VOL 110

June 27, 2018
@ Borealis Coffee Roasters

Announcing the 110th PechaKucha Night in Providence on Wednesday, June 27th! This month we're teaming up with Providence's Service Year Alliance on the outdoor patio of Borealis Coffee Roasters.

Service Year Alliance is a group that connects individuals to a year long service program in a wide array of issue areas, including: education, the environment, disaster relief, healthcare, and many more. Some well known organizations they partner with include AmeriCorps, Peace Corps, Teach for America, Habitat for Humanity, YouthBuild, and City Year.
So it's only fitting that our theme for this month is "Community"

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 

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 1048 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. (Maybe a little later this time around depending on the sun set).
Schmoozing goes down throughout.
