Pecha Kucha – {creativity*conversation}

The Pecha Kucha Brussels premiere was a real-life “experience” about {creativity*conversation}, and did attract the audience – venue was full full full. Thanks to you all for being there, the speakers did a great job, thanks to the partners for the in-kind support (see partners tab on the top of the page here) and Namahn for the seeding. Duvel and Cafe Belga allowed the conversations to flow. Great.

Some are already talking about this event, like:

Some images are on flickr.
