Pecha Kucha Worcester Vol.2 on Sept 13th 2009 at 55 Pearl’s G.A.R. Hall from 7:20pm-10:20pm. Free Hors D’oeuvres served compliments of 55Pearl, located at 55 Pearl Street Worcester Ma 01608

Pecha Kucha is the international phenomenon that brings together thinkers, doers, and all types of “creatives” for a night of rapid-fire “show-and-tells,” networking, conversation, and fun.  The diverse group of presenters focus on their passions while sticking to Pecha Kucha’s patented high-energy formula: 20 slides in 20 seconds each.  The 6 minute and 40 second format keeps the momentum flowing and Pecha Kucha Night, devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham (Klein Dytham architecture), was conceived in 2003 in Tokyo as a place for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. There
is a demand that seems to be global – as Pecha Kucha Night has spread to over 226 cities around the world. Worcester, the 196th city networked into this global community, presented its first volume on June 14th 2009 at Bocado Tapas Bar.

“The creative spirits were alive and kicking at Pecha Kucha Volume #1 a few months back. Worcester has long needed a platform for creatives
and the curious to come together, chatting, laughing, and learning about inspiration. The energy that flowed was tangible and we are back
to present Volume #2 of the Pecha Kucha phenomenon! As organizers, we all ended that evening thinking it was a success, but the feedback was simply overwhelming,” says coorganizer Michelle May.

Worcester’s 2nd Pecha Kucha will feature teachers, scientists, designers, photographers, chefs, installation artists and more. May, Cynthia Woehrle and Scott Zoback host this free event at the historical G.A.R Hall at 55 Pearl in Worcester.
