PechaKucha Night,now in over 1,000 cities, was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
Resting comfortably on the Baja California Penninsula in Mexico, Ensenada shines bright in this week's City Focus. With a population of around 700,000 people, the city is the third largest in Baja California and is home to an ethnically diverse community that fosters a unique culture, including being the birthplace of the modern fish taco! Maybe that is why its local nickname is "La Cenicienta del Pacífico" - The Cinderella of the Pacific. Hosting Mediterranean climates, Ensenada also finds itself at the heart of the Mexican wine country, as well as being a popular destination for tourists and cruise ships. With good wine and a fun culture, it truly sounds like the perfect place for a PechaKucha; and as luck would have it, our friends down in Ensenada have arranged their Vol. 3 event, which will take place on July 11th. If you are in the area, you won't want to miss it!
Viva Ensenada y viva PechKucha!
PechaKucha Night Ulaanbaatar was not playing around this week as they take the top spot in our Poster Spotlight! This colorful and chaotic poster brings the same fun energy that can be found during the events hosted there, and features a wild collage of eyes, birds, ice cream and almost every shape and color imaginable; we love it! While Ulaanbaatar is still rather new to the PK family, they take no shortcuts in providing a worthwhile event that looks like an absolute blast.
With a poster like this, imagine how great their Vol. 4 event will be on July 6th, just a few days away!

What if the world was made of LEGO? In this talk, Luke Lyons shares how he sees the world as tiny plastic interlocking bricks. Lyons, like many children, grew up playing with LEGO, but today he uses LEGO as an outlet for his creativity and artistic side. He has created LEGO scale buildings of old high schools, university buildings, train stations and designed his own museum specifically for the purpose of displaying a LEGO Tyrannosaurus rex. He discusses how LEGO promotes creativity in STEM education, while still accessing the arts.
