Next Event


Not yet scheduled!

We haven’t scheduled our next PechaKucha Night yet, but in the meantime you can watch some presentations, look at our map to see if there are any scheduled PKNs in nearby cities, or have a look at the long list of upcoming events, to see if there’s one you can attend!



Poster for PKN Knoxville Vol. 11

Daniel Jones is a talented designer employed at Sanders Pace Architecture and he just to happens to be a one of Knoxville's PKN event Organizers.   USGBC is partnering with PKN to offer new presenters and encourage a new crowd to attend the event.   This was kept in mind as an important piece of info for  the poster to communicate.   From the artisit - "The inspiration for this design was observing my son Jack and how freely and unbiased he observes and interacts with the world around him - and how watching a pechakucha presentation (at least a good one anyway) allows the viewer a moment be free to enjoy something completely new and unexpected." -Daniel Jones
