PechaKucha Night in Warsaw Vol. 2 was held last month on the eve of the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti," and from the extensive photos we've seen -- there's more to see in this Flickr photoset -- it was a memorable night. Here's more from organizer Dorota Szopowska. On the 18th of February in the Bee’s Dream it was colorful, clubby and crowdy. Although the weather conditions were not the best, the public showed up for the second edition of PKN Warsaw. The evening started at 7:30 pm with a concert by Elektroliryka. The atmosphere was filled with images, sounds and lyrics of poets. At 8:20 pm the presentations’ session started. This time there were 12. The presenters showed a lot of good Polish design from different areas: photographs, graphics, illustrations, and ..... northern lights. Marcin Kolorski, PROPORTIONS Jakub Batog, YACHTS’ DESIGN Marta Niemyska, DESIGN Jakub Żeligowski, MY JOURNEY TO THE EAST Dawid Parus, LIBERTY AND FREEDOM Dawid Korzekwa, STGU Kamila Niedzwiecka i Nikodem Szponar, POLISZ DIZAJN Anna Czapkiewicz, PINCH OF ANGELA Piotr Hołub, ILLUSTRATIONS Dominika Naborowska Katarzyna Okińczyc, DESIGN Fairyboy Lumiere, MY MAGIC WINTER GARDEN The evening was also special because thanks to the Polish Humanitarian Action, we could support the victims of the humanitarian disaster in Haiti and participate in the global PechaKucha campaign.

Building community... one PechaKucha Night at a time

In a rugged town where passersby only capture franchise offerings on the highway strip, a thoughtful community of thinkers, builders, makers, creators and dreamers reside. They come together every four months to share, listen, question and celebrate at PechaKucha Nights at the local performing arts theatre. Volunteers run the cash bar, complimentary snacks are provided, the lights are dimmed and a DJ sets the mood. We meet the inspirational, courageous, determined and soulful folks who open their hearts and minds. If this is connects with you, please join us for PechaKucha #3.
