Doing the Pecha Kucha in Kuwait...

Kuwait's first Pecha Kucha Night was great! The mix of presenters, the quality of work and ideas displayed, and the response by the audience was all very catalytic. Let's hope this, as well as the future PKN events, will trigger off some form of a heightened awareness of all the issues raised and interests discussed and debated. Thanks Dr. Asseel for a brilliant event!
