VOL 117

January 30, 2019
@ Rooftop at the Providence G

Announcing the 117th PechaKucha night in Providence!

A new year brings with it a renewed energy, goals, and resolutions. How have you raised the bar in the past, or plan to in the future?

Because we can never pass up a great dad joke, we'll be hosting this event at a literal raised bar. We're thrilled to add the Rooftop at the Providence G to our lineup of venues. And before you ask, yes it is fully enclosed and heated, so you can get your skyline view in January and don't even need to wear a jacket.

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 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.
