PechaKucha Night Nairobi Vol. 14


PechaKucha (pronounced: “peh-cha-ku-cha”) presentations are captivating performances of a spoken narrative over 20 image-rich slides.


PK, as it’s affectionately known — especially by those who can’t figure out the pronunciation — is a worldwide phenomenon that now takes place in more than 1,000 cities — including Nairobi


A few times each year a diverse and curious audience gathers to hear a few speakers share a particular passion. Although the atmosphere is casual, the format is prescribed: 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each while the speaker provides narration. About halfway through the evening, there’s a break for drinks, snacks and socializing. Admission is free. Anyone can sign up to present.


This June 14th, the Karen Village hosted another PechaKucha Night. Drinks and snacks were sponsored by Kericho Gold Tea Company and Krackles Crips. It was well attended as each speaker shared their passion and delivered bold and enlightening discussions for the public to explore together.


Below is the list of presenters and their awesome topics:


George Mutai--Adventure//Motorcycle Rider. Topic: I can’t afford not to rideIdah Marangu--Interior Designer. Topic: Women empowermentNahya ‘Kuri’ Mando--Musician/Curator. Topic: Memory BoxPhilip Kisia--Photographer. Topic: The capture of sentimentOreva Akpoveso--Business Administrator. Topic: Africa’s Educated Illiterate  Rogan Anjili--Artist. Topic: Nature Politics; Social consciousness through Art


Special thanks to the Karen Village and the Tsavo innovation Labs for hosting this event.
