Taos offers many galleries and museums that showcase regional artwork which make hosting PechaKucha Nights in this arist-filled city something unique and special. They are hosting their 28th volume on the 16th of September at the Taos Center for the Arts and we look forward to what the Taos community has to share. Be ready to be inspired!

Promoting free expression, this intruiging work produced for PechaKucha Night Troyes Vol.3 caught our eye and made it's way into this week's PK Poster Spotlight.

The poster flawlessly illustrates the significance of conversation and the exchanging of ideas in our communities.
