PechaKucha at Revolution Hall

PechaKucha Rev Hall 2018-10-24 poster

The next local PechaKucha night will be at Revolution Hall in Troy October 24. Tickets are $15 and available online.

The lineup of speakers and very short talks is below. Topics range from Schenectady, to hair, to life, to giving.

The night is being hosted by the Tech Valley Young Professionals Network. It starts at 5:30 pm that Wednesday.

PechaKucha?
It's a format in which the speaker gets to talk along with 20 slides, each slide only on display for 20 seconds. (Each talk is just short of 7 minutes total.) So, it moves quickly and it forces people to get right to the point. It can be a fun way to hear from a about a bunch of different people about a bunch of different ideas in one sitting.

(If this sounds familiar, the Opalka Gallery in Albany has been hosting PechaKucha nights a few times a year.)
