Description

Pecha Kucha Night Dundee Vol 19 is happening at the Bonar Hall on Tuesday 7 November 2017 in collaboration with NEoN Digital Arts Festival.

Pecha Kucha Nights run in over 900 cities around the world, they’re a quick-fire way of hearing from people across the city and beyond, and tickets generally go fast…

At Pecha Kucha Night Dundee we have around 12 diverse individuals who speak about whatever they like, and it’s a speedy format – presenters have 20 images and 20 secs per image – so just under 7 mins, which means you hear a lot of interesting, thought-provoking and inspiring stuff with an audience 300+ people it’s a great night out.

Our regular ‘spread the word’ feature on the night gives anyone the chance to grab the mic and shout out the events and opportunities they have coming up.

A huge thanks to Jasmine Holt for the incredible PKN artwork. Check out her website to view more of her illustrations.

To find out more about the format, you can watch over 150 Pecha Kucha Night Dundee talks over on our video wall.

Andrew Kesterton is not very successful geologist, but still loves geo, and since leaving the rocks behind has worked to use maps and spatial information to help protect nature, deliver local services @dundeecouncil, and co-ordinate responses in emergencies with @MapAction. This can all work better with good open data so he’s now on a mission to @opendundee.
