Landscapes In Australia (And Beyond) & The Mississippi Goddam Play

In today's stroll through the PechaKucha archive we discover a presentation on how one author dramatized the famous Nina Simone song.

Presentations
Christian Fletcher is a landscape photographer who photographs not only the beautiful South West of Australia but is now expanding his portfolio to include the rest of Australia and locations around the world. His presentation (from PKN Dunsborough Vol. 5) covers a new photography collaboration, exhibition, and workshop that is coming up in the near future.

How did Jonathan Norton get out of writing a 20-page assignment? He promised a 100-page play instead, based on the Nina Simone song “Mississippi Goddam.” Here’s the story (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10).

As we find out in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 9), Kids-Coins is an educational project — held inside and outside school — that teaches children and teenagers the basics of financial literacy and entrepreneurship. Sergey Bidenko and Irina Zolotarevych — co-authors of the “Kids-Coins” projects — are experienced business coaches who have implemented 37 training and educational programs for adults and youth.

Posters
Today’s addition to the Tumblr blog is for Miami‘s upcoming very special Vol. 20 — we always love seeing a city reach that number — which doubles as a pre-Art Basel evening. It happens on December 1, and you’ll find the full list of presenters with links on the event page.

Photos
Mikkeli recently held its very first PKN (and two weeks later, its Vol. 2), and here’s the photo gallery [Flickr] to prove it — you’ll also find the full list of presenters with links on the event page.

Calendar
There are no PKNs tonight, but tomorrow night (November 20) you can look forward to the following two events: PKN Calgary Vol. 14 and PKN Coquitlam Vol. 8.
