PK Global Night in AlKhobar (Vol.2)
To the delight of Eastern Province residents, Friday, the 20th of September marked the second PechaKucha Night (PKN) in Al-Khobar, paving the way for two more to follow in the near future. A concept devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham based in Tokyo, PechaKucha is an informal speaker event set apart by its 20x20 format ; every presenter uses the aid of 20 images, each of which can stay on only for 20 seconds, to get his/her point across. It was initially this creative and dynamic approach which drew the PechaKucha organizers to the event and inspired them to set up its Al-Khobar Chapter in April 2013. This time however, PechaKucha Night Al-Khobar Volume 2 was one of hundreds that took place around the globe on the 20th of September to mark what was declared “Global PechaKucha Night” only further adding to the anticipation and hype surrounding the event! Supported by Google Talk, a part of the event was also streamed live on PKN’s 18 hour Global Hangout chat in conjunction with several others being hosted around the world, all the way from Istanbul and Edinburgh to Tokyo and Toronto. Most importantly though, the soul of PechaKucha remain its speakers and with the global theme of “Hidden Heroes”, Al-Khobar’s finest were in form. Featuring seven inspirational speakers including the very charming Mrs. Abeera Atique Who spoke about “The Psychology of Art”, Mrs. Basma Orri on the relevance of Prophet Muhammad and the example of his life in the 21st century, Mr. Mohammed Ali’s uplifting account of his trip to a refugee camp in Kenya, Ms. Wafa Obaidat’s talk on her entrepreneurial success and a seamless photographic journey led by Mr. Ali Iftikhar, the audience was alternately wowed, surprised and deeply inspired. To top it off, Ms. Samaher Mously’s talk on overcoming external obstacles she faced when she set out to climb Mount Everest and Mr. Mohammed Qahtani’s awe-inspiring recount of his own personal struggle with the fear of public speaking perfectly embodied the essence of the event’s hidden heroes theme. In the words of the PKN team itself, “we hoped that through the narratives and tales heard at the PechaKucha Night, people would take away the idea that there is a hero in all of us. Sometimes, all we need to do is to have the courage to let that spirit shine through.” Complete with snacks including delicious burgers from “Meat Lover’s” and drinks provided by Red Bull, the event definitely turned out to be food for thought on more than just a figurative level!
