On May 28th – that’s this Wednesday night – PechaKucha returns to Wellington for it’s second Wellington outing.

All you need to do for a great night out is head out to TheNewDowse at 45 Laings Rd in Lower Hutt.

PechaKucha WellingtonPechaKucha Night is an event in which presenters give brief presentations about a topic of their choosing accompanied by 20 images, each of which is shown for 20 seconds – giving a total presentation time of 6 minutes 40 seconds.

Doors open at 7.30 pm and the whole thing kicks off at 8.20pm. The bar is running all night, so you get to hang with great people, hear about some inspirational stuff and have some fun, all at the same time.
