PechaKucha Night @ Providence Improv Guild
Nov 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
PechaKucha Night @ Providence Improv Guild | Providence | Rhode Island | United States

Announcing the 127 PechaKucha night in Providence!

This month we’re partnering up with our friends at the Providence Improv Guild in the Southside Cultural Center.

For our theme, we’re calling back to the classic phrase “When Pigs Fly”.
What ‘impossible’ thing in the past is possible now?
What larger than life story do you have?
What creation did you make that pushed you to discover things you didn’t know you had?

Remember, themes can be taken as strictly or loosely as you please, including not at all! That’s right, as long as you have something to share, we want to hear it.

For anyone who’s paying attention to the nitty gritty, you are correct that we are not doing the last Wednesday of this month. The way the calendar lands, October – December will all be a week earlier than our normal schedule so we don’t impede on your Holiday plans.

As always, PechaKucha Night is free and all are welcome. We will be accepting voluntary $2 donations to help fund the global PechaKucha movement and your local chapter.
