PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 20 - 'Future'

PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 20 - 'Future'

It’s a bit of a milestone for PechaKucha Night Manchester. 20 editions of our 20x20 event: 20x20x20, if you will. In order to mark the occasion we thought we’d have a gaze into the future and invite some of the best design talent living and working in the city to take on the PechaKucha 20x20 challenge: 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide, no stopping. 

Tickets are limited for this one so get in quick to avoid missing out.

Line-up

On the Night

The doors open at 19:00 and the talks start at 19:30. We'll have a beer break just after 20:00. The talks should be finished by 21:15 where you'll have a chance to mingle afterwards.

PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 19 - 'Lessons'

We're going back to school for PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 19. Inspired by the start of the new academic term, we thought we'd focus on what lessons our speakers can teach us over the course of the evening. So if you've ever fancied learning how to be a calligraphist or wondered about whether we can or should love robots, or had aspirations of being a comedian, then this PechaKucha is for you. All of our speakers will be taking the PechaKucha 20x20 challenge: 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide, no stopping.

For Vol. 19 we're going to PLANTNOMA's latest development following the awesome Pilcrow Pub, now overseen by our friends, and PechaKucha alumni, OH OK Ltd. PLANT offers everyone the chance to learn a new skill through their wonderful array of free and cheap workshops. The only condition: whatever you do has to make Manchester greater.

On the night you'll get to play with ceramics and see PLANT NOMA'S drawing robot in action. Plus, we'll have Emma Reynolds who will draw your portrait in 3 minutes. And finally, our resident photographer Fiona Finchett will be presenting her latest exhibition on the wall space around the venue. So get down early to check out all that's on offer.

The doors open at 19:00 and the talks start at 19:30. We'll have a beer break just after 20:00. The talks should be finished by around 21:00 where you'll have a chance to mingle afterwards before inevitably heading across to The Pilcrow Pub for last orders.

PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 18 - Rapha x PechaKucha

PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 18 is going on a tour! 

Rapha and PechaKucha Night Manchester are teaming up for a very special mini-PechaKucha as part of Rapha Rides, celebrating road cycling in the north west. 

Look out for talks by single speed cycle tourer, Markus Stitz, and others, all of whom are taking the PechaKucha 20x20 challenge: 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide, no stopping. The race is on.

Not only that, attendees can get access to an exclusive 20% discount on purchases made on the night. Don't say we don't spoil you.

About Rapha Clubhouse Manchester

Manchester loves cycling and with miles of spectacular riding on its doorstep in the Peak District and Cheshire Lanes it is easy to understand why.

The Rapha Clubhouse is spread over three floors in its home tucked discreetly behind St Ann’s Church. This is the only Clubhouse with a mechanic’s workshop. Upstairs is a café serving the finest food, coffee and a wide range of Rapha products and an exhibition space called The Gallery is on the floor above that, and has hosted many exhibitions including Bradley Wiggins’s personal memorabilia collection.

The Rapha Clubhouse hosts regular rides for both customers interested in taking their cycling to the next level and Rapha Cycling Club (RCC) members. Events such as film screenings, exhibitions and book launches are also regular features.

 

"Squirrelling is the opposite of being a velociraptor."

In Squirrelling from PechaKucha Night Manchesters Vol. 16, Rita Cervetto from Common Good talks about squirelling - an approach designed to help in the planning and preparing for a big project.



Hearts and thoughts from the entire PechaKucha Global Network go out to our friends in Manchester, UK whose city has been rattled by tragedy, but whose spirit refuses to succumb to fear. With their sold out  Vol. 17 on the horizon, the steadfast commitment to cultivating creativity keeps Manchester United! 


PechaKucha People: Kyle Soo

We put our PechaKucha People spotlight on Kyle Soo, organizer of PechaKucha Night Manchester for keeping the city's united spirit alive and well by providing some much deserved creative relief with their upcoming Vol. 17. From around the world, we're cheering you, your team, and your city on! 


"Embrace your weirdness! The weirder the better, I'd say."
