Promising yet another lively and thought-provoking night out, PechaKucha Bermuda is hosting its 12th Edition on Thursday, August 13th at the Young Men’s Social Club on Angle Street.

PechaKucha Bermuda is a simple, effective and entertaining way of telling a story or idea. There are usually 8 presenters and each presenter shows 20 images to accompany their presentation, each image the presenter can only speak for 20 seconds. Since there is no pausing or going back, speakers have no choice but to keep to their allotted time. Following each presentation is a 3 minute 20 second question and answer session where the audience has the opportunity to ask the presenter questions.

This edition will start at 6pm, featuring 8 presenters on topics ranging from building sand sculptures to changing Bermuda. Not only will this be the first time that the event will be held at Young Men’s Social Club, it will also be the first time that a live band will be performing, adding another level of excitement to the event. The band will play at the beginning of the evening and then again during the intermission.

The venue is a short skip and jump for those working in Hamilton thus a large crowd is expected. In another first for Pechakucha Bermuda, the event will be outside, weather-permitting, with a large screen under a large tent. Young Men’s Social Club will have dinner and refreshments available for purchase for the night.

There is no cover charge but donations will be accepted to support the Young Men’s Social Club facilities.
