VOL 105

January 31, 2018
@ Cafe at Easy Entertaining

Announcing the first PechaKucha Night of 2018. We're excited to be back at one of our favorite venues, Easy Entertaining Cafe on Valley Street in Olneyville!

Our theme for this month, Backwards, honors one of the world's most overlooked holidays: National Backward Day. Presenters are encouraged to interpret that theme as they see fit – literally, loosely, or not at all. If you're interested in presenting, 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.
