Fitchburg, MA– PechaKucha Nights/Fitchburg returns on Thursday, February 26 with Vol. 3 at DeStaré Martini Bar, 320 Main Street, Fitchburg. The only PechaKucha night in central Massachusetts is coming back with presenters addressing the theme “Language” in their discussions. The event opens at 8:00 p.m. with presentations scheduled to start at 8:20 p.m. sharp. Admission is free. At this particular event, students can get a 10% discount at Chaibo with their OneCard during PechaKucha.

Confirmed speakers for the February event include Wil Darcangelo, Kenisha Coy, and Eric Boughton. There will even be a sign-language interpreter for the event.

PechaKucha is an open forum of sharing. The atmosphere of PechaKucha is relaxed and features scheduled presenters discussing a topic of their choice around a central theme. Presentations include 20 image slides shown for 20 seconds each, with presentations totaling 6 minutes and 40 seconds of talking time. Scheduled breaks between presentations to allow everyone a chance for conversation, refreshments, to make connections, and to share ideas one-on-one.

PechaKucha Nights/Fitchburg held two events in fall 2014. Upcoming PechaKucha events are slated for spring and summer 2015 with themes still to be chosen. Anyone interested in presenting at future PechaKucha Nights/Fitchburg can sign up here: http:// tinyurl.com/k7zyfdx.

About PechaKucha: PechaKucha is literally translated as “chit chat” or “blah blah” in Japanese. It was created by Klein Dytham architecture in Tokyo in 2003 as an opportunity for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. PechaKucha has since turned into a massive celebration with events happening in 700 cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide.
