The art of concise presentations.
PechaKucha Night, now in over 700 cities, was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
Join us for the inaugural Pecha Kucha Night in Boone, NC!
Join us for a night of sharing ideas: June 23, 2014.
We’re excited to introduce Pecha Kucha Night: Boone, NC. PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps — just about anything, really — in the PechaKucha 20×20 format: 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide.
How can I participate?
There are two ways to participate in Pecha Kucha nights, and both are just as fun!
First, you can present. Who can present? Anyone with something interesting to share with other people! To apply as a presenter, click here and tell us about your idea.
Second, you can attend a Pecha Kucha night event! As an attendee, there are a few things that you should expect: 1. hearing creative ideas, 2. meeting cool people, 3. enjoying a frosty beverage.

The Dude Abides: The Big Lebowski on Life, the Universe and Everything
Jason Reagan is an innovative professional with 18 years of combined experience in administration, management (retail/media/educational), communications, marketing and information technology. The Coen Brother's 1998 film The Big Lebowski has become a cult classic and a lasting cultural icon, spawning numerous Lebowski Fests, a new lingo and even a religion (Dudeism). Why?
