arrivers may have to stand.

New Haven has it's own edition of PechaKucha Night, an event that celebrates creativity and innovation. It was foundedlby designers in Tokyo as a way to share ideas succinctly and creatively. The event has grown to include anyone and everyone in cities around the world; individuals or groups present creative ideas or innovations using 20 images shown for 20 seconds each. The ideas can solve social problems or just be a cool innovation, or new project. Neighbors, colleagues, journalists, designers, architects, social entrepreneurs, and artists have all presented at PechaKucha nights.

    This was my first meetup ever and first pecha kucha ever. It was wonderful to meet you guys, and pecha kucha was very interesting. Chicken skewers at Bentara were great. I am looking forward to doing many more activities with you all and suggesting things to do for everyone. Kudos to the organizer and to all my new friends.

    Note to Margaret and others, this is a public event open to all, so the only thing your RSVPing here for is to hang out with the group. I'm on the waiting list but will be there as I'm presenting! There's a chance this one will be outside, too.
