Berkshire Museum debuts PechaKucha Night in Pittsfield – 20 slides x 20 seconds each [Berkshire on Stage]

It’s the community participation event that is sweeping the world, and for the first time in Western Massachusetts, the Berkshire Museum will present a PechaKucha Night on March 8, 2012 at 7 pm. It is the sort of welcome creative event that keeps the city of Pittsfield’s midwinter activities bubbling with new things to do, new places to go. By now, who hasn’t heard about and made plans to attend this month’s exciting 10×10 on North (link) Winter Festival beginning Thursday, February 16 and running until the 26th. For that there are ten days of ten different events.

Pecha Kucha, on the other hand, is (to start) a one night event that features a series of presentations, each consisting of 20 slides shown for 20 seconds each, totaling a talking time of 6 minutes, 40 seconds. The goal is to bring prominent and up-and-coming creative minds together for a night of inspiration, networking, and fun.

Because of the 20 slides for 20 seconds each format, some are calling the Museum’s PechaKucha night 20×20 on South, because of their location. Can 30×30 on East be squeezed in before Spring arrives?
