Pecha Kucha – Winter 2015
December 8, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Pecha Kucha is a quarterly storytelling event that brings people together to present and discuss new ideas. Each season, several people from the community give presentations that challenge people to think differently about the environment, culture 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.
Read more about these nights on our Pecha Kucha page!
Doors open @ 6.00
Presentations begin @ 6.30
Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store
