Another great opportunity to listen to entertaining presentations on a variety of topics, presented in a quick, easy-to-digest format, as the 19th Volume of the PechaKucha Night Bermuda will be on Thursday, June 22nd.
PechaKucha Nights were started in Japan and have a 20×20 presentation format where each speaker shows 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. 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 40 second Q&A session with the audience.
Doors open at 6.30pm and presentations begin at 7pm. This will take place at Warwick Workman’s Club, where there will be a cash bar and food available to purchase.
Admission is free however donations are welcomed and all are invited.
