Seminar sessions and workshops at the festival are more general, covering a wide range of issues. It invites experts, professionals, government officials, and youth achievement to talk about law and governance, politics, culture, creative industries, information technology, environment, education, health, activism, social entrepreneurship, as well as journalism and media.

A Great Night!
Thank you Santa Fe! Our AMAZING eight presenters really brought the creative juice to Volume One! Or as one attendee said, 'It's like a perfect slice of Santa Fe.' A wonderful start to a healthy PechaKucha career here. Our room at the Travel Bug was full, and we spoke with several people who already volunteered to present at Volume Two. We also gained great new volunteer organizers -- already we're thinking about Volume Two. Please be in touch if you can suggest venues, speakers or if you'd like to help: PechaKucha.SantaFe@gmail.com. THANK YOU again to all attendees for trying something new, and to our incredible and brave and creative speakers. Great job!!! Peace love and PK, -CR
A Beautiful Reality
"People rarely, if ever, made it into my images -- and when they did, it was a depiction of what they did, and never really a depiction of how they felt to me." Originally a travel photographer, Ralph Hassenpflug has changed his creative approach and now enjoys photographing people and the aspects of them that are disconnected from their "public selves." In the fascinating "A Beautiful Reality" from PKN Midcoast, Maine Vol. 18, Ralph describes the primitivistic approach to his art: he does not think his pictures - he feels them.
