PechaKucha Night Vol. 3... next Thursday!

If you will be in Ho Chi Minh City next Thursday, 16 May 2013, then below is your plan for the evening! -->

A free event filled with creativity, sharing, inspiration... and great company.

PechaKucha Night is back in HCMC for Volume 3  : )

Thursday, 16 May
from 7:00pm

Volume 3 is taking place at a new location:
Cafe Goc Pho
48 Hoa Hong, Ward 2, Phu Nhuan District

PechaKucha, meaning chitchat in Japanese, is a presentation guideline based on the format: 20 images by 20 seconds. Two architects in Tokyo created the PechaKucha format in 2003 as a way for designers and creative minds to meet, show their work and ideas, and share with one another at a social venue. Since starting in 2003, PechaKucha Nights are now held in over 630 cities around the world.

Below are some screenshots of the magazines/webpages in Saigon advertising the event:

I am the organizer for PechaKucha in HCMC... and I keep meaning to post about each event but have yet to do so. I'm proud of having PechaKucha be a part of my 2nd year in Vietnam and for having brought this great event here for the first time. I hope that PKN remains in Saigon long after I leave next month.

Being the last PKN that I will host in Saigon, I'm trying out a new location... hosting Volume 3 in a local cafe right in my neighborhood! I'm very much looking forward to the evening.

AND a special thank you to Kevin and Michelle, friends and co-workers of mine that plan to take over as organizers for PKN in the future.  : )

I'm really happy with how the past two events have gone... both huge successes in my mind. There is a fit for PechaKucha in HCMC... creating a social event, which brings creative minds together for an evening of sharing, inspiration, and hanging out. I've met some great people through these events!

So... here's to next Thursday eve! I hope to see you there.   : )
