Get to Know Your Neighbors at Pecha Kucha Night, Blue Hill Peninsula

blue hill -

BLUE HILL, Maine – What do living in a shipping container, designing textiles based on native flora, writing a musical, and studying seahorses in Papua New Guinea all have in common? All of these subjects and more will be covered by members of the Blue Hill Peninsula community at the first Pecha Kucha Night Blue Hill at 8:20 p.m. Wednesday, July 6, at Central Hall in South Blue Hill.

Pecha Kucha, “chit chat” in Japanese, was started by a group of designers in Japan to share their work in a very short format. This format of 20 slides at 20 seconds per slide is meant to keep talks moving a rapid but engaging pace. Since 2003, Pecha Kucha events have turned into an international phenomenon. In Maine, events have been held in Stonington, Camden, Rockland, Bangor, Portland and now Blue Hill.

The Blue Hill Pecha Kucha Nights will be informal & fun gatherings where the community gets together to listen to talks on ideas, work, thoughts, hobbies – just about anything really, in the Pecha Kucha 20×20 format. Before and after the presentation there will be time to mingle and take refreshment. Think of Pecha Kucha as a unique way to get to know the fantastic people of the Blue Hill Peninsula.

Blue Hill Peninsula’s first Pecha Kucha will feature: Abby Barrows, Lauren Reiter, Eric Blake, Nico Jenkins, Jen Sansosti, Trevor Seip, Nathan Rutenbeck, Jessica Kerwin Jenkins, and Ayelet Waldman presenting on a wide range of subjects that promise to entertain. Light refreshment is provided and the event is BYOB. There is a suggested donation of $5 to cover costs.
