Past Providence Event: VOL 88

Large wide avenue

VOL 88

July 27, 2016
@ The Avenue Concept

Announcing the 88th consecutive PechaKucha Night here in Providence! This time we return to one of our favorite venues – The Avenue Concept – for what has become a summer tradition. This is always one of our best PKNs of the year, so don't miss out.

This month's theme, appropriately, will be "avenues." Presenters are encouraged to interpret the theme literally, loosely, or not at all. If you're interested in presenting, email us at PechaKucha is unjuried and uncensored, so anyone can sign up. 

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 900 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 7:20, presentations start at 8:20, and schmoozing goes down throughout.
