Announcing the 118th PechaKucha night in Providence!

We're 2 months into the New Year, resolutions going strong, we all deserve a little break. Come tell us all about how you've cheated the system, discovered a new way to do something, or found a great escape from the stresses of the world.

We can't think of a better place to treat yourself than the devilishly delicious Sin Bakery where no one will tell if you break your resolutions.

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 providencepkn@gmail.com.

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 1,100 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 7:20pm and presentations begin at 8:20pm.
Schmoozing goes down throughout.
