PechaKucha Night (PKN) returns to the Fleming Museum of Art this Thursday at 6:00 PM. This edition of PKN will be hosted by Mitch Wertlieb of VPR's Morning Edition. Our featured presenters for this volume are:

PechaKucha Night (PKN) is a worldwide phenomenon that began in 2003 in Tokyo. It offers the opportunity for a broad range of participants to present their projects, ideas, and passions at a fun, informal, and fast-paced gathering. Drawing its name from the Japanese word for the sound of "chit chat," PKN uses a quick and concise 20 x 20 presentation format that allows presenters to show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. Presenters describe their project as the images forward automatically.

Join PKN BTV for a take on our community's creative pulse! Drinks and snacks will be on hand. Learn more about PechaKucha at their international website.
