VOL 122

June 26, 2019
@ The Courtyard @ The Plant

Announcing the 122nd PechaKucha night in Providence!

The summer vibes are getting our creative juices flowing, so we want to hear all about thinking outside the box. Creative solutions. Unique ideas. Things so outside the box that we can't even think of what they are. Bring it on!

This month our friends at Troop are letting us hang out in their back yard. You may know it as the Flicks on Bricks spot, or that place outside of the the Riffraff Bookstore, or as courtyard at the plant. Whatever you call it, you know that's it's a perfect space for our first outdoor venue of the summer!
BYOC (Bring Your Own Chair)

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.
