I know you've heard it before over the last three years but this time it's for real- we're coming back at you!! It's been a long time since PK has been a presence here and I for one have been ready and waiting to experience one of my favorite events ever. I've lived here some months past two years and in all this time I have wanted to see PK happen again... Now we're making it happen again! We will be coming back to Octane on Sunday, May 12th for Vol. 18.
I'm looking forward to meeting everyone, introducing myself and starting PK again with a terrific Vol. 18! I hope we get a great crowd so please do come and see us!
A big thank you goes out to Tony and John at the Westside Octance Coffee shop for immediately welcoming us back and being so accommodating with our needs so far. Drink coffe.
Drop us a line, keep in touch, volunteer to help out the day of or sign up to present! Become a part of the PK movement here in Atlanta. Also, check out our new Twitter feed @PechaKucha_ATL and help spread the word! We'll also be creating a new Facebook page in the coming days so keep an eye out for that as well!

Atlanta had its 16th PechaKucha Night this past Sunday, and we've already found a Flickr photoset covering the event -- the low-resolution would indicate that the photos were taken with a mobile phone, but it still gives a nice glimpse at what a PKN in Atlanta looks like. The top page of the photoset also includes a list of all the presenters, with plenty of links.

PKN Atlanta Vol. 12
This past Sunday, Atlanta held its 12th edition of PechaKucha Night at the Octane Coffee Lounge, and also celebrated a special milestone: the first presenter of the evening was the city's 100th!
Below, a few more photos from PKN Atlanta Vol. 12 -- we're digging the moodiness of the black and white. You can also visit PKN Atlanta's website to see an incredible collection of past presentations, hosted on Vimeo.
