PechaKucha Nights are informal, fun gatherings held in more than 900 cities worldwide, where creative people share their ideas, works and thoughts in a 20×20 format; a presentation style with 20 images that advance automatically for 20 seconds each, as the presenter talks along with the images.
Tuesday, July 18 at 7:00 – 9:30 pm
City of Asylum, 40 W North Avenue
Doors open at 5:00 pm
Among the 11 local presenters will be Allegheny West’s own Brian O’Neill, author of the 2009 book The Paris of Appalachia: Pittsburgh in the 21st Century. Brian will talk about the inadvertent plug his book just got from Donald Trump and what has changed about the city since the book was written.
Arrive early for dinner or drinks at Casellua. Enjoy great food, wine and artfully curated cheese plates.
