Since this month’s PKN is the Wednesday before the Super Bowl, this month’s theme will be “halftime.” Presenters are welcome to interpret the theme literally, loosely, or not at all. We are still recruiting presenters, so if you would like to sign up, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. PechaKucha is uncensored and unjuried. You don’t need to meet any qualifications to present – you just need to sign up!
As always, PechaKucha Night is FREE and all are welcome. They 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.
