New Organizers for PechaKucha Bermuda!

Pechakucha Bermuda was was launched in 2012 by Nicky Gurret and Aideen Ratteray Pryse, and for 6 years they have dedicated their time as volunteers, later joined by Tiago Garcia, Najib Chentouf and Hannah Collins to organise four PechaKucha events each year where there are eight speakers at each event. PechaKucha Nights have taken place at a variety of venues all over the island such as Bermuda Musical & Dramatic Society (BMDS), Bermuda Society of Arts Gallery (BSOA), Blue Water Anglers Club, Devonshire Rec, Sandys Boat Club, St. George's Cricket Club, Somerset Cricket Club, and other clubs, with over a total of 120 different presenters talking about topics that are dear and near to their hearts. At a time when email, Facebook and Twitter seemingly reduce the need for face-to-face encounters, a PechaKucha nights forces us out of the house or office and into a social space for stimulation and interaction. The new group of Pechakucha lovers that will now facilitate on a volunteer basis are Alba Fernandez, Kimberley Moore, Tiffany Paynter, Najib Chentouf, Stratton Hatfield and Hannah Collins. PechaKucha events involve a variety of people presenting their out-of-the-box creative ideas on any topic of their choice for everyone to enjoy, think about, laugh at and, maybe, be inspired by. Stay tuned for our next event, being planned for late August 2017!   PechaKucha Bermuda founders Nicky Gurret and Aideen Ratteray Pryse with Lamone Woods of Crimson Multimedia at St. George's Cricket Club   New PechaKucha Bermuda organizers Alba, Kim, Tiffany, and Stratton with Warwick Workman's Club staff.
