Point of View

@ VOL 2 ON FEB 27, 2011

Samer shares his thoughts on how you can perceive things differently after you change your angle or you change your position. The whole picture changes, and it affects your understanding and perception. The presentation is about the importance of taking different points of view on things that we take for granted.

Poster for PKN Aleppo Vol. 1

Another first PechaKucha Night to announce, this time in the Syrian city of Aleppo. The Vol. 1 is happening December 12 at Art River, with the very PK-friendly start time of 20:20. And here a few words from the organizers (from the official event page) that we think set the tone quite nicely: Today, we are sharing a new idea in our city, a new type of event, which is about pitching innovative and creative ideas to our fellow citizens in a more open and social way.
