VOL 15

February 22, 2019
@ Silver Spring Civic Building

"There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other."
– Douglas H. Everett

How do you view reality? What is reality? Volume 15 is perhaps our broadest and most conceptual theme we've had so far, and we're lining up great speakers to share their views on it. Join us as our speakers share their perspectives and views on Reality.

This is a nonprofit event.

20X20: All of the presentations are exactly 20 slides and each slide is timed to exactly 20 seconds for a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds. It's the PechaKucha way!

Buy tickets here.

What to expect:

Come to the Silver Spring Civic Building on Friday, February 22, 2019 from 7-9:30PM. Spend the first ~20 minutes chatting with some friends, digging tunes, and enjoying beer, wine and light snacks. Around 7:20PM, we'll have the first half of presenters. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll be full of awe. Intermission. We encourage you to discuss ideas that you heard or considered through the first half. Maybe discuss it with a stranger. We'll have the second half of presenters where you'll go through a similar roller coaster of emotion as before. Afterwards, hang out and chat until we kick you out.
