PKN in Ginowan

BY MAKI NISHIMURA
@ VOL 19 ON OCT 10, 2015

People tend to remember Okinawa as just Okinawa, but there are actually cities there. PechaKucha Night Ginowan organizers Maki and Daryl talk about the unique challenges and benefits of having the event in their city, as well as they dream to build a more vibrant art community. This was at the special PechaKucha Night Huddle held in Kyoto in October 2015.
