There's a Tesla in space. That's an outlandish reality. A Washington Post article indicates that people in Argentina require less personal space than individuals in other countries. What does space mean to you? PechaKucha Silver Spring Volum 12 explores the idea of space and brings presenters to share their perspectives on the word. Each presenter is armed with 20 slides, each timed to 20 seconds. They've got to get their idea across in less than 7 minutes! Join us fo PechaKucha Silver Spring Volume 12 on Friday, July 27, and bring your friends!

Buy tickets here.

This is a nonprofit event.

What to expect:

Come to the Silver Spring Civic Building on Friday, July 27, 2018 from 7-9:30PM. Spend the first ~20 minutes chatting with some friends, digging tunes, and enjoying beer, wine and light snacks. Around 7:20PM, we'll have the first half of presenters. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll be full of awe. Intermission. We encourage you to discuss ideas that you heard or considered through the first half. Maybe discuss it with a stranger. We'll have the second half of presenters where you'll go through a similar roller coaster of emotion as before. Afterwards, hang out and chat until we kick you out.
