TAINAN Posts

This week we shine the PechaKucha People Spotlight on the dynamic duo, Sonia Selavy and Leslie Tsai of PechaKucha Night Tainan. Sonia’s journalistic sensibilities combined Leslie’s charismatic leadership and people prowess make this power couple a formidable team who do more than just showcase Tainan’s talent but truly celebrate it. Congrats Sonia and Leslie! Looking forward to your next PKN!!!

Taking the spotlight in this week's City Focus is Taiwan's vivacious capital city, Taipei. Characterized by its diversity and charming hospitality, Taipei has cultivated an excellent environment for the growth of bountiful creativity and knowledge in Taiwan. With PechaKucha Night Taipei Vol. 35 coming up soon, let's wish them the very best and hope to see more amazing presentations from Taipei in the near future! Hip-hip-hurray for Taipei!

As co-founder of the City Creative Center in Tainan, Taiwan, and PhD student at the Institute of Creative Industries Design, our PechaKucha People Spotlight this week lands on Leslie Tsai. Through organizing PechaKucha Nights in the culturally rich city, he's driven to incubate, promote, and empower it's emerging young talent. 


UPDATE FROM EARTHQUAKE HIT TAIWAN: Very Relieved that PechaKucha Tainan, Taiwan city organisers Leslie Tsai and Nini Lee are safe after the big earthquake in Tainan. We have been in touch - Leslie says the situation is 'very serious' - a heritage project he has been working on has been badly damaged. We will chat more when the situation is calmer. The whole PechaKucha global community wishes you positive strength over the next hours and days - we will try to help in anyway we can. In a strange coincidence we featured Leslie as PechaKucha Person of the week - on Monday - on the top page of the www.pecha-kucha.org site. Check back here for updates. 2016.02.06, 12:56:52 CST, (UTC+08:00)
