Announcing the 77th consecutive PechaKucha Night in Providence, this time at Providence’s biggest and most beloved park! We’re excited to work with the @Providence Department of Parks and Recreation to bring PKN to the beautiful and historic Roger Williams Park Casino for the very first time!
Roger Williams Park is truly a resource and gathering place for our whole community, and thus, this month’s theme will be “Community.” As always, presenters are encouraged to interpret the theme literally, loosely, or not at all.
We are still recruiting presenters. If you’re interested, hit us up at [email protected].
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.
