PechaKucha Night in Providence


Event Details


We’re heading outdoors again this month for the 75th consecutive PechaKucha Night in Providence!This month, we’ll be teaming up with Providence Monthly to celebrate their annual “Superlatives Issue” at Lola’s Tequila Bar & Cantina. They will hold their The Coolest Party Ever starting at 5:30 (more details to come), which will then transition into PechaKucha Night at 7:20. You’re welcome to join us for one or both.In keeping with the celebration, this month’s theme will be “Superlative.” Presenters should feel free to interpret the theme literally, loosely, or not at all.We are still recruiting presenters. If you’re interested in presenting, hit us up at providencepkn@gmail.com.As always, PechaKucha Night is FREE and all are welcome. We will be accepting voluntary $2 donations to help fund the global PechaKucha movement and your local chapter.

If you haven’t heard of this global yet unpronounceable phenomenon, PechaKucha is a monthly format for sharing ideas in which presenters are allotted 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide. Simply put: it’s 6 minutes and 40 seconds of show and tell for grown-ups. It began in Tokyo in 2003, has since spread to over 780 cities worldwide, and first landed in Providence in March of 2009. To the best of our knowledge, Providence is the only chapter in the entire world that hosts a PKN every month of the year.

Doors open at 7:20, presentations start at 8:20, and schmoozing goes down throughout.
