Spring Pecha Kucha Night 2015

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.
