It's our ANNIVERSARY!!  It's been a year since PechaKuchaNights in BSB kicked off.  What a year it has been, thanks for your support *yay* 

For the novice, PechaKuchaNights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps - whatever they are passionate about - in the PechaKucha 20x20 format.  It started in 2003 in Tokyo and now PechaKuchaNights are happening in over 800 cities around the world. 

For BSB, the first PKN took place on 1 November 2014 with 50 people in attendance.  If you want to be part of Vol 5, go to

See you there!
