PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 21 - 'Making Connections'
Welcome to our first PechaKucha of 2018! This time we're looking at the them of 'making connections' and have a variety of speakers all taking the PechaKucha challenge: 20 images, 20 seconds per image, no stopping. We'll hear about building bridges, mentoring, community engagement, beards, randomly distributed fiction and oxytocin. And we'll also be making origami frogs to race.
This time we have 10 speakers instead of eight. We're experimenting... Let us know what you think.
We'll be at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation, the centre celebrating the author of multiple works including A Clockwork Orange. We're really looking forward to presenting in their beautiful space!

About PechaKucha Night Manchester
PechaKucha Night Manchester was relaunched in June 2016 by a new team after an eighteen month hiatus.
This is our sixth PechaKucha following a string of successful events. We are indebted to the support of Manchester’s creative scene coming along as speakers and audience members as well as our previous hosts, SpacePortX, Ziferblat, The Wonder Inn, Neo, the Rapha Clubhouse, PLANT and Texture. Most importantly, thank YOU for keeping us going!
PechaKucha Nights will continue take place every three months at venues across Manchester. Our mission is to feature a high calibre of creatives, designers, artists and community projects from the city and the North.
