Pecha Kucha (sounds like chit-chat in Japanese) was created 12 years ago by a Tokyo architectural firm. Events are now held in more than 800 cities around the world.  More information is available on Facebook at pecha-kucha-bozeman or by emailing pechakuchabozeman@gmail.com   You are encouraged to come early to socialize.  There will be a 20-minute intermission.
