Tonight: PechaKucha Vol.20
@ the Gladstone Hotel, Melody Bar
Tues. Jan. 22nd, 2013. Doors Open at 8pm
It appears that tickets are Sold Out on the Eventbrite page for tonight's PechaKucha, at the Gladstone Hotel, however, I think it is definitely worth it if you still wanna try to score some tickets at the door. Here is some more info on tonight's speakers and the PechaKucha series.
Originally founded in Tokyo in 2003, Pechakucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together to share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps and just about anything really - in the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format.
PechaKucha Toronto is the official chapter of the PechaKucha Organization, a volunteer-run organization with regular events spanning 600 cities around the world.
Come join us at the Gladstone Hotel's Melody Bar tonight, to celebrate the 20th edition of our PechaKucha Night Toronto!
The number 20 is a special number for the PechaKucha family, and the age of 20 is also a turning point for Japanese people. In Japanese culture, 20 is the age when they legally become an adult, also known as 'Coming of Age'.
To celebrate, PechaKucha Toronto's 'Coming of Age', we want to make this a very special evening. There will be giveaway's, snacks and even cupcakes.
All advance ticket holders will be welcome an hour early (7pm) to enjoy some snacks, mingle and meet people before the evening begins.
