PechaKucha Night Cleveland Volume 27

PechaKucha Night Cleveland (@PKNCLE) is always a good time, so I want to share with you my photos and tweets from PechaKucha Night Cleveland Volume 27 (#PKNCLE27). It took place at the Music Box Supper Club (@MusicBoxCLE) on February 18, 2016.

I don't know if it is possible to capture the full atmosphere of the evening in a blog post. I do hope it will encourage you to go in person to a future event to truly experience it live!

PechaKucha Night

The art of concise presentations.
PechaKucha Night, now in over 800 cities, was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.

For those of you who have never attended, the following official description of the PechaKucha Night Cleveland Volume 27 event gives you an overview of the format. If you know of a creative person who should present at PechaKucha Night Cleveland, please make special note of the email address to get more information.
