"We came together with the the common bond for all things creative and community. We believe in the power of shared story; rewarding or challenging, humorous or heart-wrenching, all are worthy of our attention."

In Jewel of North Queensland from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 134, presenters Cathy-Ann Kerr and Angie Quinn share their home city of Cairns and the spirit of it's people that make the community so special there. From their proximity to the great barrier reef, to their culturally rich heritage, from their deep connection to their natural world, to the busting art and nightlife scene, to the city provides so much that the great land down under has to offer. With a such an abundance of passionate people, beautiful landscape, and creative talent, PechaKucha Night Cairns is in an optimal location to bring people together.
