For this week's City Focus, we're taking you to the City of Temples. In the foothills of the Himalayas lies the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu. As it used to be the royal capital, Kathmandu hosts palaces, mansions, gardens of the former Nepalese aristocracy, and seven World Heritage sites. No wonder it is considered to be the center of Nepal's history, art, culture and economyーA perfect place to hold PechaKucha Night, wouldn't you say? Speaking of which, you can catch their PechaKucha Night Kathmandu Vol. 16 on June 25th at Attic.
In 2015, Nepal suffered a catastrophic earthquake. Despite the disaster, the Nepalese people rose above. PechaKucha Night Kathmandu decided to represent their strength in one of their event posters to celebrate creativity in the face of destruction.
Seriously, you guys inspire us. We wish you all the best next week!
