In today’s stroll through the PechaKucha archives we uncover a presentation on the photographic history of a nation taken one day out of each year.
Don Kratzer has lived in Japan for 20 years, and following the PK 20×20 format, he uses his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95) to share what he’s been up to all this time using one image for each year.
In her presentation (in Czech, from PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2), Zofia Drut talks about her public and street art activities, that have been held in elevators, buses, markets, and any other public venue she’s been able to use.
We have two new posters to share today on the Tumblr blog, starting with PKN Banja Luka Vol. 6, pictured above — the event was held just over a week ago. The other addition is a second poster for the upcoming PKN Mendoza Vol. 6 — see the lovely “moustache” edition we shared last month.
We are often contacted by teachers and professors from around the world who are interested in using the PechaKucha format in their classes, and here’s a great example of its use at the College of Charleston, and one that was inspired by the local PKN series.
Professor Jeanette Guinn says PechaKucha in an integral part of her course, Understanding Creativity. “The PechaKucha concept stretches students to be creative and expand their writing and public speaking skills,” she says. “You just can’t achieve that with a paper and a test.”
