Last Wednesday, something special happened in Pip. To us as an organization this would have to be the best Pecha Kucha Night in The Hague, yet! Over 100 people showed up to get inspired and be entertained, to laugh and to meet new people. Now, we look back at the last edition with you to enjoy it for one last time and get ideas for the next PKDH, which will take place somewhere in June.

This time, more than during the previous editions, speakers took the liberty to find their own creative way of using the 20×20 format. We saw combinations of pictures, videos and sound, but also performances in fragments of 20 seconds. Some speakers chose to not talk, others seemed to have everything planned out. Variation is what makes a Pecha Kucha Night so unique. Not only in content, but also in locations, variety was the key word of the night; we went to Gambia, Nigeria, Birma, The Kyrgyz Republic, Sankt Moritz or stayed in the city centre of The Hague.

As you may have noticed, we filmed everything, which is now availabe through Pip tv;

part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4.

We also uploaded pictures to our Flickr-group, feel free to spread and share! Credits for the pictures go to Anna Czyzewska.

Ofcourse, we have some people to thank, starting with the speakers, in order of appearance;

Joost Haas
Bas Ackermann
Christian Kryl
Saskia Mees
Shireen van Dorp
Ruben Steeman
Sieko Kloosterhuis
Ibrahim Ineke
Maurice Ajanaku
Martijn Kramp
Peter de Ruiter
Sietze Kalkwijk

Ofcourse, much love to Pip who once again opened up their doors for all of us. Don’t forget to support these guys, in this setback, by visiting Steun de Pip dip and donating. Much thanks to for helping us out with the technical part and the stream, brought to you by Zapstream.  And a very special thanks to Tanja Busking and Dayna Casey, for the very slick design of the posters and flyers!

And last, but not least; thank you! Without your enthusiasm, support and you being there, Pecha Kucha Night in The Hague would not be here. We will keep you posted when we have the next date, and we hope to see you there.
