NEXT EVENT VOL 123

This month we're back at our favorite summer spot, the backyard of The Avenue Concept. They are home to a legal graffiti wall, the most beautiful collection of spray paint you've ever seen, and the central hub for a team that coordinates some of the coolest public art in Providence. Odds are if you've walked by an outdoor sculpture or mural in Providence, Avenue Concept had a hand in getting it there.

In that spirit, our theme for the month is "Concept to Creation". Remember, themes can be taken as strictly or loosely as you please, including not at all! That's right, as long as you have something to share, we want to hear it.

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.
