PKN Worcester Vol. 1

PechaKucha Night in Worcester kicked off with a bang, enjoying a packed house for that city's inaugural PKN, with organizers, presenters, and attendees all enjoying an exciting evening of creativity. Co-organizer Scott Zoback fills us in.

A huge, huge, huge thank you to all of the presenters, volunteers, and attendees of Worcester's first ever PechaKucha Night, as well as gracious host Bocado -- you all made it a captivating success.

The night was at once inspiring, hilarious, educational, and silly. We were in awe of the incomparable collection of "creatives" under one place, all sharing interesting ideas, networking, drinking, and having a good time.

PKN Worcester Debuts This Week

PechaKucha Night launches in Worcester this coming Sunday (June 14), and one of that city's organizers, Cynthia Woehrle, has posted the video above in which she goes over the presenters and talks about what PKN means to her.

Here's a quote from an interview done with Cynthia at Worcester Magazine:

What are you hoping will come from such an event in Worcester? Bring the art community closer? Inspire artists?

I am looking to integrate artists of all types of media ( writers, filmmakers, scientists, painters, musicians, designers, good will doers,) and bring them to a format where they can share ideas, projects and inspirations on the same playing field. As well as give the community an opportunity to to hear perspective from creative thinkers. We are not looking to only inspire artists but inspire anyone. As much as I want to promote the local arts community this event reaches beyond that and connects Worcester to an international network of 200 cites in the Pecha Kucha organization. Ultimately my hope would be that new and exciting projects will be born out of connections made or ideas shared that would cultivate the creative community here in Worcester.

PKN Worcester is also following in the footsteps of previous city exchanges by partnering up with PKN Halifax -- its Vol. 2 is happening the same night -- to share some video greetings.
