This is an evening of talks that happens every few months. We have been inviting artists, designers, non-profits and academics to talk about the work they do in Kathmandu with the hope of sparking collaborations and initiatives. It was started by myself and Sujan Chitrakar in 2011 (Sujan has been running entirely after the first event) and there has been 11 events so far. I am very proud to have helped set it up.
I had been teaching illustration at Kathmandu University with Sujan, who runs the arts college and we discussed the possibility of bringing the talks that KU hosts outside the university, which would be in the form of informal evening talks in a bar. The Pecha Kucha format fitted exactly what we wanted and we applied to bring PKN to Nepal!
