PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 28 - 'Rebellion'
For our third PechaKucha night of 2019 we're heading over to People's History Museum to be part of their monthly Radical Lates series! As ever, we will be bringing 10 creatives to take on the PechaKucha challenge: to present on a topic using 20 images, with only 20 seconds per image. No stopping.
The theme of this event is 'Rebellion'. 2019 marks the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre, a key moment in Manchester's history and the fight for greater democracy and representation in Britain. We were inspired by those actions to tell stories of rebellion, resistance and protest; from people who challenge the status quo to those working hard to ensure that we remember the struggles that have got us to where we are today.
WARNING: Tickets go mega quickly, so act fast to get yours! Also, note the slightly earlier start and finish times. Finally, we will be looking to video and audio record the event. If you have any concerns about being filmed, please get in touch.

On the Night
The doors open at 18:00 and the talks start at 18:30. We'll have a beer break for 30 minutes just after 19:15, where you can head to PHM’s cafe bar The Left Bank. The event will be over by around 20:30 where we'll (probably) head to Crazy Pedros for a drink and a mingle!
About People's History Museum
"PHM is the national museum of democracy, telling the story of its development in Britain: past, present, and future. The museum provides opportunities for all people to learn about, be inspired by and get involved in ideas worth fighting for; ideas such as equality, social justice, co-operation, and a fair world for all. PHM’s year long programme for 2019 explores the past, present and future of protest, marking 200 years since the Peterloo Massacre; a major event in Manchester’s history, and a defining moment for Britain’s democracy."
