PechaKucha in AlKhobar Provides Food for Thought
Sketchbook Magazine has a recap up on the recent Global Night edition of PechaKucha Night Al-Khobar. The night featured speeches from martial artists, entrepreneurs, and designers -- here's a clip referring to activist Mohamed Ali's presentation on refugee camps in Kenya: Mohamed showed pictures of children writing on tree barks for school, because books were simply unavailable, saying: “We strive to reach our goals, when people in African countries in need strive to live to see the next day. We know from media that African living conditions are harsh, but we wanted to see the truth for ourselves. PKN Al-Khobar Vol. 2 took place on September 20, 2013 at the ADC Compound Hall.
