Adopting A Racing Dog & Moving To The Shakespeare Beat

Adopting A Racing Dog & Moving To The Shakespeare Beat
Design

In today's stroll through the PechaKucha archive we discover a presentation on how to make a retired greyhound into a pet.

Presentations
Another fantastic kids presentation from Derby (Vol. 5), this time with Freya talking about her dog Alfie, a retired racing greyhound. If this doesn’t convince you that adopting a retired racing dog is a good idea, we don’t know what will.

Can you move to the Shakespeare beat? Ben Spiller will make sure that you do in his presentation (from PKN Derby Vol. 6), before introducing you to the Shakespeare workout.

Some presentations see a person sharing their work, and some see the presenter sharing what inspires him or her. Here (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 3), Richard Britell does the latter, sharing finds from Pinterest.

This presentation (in French, from PKN Lyon Vol. 4) is about Alles Gut, a graphic design studio founded by Antoine Eckart and Francis Josserand. The idea was born from the desire of putting together their skills and their vision of design combining esthetic and function. They act in the field of print (ID, posters, editing), web design, and illustration.

And with these four presentations we hit a new milestone today, reaching 600 online presentations — or make that two, since our city count has just hit 580.

Events
We announced it a couple of weeks ago, but here’s a reminder that here in Tokyo, PechaKucha is teaming up with ArchiAid for a very special event next week (Thursday, November 22) at SuperDeluxe in Roppongi. This PechaKucha event will be jam-packed with an inspirational lineup of architects — including SANAA and Atelier Bow-Wow — who will present their ArchiAid-supported projects in Tohoku (northern Japan, the area most affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami), using the 20×20 format you know and love. You’ll find more event details and the full lineup of presenters on our Facebook event page and Inspire Japan site. Participants will also contribute books to be auctioned during the break, to raise funds. You can also support ArchiAid initiatives through the PechaKucha website — click on the big blue “A+” logo.

Photos
Tallinn had its Vol. 6 earlier this week, but here’s a photo gallery [Flickr] from the city’s Vol. 5, held back in September. You’ll find the list of presenters on the official event page.

Calendar
After a busy week, it’s a relatively quiet weekend, with two events scheduled for tonight (Friday, November 16) — PKN Aalen Vol. 12 and PKN Hamptons Vol. 2 — and then PKN Johannesburg Vol. 8 happening on Saturday.
