If you haven't heard of this global yet unpronounceable phenomenon, Pecha Kucha is a monthly format for sharing ideas, in which presenters are allotted 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide. Put simply: 6 minutes and 40 seconds of adult-style show & tell. It began in Tokyo in 2003, has since spread to over 463 cities worldwide, and first landed in Providence in March of 09.

***Doors open at 7:20, presentations start at 8:20, and shmoozing goes down throughout.***
