The Making of PKN Gdansk

We've posted plenty of PechaKucha Night event reports, but this is probably the first "making of" coverage we see, courtesy of PKN Gdansk organizer Filip Kozarski. It's great to see how things go down during those last hours of preparation -- we cover the result here. We're huge fans of the event poster that was created for that inaugural PKN Gdansk as well.

Greetings from PKN Cities

As part of this week's 10th anniversary celebrations, we asked PKN city organizers to send us a special greeting image that we will include in a special City Loop, to share at our PKN Tokyo Vol. 100 -- the City Loop is the slideshow that is shown at all PKNs before the the start and during the breaks, showing photos from PKN events around the world. We've received so many great ones, like the one you see pictured here, from the PKN Murcia organizers. We will also share this special City Loop with all city organizers, and so they may share it at a PKN near you.



We are doing it again! Get ready!
