VOL 11

May 06, 2016
@ River Market

Predictably GOOD FUN. Purchase your tickets HERE!

Started in Tokyo in 2003 by Klein Dytham Architecture firm, PechaKucha Night began as a fun and unique night of local culture and entertainment. Ten presenters from a range of fields share their interesting projects, inspirations and passions. There's only one catch - presenters get 20 images, 20 seconds each, making for a 6 minute and 40 second shot of ideas and inspiration.

Join us for drinks at starting at 7:00 pm in the food hall and enjoy local craft beer, wine and relaxed sounds from DJ Jordan Whittaker. River Market vendors Longtail Kitchen and Re-Up BBQ will be open late to serve you before the show starts if you're looking for some snacks.

At 8:00 the fun starts with our ten PechaKucha talks and a short intermission mid-way.

Prepare to be engaged, entertained and inspired.
