City Focus: Wolfville

For this week's "City Focus" we want to highlight another successful new series, and so we head to the Canadian town of Wolfville, to share its growing presentation archive, and that's with only two PechaKucha Nights so far (Wolfville's Vol. 3 is already set for September).

PechaKucha on YouTube

We know that many of you love watching content on YouTube, and so on top of continuing to share our presentations here on the global site, we are now adding our "Presentations of the Day" on YouTube as well. Check out our new PechaKucha Channel, subscribe, and share!
