Bringing Beer And Opera Together & How To Better Collaborate

In today's stroll through the PechaKucha archive we uncover a presentation about the similarities between the popular beverage and the high-brow performance art.

Mirella Amato from gives a presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 17) about the similarities between beer and opera, which has lead to her creating an event called Hopera, “an evening of craft beer and song.”

Today’s social, ecological, and business challenges are of such complexity that we cannot tackle them alone. We must engage the energy, ideas, and relationships of diverse participants to imagine, create and activate new possibilities. Designer Greg Judelman of The Moment, an innovation lab, presents (also from PKN Toronto Vol. 17) an approach to effective collaboration for system and organizational change.

Today’s addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster you see above for next week’s PKN Maribor Vol. 10. As with all previous Maribor posters, it was designed by Slovenian graphic designer Darjan Panic, and is entirely made up of paper art that is then photographed. You’ll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.

We have another video to share today, this time a teaser for the upcoming PKN San Jose (Costa Rica) Vol. 4, happening on November 28.
