Join us for Volume 27 of PechaKucha Night Portland on October 2nd, 2018 as we return to Holocene for a night of community building, creative presentations and joyous surprises.

Volume 27 will explore the theme :: Happy Place. Whether it be a physical location, a space in one’s mind, a lifelong collection or hobby, what is it that makes you feel magical, calm, lit up and alive? What is your happy place?

Our unique blend of speakers will share what the phrase "Happy Place" means to them. From secret locations to favorite sights, odd collections and new-found passions; hear the true stories of what Portlander’s do to celebrate, escape, recharge and ponder. And to make it extra interesting, we have defined “Happy Place” a something that carries with it no monetary incentive or a future wish to make money. This is pure euphoria.

PECHA KUCHA Night PDX vol. 28 - Childhood Stories
For Volume 28 we are going to travel back in time to revisit our childhoods – that special period that most everyone couldn’t wait to escape, only to consistently desire to have back.

From bell bottoms to slap bracelets, first loves to first fights, and make-believe opportunities to real-life possibilities, which moments imprinted on you? Which patterns of behavior shaped you into the adult you are today? How is your work greatly influencing or being influenced by the next generation?

We’ll learn the foundational stories of some of the area's most interesting thinkers and doers. First businesses, early talents, defining experiences, greatest influences, and revealing habits – they’re all fair game. The act of traveling back can help illuminate the way forward. Join us on the journey.
