@ Aurora

Announcing the 101st PechaKucha Night here in Providence! We're back at Aurora Providence this time and participating in DESIGN WEEK RI. This event will immediately follow the Marathon Clambake, also at Aurora.

In keeping with the spirit of DESIGN WEEK RI, our theme this month will be "design thinking," which presenters are free to interpret literally, loosely, or not a all. If you're interested in presenting, please email us at

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 1010 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 PechaKucha Night every month of the year.

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