PKN 4 in Vientiane!

Vientiane's fourth PechaKucha Night took place on September 15, 2016, with a packed house of OVER 200 people at TimeLine Cafe! This well and truly exceeded our past attendance record - we are overwhelmed with gratitude to our always awesome audiences for their support! 

The event brought together 10 of the Capital's creative, innovative and talented minds: claymation artist Souliya Phoumivong of Clay House studio, tea sommelier Anna Maria of Kinnari - Tea of Laos, lacquer artist Marie Do Hyman-Boneu of MDO Art Studio and Lacquer Vientiane Laos, writer and Eat Drink Laos blogger Lilani Gonnesena, disability and rehabilitation sector worker Bernard Franck, theatre director Thiane Khamvongsa of A Midmonsoon Night's Dream, artist Bruno le Matelot, teacher Teresa Foard, renewable enery and acroyoga enthusiast Ga Rick Lee, and Emily Koo of Vientiane Green Drinks.

Presentations spanned the tea-scapes of Laos, powerful female figures, exploring the stories of persons living with impairment, a life in the theatre, a family's extrodinary battle with a terminal cancer diagnosis, stories from the Mekong riverside, and digging deeper into the oft-asked question "Where are you from?".

Many thanks to TimeLine Cafe for hosting us, TOH LAO Coworking Space & Services for technical support, and designer Manilla Chounlamountri for our totally awesome Vol. 4 poster!
