Out of 502 cities around the world that host Pecha Kucha Nights bringing together creatives from all walks of life. Providence Pecha Kucha Night holds the global record for having 36 straight events (one each month) over the past three years–unprecedented!
This also highlights the fact that Providence (and Rhode Island) are home to innovative, creative talent that are not only willing to present, but participate, each month on worldwide stage as part of this movement. Congratulations goes out to Stephanie Gerson (who established Providence Pecha Kucha Night), Michael Gazdacko (who serves as the emcee and coordinator of these events), the Providence Pecha Kucha Night board and all those loyal participants who come out each month to celebrate creativity here. 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. (presentations start promptly at 8:20 p.m.–it’s the official starting time for Pecha Kucha events internationally), at Roots Cafe, 276 Westminster Street, Providence, RI.
Concentric aims to bring together all parties under the banner of design here in the Ocean State. It’s an informal quarterly get together for people interested in design or who work in design (designers, artists, engineers, architects, faculty, students, etc.). Matt Grigsby (of Ecolect) and his incubator space, Anchor, play host this evening and well over 100 professionals and policy makers are planning on attending. 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at Anchor, 42 Rice Street in Providence.
