We are pleased to announce our next PechaKucha Night PDX on Tuesday, June 13, at Holocene!

Our presenters will unpack the night’s theme of Needs Versus Desires – the never-ending dance between that which is crucial for survival and the things that make being alive fulfilling. If the line between the two is often blurred, how do we define them? Is desire the passion that keeps one going and achieving goals, or does it denote the vices of greed and materialism? Do needs only exist on the most basic of levels (think: food, clothing and shelter) or are they sometimes more indiscernible? And what are things you think you want but, at the end of the day, you may be better off without?

Please join our PechaKucha speakers and volunteers on June 13 while enjoying handcrafted cocktails, wine, and beer, along with a live set by DJ Bobby and a PechaKucha Night PDX first: a live musical performance by Portland’s own May Arden!

We are excited to announce our next PechaKucha Night PDX on Tuesday, December 12th, as we take over Holocene for a full evening of PKN!

This volume is about Unity: Joining forces. Moving together as one. Coalescing. Taking Shape.

As social animals, people require and seek to feel united with each other. We need this to celebrate and grieve, to expand our projects and ideas, to make change that extends beyond ourselves, and for our individual and collective mental health. In today’s divisive climate, this sense of Unity sometimes feels lost – especially during moments when we don’t share beliefs, thoughts, world views, or priorities with those around us.

On December 12th, we will hear from people who are creating, exploring and questioning with Unity in mind; from a world-traveling author, to the local family who is bringing back curiosity one interview at a time, to the musician letting us experience Unity through sound. We will share ideas, connect with one another, yell Bonsaiiiii with our hands in the air (...seriously, we will) and perhaps, we might even Vogue.

Join us on December 12th for Pecha Kucha Night Portland :: Volume 24 :: Unity.
