Next Event

05 NOV


PKN#20 will be taking place on Wednesday, November 5 at the Seacoast Repertory Theatre in Portsmouth, NH. 

PechaKucha Night is an internationally recognized event based on a unique presentation style in which artists, designers and other creative individuals have six minutes and 40 seconds to share their presentations in the traditional PechaKucha format – twenty images, with twenty seconds to talk about each image. 

For the upcoming November 5th event, the selection committee is looking for a broad range of work from diverse creative professions such as designers, inventors, visual artists, architects, chefs, boat-builders, and more. In addition to the November event, the committee is looking for people interested in presenting for the four PechaKucha events it will be presenting in 2015. 

If you are interested in presenting at the November 5th event, please email present@NHpkn.com before Friday, October 3 with the following information: your name and contact information, the medium you work in, a brief description of your work along with the story you would like to tell (250 word maximum) and a link to your website or five low-resolution images of the work you’d like to present. Submissions received after October 3 will be considered for future PechaKucha Night events. 

The Seacoast Repertory Theatre is located at 125 Bow Street in Portsmouth, NH. Doors will open at 6:30pm for drinks and chitchat and presentations will begin at 7:30pm. The gathering is free and open to the public and donations will be accepted.

Come, bring your friends and get ready to be inspired by the creative people in our local area who are coming to share images and stories of their work, their process and what inspires them to live and work as creative individuals amongst us. 

PechaKucha Night Portsmouth organizing partners include 3S Artspace, Klein Dytham Architecture, Calypso Communications, and various creative community members including Chris Greiner, Celeste Ladd, Alfonso Fabrega, Leila Murphy, Mike Teixeira, and Anne Weidman.
