How can each individual solve Europe’s problems?
As a consultant, Duc Hoang often asks a lot of questions to understand more about his clients’ situation and then he finds the answers from their own responses. At the age of 25, he experienced a quarter-life crisis (the period of life ranging from twenties to thirties). He felt stressful, doubtful about his life and his future. Then, a monk asked him to ask himself a lot of questions and luckily this helped him survive his personal crisis.
In 2017, Europe will be 25 years old, the same age when Duc had his quarter-life crisis, and it is also going through a crisis. Therefore, he would like to invite the PechaKucha audience to try and act like a consultant, and ask all European citizens the same question: What is the meaning of that number?

Art is Powerful or Powerless? That's one of the questions that Tokyo Art Beat's Tomomi Sasaki and Xin Tahara try to answer in this presentation that looks at the Japanese art scene post 3/11. It was recorded at the last month's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 83.
The City of Tallinn
In this presentation, Liisa Pakosta welcomes everyone to Tallinn and especially to the Fish House (Kalamaja) area, known for its wooden architecture and special atmosphere.

Food Myths: Right or Wrong?
Are the calories one consumes at night more fattening than those consumed during the day? Many would have you believe that they are. In her presentation from PKN Bangkok Vol. 6, nutritionist Judith Coulson answers questions about some of the most commonplace food myths, and debunks quite a few of them.
Distinction Through Typology
Christian Webb has some unique photographic methods. In "Distinction Through Typology" from PKN Bedford, Vol. 1, Christian explains that he takes pictures of similar things and arranges them in a grid-like formation. It's the perfect mix of chao's and structure, and his work produces striking results that lead to questions about typology, diversity, and change.

PechaKucha People: Kevin S. Fox
For PK Person of the Week, Kevin S. Fox, PechaKucha Nights are a 21st-century forum “where the professional, the poetic, and the personal find their public.” Over the past 2 years this American cultural geographer has presented at 9 PechaKucha Nights in Austria, Slovakia, Poland, Germany and USA. For the presentations he usually discusses his monthly radio show, Geographical Imaginations, where he explores the geographies of everything and nothing with a wide range of people—including academics, artists and everyday geographers. He asks questions and explores themes through dialogue and experimentation. Inevitably, these explorations return to simple, yet complex, questions: How does _____ inform the way I picture the world in my head? How does that picture, in turn, limit or expand my place in the world? Check out his Salzburg, Austria based radio program or his recent presentation from PKN Aalen, Geography of PechaKucha.
