Next Event

10 FEB


Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the first presentation starting at 7:20 p.m. Pecha Kucha (peh-chak-cha) offers anyone with a passion or a vision--designers, artists, inventors, architects, adventurers, entrepreneurs—an opportunity to share their ideas with the community during a fast-paced, friendly social get-together. There's just one catch—presenters have only 20 slides x 20 seconds each, a total of 6 minutes, 40 seconds!

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 700 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.
Advance tickets ($7 plus $1 restoration fee) are available online at theellentheatre.com.

Tickets also are available at the box office and at the door for $8 ($5 for students) space permitting.


Human Habitat: The Evolution of Efficiency

@ VOL 2 ON JAN 25, 2012

Small changes in our lifestyle can have a rather large impact on energy consumption. To prove this point, Chris goes through the KWH usage in various countries, to illustrate our energy-heavy habits and raise awareness. (in English)


The Town That Jell-O Built

@ VOL 2 ON JAN 25, 2012

Who doesn't love Jell-O? The little dessert that could has a fascinating history, and you'll be guided through it in this presentation by Dede Taylor, whose family has links to the gelatine treat. (in English)

"Presentation of the Day" on January 14, 2013.



The Town That JELL-O Built

Dede Taylor's family history was molded, as it were, by a certain gelatinous dessert: JELL-O. In her presentation (at PKN Bozeman Vol. 2) Taylor takes us down the "Jell-O brick road" of her grandfather's involvement with the household name we now associate with Bill Cosby and J-Lo. We see a small industrial village --Le Roy, New York-- become a modern city with golf courses and an airport, all thanks to this everyman's snack. 
This is yesterday's edition of "Presentation of the Day" and was posted today thanks to the January 14th national holiday "Seijin no Hi" (or, Coming of Age Day) here in Japan. We took a break from our computer monitors and watched from indoors as Tokyo was covered with beautiful (and yes, freezing-cold) white blankets of snow.
