After 5 years and 20 successful volumes, PechaKucha Night organizers in Taos admittedly wondered if it might be time to pass on the torch. It seems their community has demanded otherwise as they deserve this week's City Focus for kicking off 2017 with their 21st volume! Here's to you, Taos!

This week's PechaKucha City Focus lands on the City of Bridges, Pittsburgh. While the steel city straddles 3 rivers, it also hosts a vibrant PechaKucha Night, presentations from it's recent Vol. 25 which are now online. Head over to their city page and take in some of Pittsburgh's hidden creativity. 

PechaKucha Night Caracas deserves this week’s City Focus for writing us saying that each presentation at their recent Vol. 4 has "become a shot of inspiration for a community that is overwhelmed with the difficult time that we are living ... after each event is a halo of hope, you can hear people saying to us 'yes we can'".

Kennebunkport, Maine, USA, "A Place to Be All Year", lands the PechaKucha City Focus for sharing their communities' creativity this week, by uploading a batch of presentations from their recent Vol. 21! Their proximity to the sea informs topics ranging from Lobster Photography to Amphibious Tiny Houses! Check 'em out!

Despite a population of only 75, making PechaKucha Night Monhegan our smallest city, they are also one of our most vibrant, as you can see in this photo. That's why we're putting this week's PechaKucha City Focus on them! Keep an eye on their upcoming Vol. 3 and check out their past presentations!

The city of Wellington in New Zealand grabs our City Focus this week for hosting their 30th volume in - believe it or not - a beautiful Gothic cathedral, replete with a hug-your-neighbor moment! Certainly a tremendous space in which to celebrate PechaKucha Wellington's big milestone! Hallelujah! 

Hats off to Pecha Kucha Night Ho Chi Minh City who deserve this week’s City Focus. At their recent Vol. 9, they shared some amazing 20x20 presentations that well worth a watch. Funny, inspirational, and capture the city’s modernity yet without losing it’s Vietnamese heritage.


City Focus this week goes out to Scotland's Glasgow, one of PechaKucha's most proactive and contributing cities. Way to go Glasgow! Here's our little autumn cheer to the land of ancient castles, breathtaking nature sights and the Lochness Monster. Make sure to check out Glasgow's city page for some uh-mazingly inspiring presentations!

PechaKucha Night Leiden grabs the City Focus this week as they celebrate their special October Festival this week! Check out presentations from their recent Vol. 16 and be on the look out for more creativity some coming in from their upcoming Vol. 17 later this month! Have a great October Leiden!  

PechaKucha Night Halifax takes the City Focus Spotlight for some great presentations from their recent Vol. 21. With topics ranging from craft in pop culture to design for healthy aging, from Gaelic culture in Nova Scotia to an app that makes it easy to meet new people, their presentations are well worth a look!
