PKN Groningen Climbs Tasman Tower
PechaKucha Night Vol. 12 in Groningen was held in the new Tasman Tower, that is not ready yet (pictured above, a rendering of the finished building). It is a rather high PechaKucha, on the 23th floor. Visitors were brought to that floor in an elevator. Because the Tasman Tower is still a construction site, visitors were given a headphone with safety instructions.
On the top floor visitors saw presentations by the first Dutch astronaut, Wubbo Ockels, and the archtiect of the Tasman Tower, Wicher van der Wal, and some 10 other presentations. Visitors were also served a "high tea."
Last night's event also commemorated the untimely death of Mark Hoekstra, who originally brought PKN to Groningen -- see also yesterday's post on the "Mark Hoekstra PechaKucha Award."

For its upcoming PechaKucha Night Vol. 12 (September 20), Groningen is describing the event with the title "Very High Tea," and here's why:
PechaKucha Groningen strikes again. And this time, at tea time. A very, very high tea: come join us at the 23th floor of Tasman Tower. "But, that building's not even finished yet!" you say? You are right. No walls. Great heights. A spectaculair view. And great, great presenters. If you're not afraid of heights (and please, wear something sensible) you are very welcome for a cup of tea and some inspiration.
