll find more details on our event page and on our Facebook event page, and every day we are highlighting presenters on our PechaKucha Tokyo page on Facebook.

Videos
Today we share a short video that offers up a look at Zelezny Brod‘s recent first PKN, and with PKN Orlando Vol. 7 just around the corner (October 26), here’s a video interview with that city’s organizer, Eddie Selover.

Calendar
Here are the five events on the schedule for tonight (October 18): PKN Townsville Vol. 1, PKN Edinburgh Vol. 20, PKN Leeds Vol. 14, PKN Wakefield Vol. 7, PKN Panama Vol. 11, and PKN Edmonton Vol. 14. Tomorrow we have the following three events, two of them in Japan: PKN Nishinomiya Vol. 14, PKN Adelaide Vol. 4, and PKN Hakata Vol. 4.
