Pecha Kucha Columbus will present its next event on Thursday, November 8 at artist community 400 West Rich in Franklinton ( Festivities kick off at 7:00 p.m. with live music by Sean Gardner (Winter Makes Sailors) and presentations begin at 7:30.

Each speaker will follow the international Pecha Kucha format of showing 20 images and speaking about each image for 20 seconds. Presenters include architect Michael Bongiorno with DesignGroup; Eriyah Flynn from Vegan Connection; Catherine Girves of Pedal Instead; Max Ink with Blink Comics; poet Paula Lambert; rogue comedian Jay Schmidt; and Amy Spears from Ohio Roller Girls. Presenters are subject to change. Pecha Kucha is about sharing passion and creativity, and is not a forum for sales pitches, commercial presentations, or self-promotional material.

This event will run in tandem with the November Mixer for the Central Ohio Chapter of the American Planning Association, a nonprofit organization that advances the art and science of good planning by creating strong communities.

Food trucks will sell refreshments, as organized by Dinin’ Hall — a street food hub located at the southeast corner of 400 West Rich. Scott Vayo will deejay the event.

The suggested donation is $2 per person, benefiting Pecha Kucha Columbus. Attendees are encouraged to bring folding chairs. Free parking is available in the lot just east of the building and along Lucas Street. Visit for a map of 400 West Rich. Carpooling is encouraged.

About Pecha Kucha
Pecha Kucha Night was devised and shared by Klein Dytham architecture. It was founded in Tokyo in 2003 as a way for designers to meet and share their work in public, and has morphed into a massive celebration with events in 570 cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for “the sound of chitchat,” it rests on a simple and momentum-driven presentation format: 20 images x 20 seconds. Pecha Kucha Columbus was formed by a group of designers and community members in February of 2007.
