Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - PechaKucha, the micro-conference format that allows sharing ideas and projects through 20 images, 20 seconds per image, arrived in Puerto Vallarta this Summer. After the first two events, PechaKucha Nights have been praised by Spanish and English-speaking audiences that have had the opportunity to discover unique creative projects produced by local residents.


"The first PechaKucha Night, or Volume 1, took place August 26 with six presenters. Volume 2 took place on September 23, with five," commented Paco Ojeda, PechaKucha organizer in Puerto Vallarta.

PechaKucha Puerto Vallarta Vol. 3 will take place on Thursday, October 19, at 8:20 pm at Centro Cultural Biblioteca Los Mangos. This will be the first PechaKucha Night that will focus on a specific topic: Get Busy. The event will be free admission.

"There are many non-profit organizations in the region, many of which have volunteering opportunities," commented the organizer. "The goal of the next PechaKucha Night is to offer these organizations the opportunity to establish a direct link to a captive audience interested in learning about new activities in the region."

It is worth mentioning that all PechaKucha Night presentations are uploaded to the official website, pechakucha.org, where they can be appreciated by anyone. "When we promote projects and activities in Puerto Vallarta that can be improved through volunteerism, we are portraying an upbeat Puerto Vallarta to the entire world, a city where anybody has the opportunity to create a better destination for all." Pechakucha is a Japanese word equivalent to saying 'chit-chat' in English.

PechaKucha Puerto Vallarta Vol. 3 - "Get Busy" - will also be an ideal opportunity for photographers or regional tourism promoters to praise nearby destinations that the general public might be interested in exploring.

To become acquainted with the PechaKucha format, a visit to the official website, pechakucha.org, is a must. It features over 10,000 presentations in diverse topics and languages that have already been presented in over 1,000 cities throughout the world.
