NEXT EVENT VOL 25

PechaKucha Night Atlanta VOLUME 25! 

PKN ATL is celebrating its 25th night of engaging presentations and we'd like you to join us!! Mark your calendar, save the date, make a plan to have no other plans! 

Vol. 25 will be a delightful mix of new presenters and presentations as well as a couple of alumni presenters! The infamous Kyle Torok will be our fearless emcee for the evening and, as always, there will be buttons. And maybe party hats! Done a hat and a button, listen to presentations starting at 7pm, grab a beverage from the baristas, and schmooze all night! 

New to PKN ATL is the required minimum donation of $1.00, 100% of which is used to support the PechaKucha Global Fund, to help support the continuation and growth of the program.

We're also still recruiting presenters for our future PechaKucha Nights! If you would like to sign up, email us at pechakucha.atlanta@gmail.com. As always, PechaKucha is uncensored and unjuried. You don't need to meet any qualifications to present, you just need to sign up!

If you haven't heard of this global yet unpronounceable phenomenon, PechaKucha is a 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.

About the City's Organizers

  • Kevin Ward

    Hailing from the Buckeye State and a wanderer at heart (add Japan, Haiti, Mexico and Honduras to the list of places traveled) I find myself here in ATL having recently moved from San Francisco. Now, I find I am providing some of the best art and independent film for the masses here in the South. I used to assist and help organize the Columbus, OH Pk Night and I'm looking forward to continuing the fun here in ATL!

  • Amanda Plumb

    I love Atlanta and I'm happy to support creative projects that bring people together -- like Pecha Kucha. And 5 years running StoryCorps Atlanta has taught me a lot about what makes a good story. I'm also a dedicated chicken mommy and I take my southern hospitality duties rather seriously.
