VOL 78

September 23, 2015
@ The Facade at 35 Weybosset St.

This is it – the last outdoor PechaKucha Night of the year! So we're teaming up with our friends from The Arcade and New Harvest Coffee + Spirits to close out the summer in a super cool location: The Facade at 35 Weybosset St., which some of you may remember from the One Providence Experience earlier this summer.

We're also proud to be a part of DESIGN WEEK RI, which runs from September 16-27. In celebration of that, this month's theme will be "imagine," which presenters are welcome to interpret literally, loosely, or not at all.

Speaking of which, we are still recruiting presenters. If you're interested in joining the line-up, hit us up at providencepkn@gmail.com.

As always, PechaKucha Night is FREE and all are welcome. We will be accepting voluntary $2 donations to help fund the global PechaKucha movement and your local chapter.

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

Doors open at 7:20, presentations start at 8:20, and schmoozing goes down throughout.
