PechaKucha St. Joeseph/Benton Harbor has been bringing local creatives to center-stage for 5 years in 2020, and Volume 19 will kick off the new year with a bang! Whether you have been to all 19 volumes or this is your first, this fun and communal evening spent engaging with local artists and community members is sure to enlighten your evening.


PechaKucha 20X20, conceived by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham in Tokyo, is an international phenomenon taking place regularly in over 1,000 cities around the world, and attended by more than 250,000 people annually. PechaKucha has been described as the world's biggest physical social network. The key to the success is the simple format where presenters only get 20 images shown for 20 seconds each -- this gives anyone a chance to present their recent project or passion.


Many cities often lack spaces where creative people can share their work, so PechaKucha is about exposing the hidden creativity in a city. PechaKucha nights are organized by local passionate and enthusiastic people with backgrounds in many creative fields.


Doors open at 6 PM, with the first presenter beginning promptly at 7 PM.It is encouraged to arrive early and enjoy good company (and the cash bar!) at a $3 suggested donation. The presenters atPechaKucha 20x20 Volume 18 are:
