We have signed up for another FOUR PechaKucha Pittsfields! Here are the dates:

PKNP #5 February 19, 2013 (during the 10×10 festival)
PKNP #6 May 16, 2013
PKNP #7 August 13, 2013 (during the WxW festival)
PKNP #8 October 29, 2013 (Halloween, take 2)

What are PechaKucha Nights?  Loosely translating to chit-chat or blah-blah in Japanese, a night consists of a series of PowerPoint presentations, each just 6 minutes and 40 seconds. The catch? Each presentation comprises 20 slides, each projected for only 20 seconds, that progress automatically.

As always — admission is $5, members get in for free. Card-carrying members of Berkshire Young Professionals also get in for free as well as the night’s scheduled speakers. 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.

And as always, if you want to present, shoot us an email! Send it to Craig at clanglois@berkshiremuseum.org with a short description of what you’re interested in talking about (emails of interest are due January 18). No themes for February as of yet, but we may slap on a sweet little Valentine’s ditty for a treat.
