Pecha Kucha is a quarterly storytelling event that brings people together to present and discuss new ideas around sustainability topics. Each season, several people from the community give presentations that challenge people to think differently about conservation, the environment, climate change and each other.
Presenters each have 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to discuss. Slides are automatically timed to be exactly 20 seconds with the total time for each presenter is 6 minutes and 40 seconds. This keeps the pace fun & exciting.
$5 suggested donation.

Alisa is an island of progressive thinking surrounded by a swamp of backwater attitudes. She escapes to Chatham County whenever she can, to participate in the community and like-mindedness. She homesteads with her husband and three children.
Dave Clark and his partner Lisa Piper blew into Pittsboro and took the town by storm. They renovated an old historic house downtown and opened up Small B&B Cafe, a beloved community restaurant and lodging. Their next venture is to bring a small visionary art museum to Pittsboro.
