Announcing the 119th PechaKucha night in Providence!

PechaKucha in Providence has been going strong for 10 years! We want to reflect on moments that have stood out during this last decade, so we've got a special format:

10 presenters, each presenter's theme is one year between 2009 - 2018. If you want to claim a slot, shoot us an e-mail at with which year you're interested in and a 1-2 sentence pitch on your presentation. We want to to get one presenter to cover each year, so we'll only have one slot per year.

We'll be celebrating with our friends from the coolest landmark on the West Side, The Columbus Theatre.

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.
