60 Mindful Minutes

Feb 9, 2018

What happens when a community comes together to share its stories, triumphs, struggles and aspirations? PechaKucha, an international speaker series based on a 20×20 format (20 slides, 20 seconds each), exists to explore this question. Now held in over 1,000 cities around the world, the series gives a platform to each city’s residents—from creatives to professionals to regular folks with a story to tell—and the result is people connecting with people they would probably have never crossed paths. Minds change, perspectives shift, empathy and compassion expands, and also people fall in love with the unique tapestry of their city.
