PechaKucha Night Providence


Event Details


It’s time once again for one of your favorite PechaKucha Nights of the year: We return to the beautiful outdoor space and community garden at The Avenue Concept!

The good folks at the Avenue Concept always roll out the hospitality for PKN. They will be offering garden tours and showcasing interactive art projects, and offering free BBQ and other food. There will once again be cocktails from everybody’s favorite herbalist/bartender, Jessyloo of Parcel Apothecary CSA & Cocktail Farm! Food and drink is free, but donations are graciously accepted.

Since July is the Most American Month in America, and this is PKN #76 (like 1776, get it?), this month’s theme will be “‘Murica!” 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.
