PechaKucha Night Cleveland

On Friday, August 25th, PechaKucha Night Cleveland heads to the lakefront for a night of inspiration and creativity under the stars on the beautiful Rock & Roll Hall of Fame plaza. In the event of inclement weather we will move inside the Rock Hall.


Doors will open at 7:000pm and presentations will begin at 8:45pm. We expect a large turnout for Volume 31 so to help us plan accordingly, please Rsvp before August 18th. Early registrants will be eligible to win one of the 50 limited edition screenprinted posters! While we will be providing some seating, we encourage you to come early and bring a lawn chair.


As always, tickets to PKN are free, but you donations are always welcome. $1.00 of each donation will go to PKN Global to help support the PechaKucha Night globally and the rest will help keep PKN Cleveland free and inspiring.

Japanese for “the sound of conversation,” this event features a succession of 10-12 speakers, each sharing new ideas about topics ranging from visual art, architecture, and technology to food, film, music, photography and furniture design through a vibrant 400 second long presentation (20 slides X 20 seconds each). The rapid-fire style keeps audiences engaged while breaking down barriers between different creative communities. The goal is to expose and attract new talent and ideas and incite meaningful collaborations among presenters and audience members.
