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!


Empowering Street Artists, Activating Citizens


Many think of vandalism and graffiti when they hear the words "street art", but people like Mario Rueda see the city in a very different light. Public spaces are taken over by advertisements and corporations, but the artists, performers, and musicians who share their creativity and seek to delight fellow citizens are treated like criminals. Book a Street Artist is a platform which seeks to empower artists, and give back the city to citizens. 

"Presentation of the Day" on June 20, 2014.
