Pecha Kucha Night Dundee Volume 6 returns to a screen near you on Tuesday 21st May 2013, during Ignite Dundee, a celebration of all things creative and cultural in the area.
PKNs are an opportunity to hear from around 12 totally diverse individuals who speak about whatever they fancy – things they like/loathe/their geeky habits/or their work. You get to sit, listen, laugh and enjoy… PKN is part of a massive global network, which you can find out more about here: Pecha Kucha Nights.
Have a look at all previous PKNs and watch videos of the presentations here.
Thanks to graphic designer Paul Sparks for the awesome PKN Dundee Vol 6 artwork above.
