Berkshire Museum will wrap up a successful year of being the first and only PechaKucha venue in the Berkshires with a Halloween-themed PechaKucha Night. The fourth installment of this “20×20” event will be held on Tuesday, November 13, at 7-ish p.m. with presentations scheduled to start around 7:20 p.m. The previous date of October 30 had to be cancelled and rescheduled because of Hurricane Sandy (who is apparently not fond of Halloween nor PechaKuchas).
To resume this year’s Halloween festivities, anyone who attends PKN wearing a costume will get in for free. Museum members also get in for free, general admission is $5. Tickets are available in advance by calling 413.443.7171, ext.10, or by visiting the Museum. During the event, there will be snacks, as well as free beer donated by Wandering Star Craft Brewery, but donations will be accepted and will go towards the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
This fourth outing of this popular worldwide event features a series of presentations, each consisting of 20 slides shown for 20 seconds (thus it’s nickname, 20×20), totaling 6 minutes, 40 seconds of talking time. The first three PechaKucha nights yielded presentations on Captain Ahab’s adventures, Pinterest-inspired literature, geek wisdom, design do’s and duds, and even a hilarious improv session.
