Pechakucha Volume 18: A conversation with Death...

Prepare yourself for a tough topic: Death. We are usually inclined to avoid discussing such a sensitive subject. We are opening the doors on this conversation with Volume 18. Join us for an evening of outstanding presentations from excellent speakers. Some topics may ber personal, some may be informative. Some topics may make you sad, some may fill you with hope. Join us for this special volume, and be ready for an evening of wonder.

This is a nonprofit event.

20X20: All of the presentations are exactly 20 slides and each slide is timed to exactly 20 seconds for a total of 6 minutes and 30 seconds. It's the PechaKucha way!

What to expect:

Come to the Silver Spring Civic Building on Friday, December 13, 2019 from 7-9:30PM. Spend the first ~20 minutes chatting with some friends, digging tunes, and enjoying beer, wine and light snacks. Around 7:20PM, we'll have the first half of presenters. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll be full of awe. Intermission. We encourage you to discuss ideas that you heard or considered through the first half. Maybe discuss it with a stranger. We'll have the second half of presenters where you'll go through a similar roller coaster of emotion as before. Afterwards, hang out and chat until we kick you out.
