The Arab Times Loves PKN

Not only is PechaKucha Night now in Kuwait City -- the inaugural edition took place last week -- it's also getting rave reviews from the press, including a glowing article in the Arab Times. How's this for a great quote: For the audience present at the Al Maidan Cultural Center, the PechaKucha Night was a look at a different side of Kuwait, a side unafraid to be different, bold and brilliantly creative, a side not many of us are unfortunately aware of. You can read a PDF of the entire piece here (the article starts mid-page).
