Pecha Kucha Night #9

Thursday 13th June 2013 Chill Bar

Come and hear our random line-up of 20×20 speakers make their presentations about a variety of subjects. Have a drink and a chat in the stimulating company of assorted interesting people…

The next Barnsley Pecha Kucha Night will be on Thursday June 13th, 6.30pm – 8.30pm.

The ‘Pecha Kucha Night (PKN)’ creative networking concept was devised by Klein Dytham Architecture in Tokyo in 2003 and PKN events are now held in over 600 cities and towns worldwide.

Whether in Barnsley, Berlin or Bogota, Pecha Kucha Night involves a diverse line-up of speakers making brief, bright presentations about subject matters of their choice – showing 20 slides, timed to show for just 20 seconds each.

At out last Pecha Kucha Night here, our 20×20 speakers talked about Chinese customs, Fibonaaci numbers and bee hives; as well as internet accessibility, periods, typefaces, the JCI and cats.

Come and join us. Everyone is welcome. The idea is to bring together people working, studying or interested in creative, design, arts, media and digital industry sectors.
