Pecha Kucha events really uplift the spirit here in Northeast Ohio - and help me forget the corruption - this installment takes place at the West Side Market.  Kudos to Michael Christoff - and other design locals active in improving the climate here in NEO.


PechaKucha Night Cleveland Volume 19

THIS Friday, August 23rd, 2013

(“Doors open” @7:00, Presentations begin 8:30pm) Rain or Shine*


In a SHORT 5 days PKN will be taking over West 24th street, sitting in the shadow of the West Side Market in Ohio City. In the event of rain, PKN will take place in the Tasting Room of Great Lakes Brewery, just down the street*. (Map attached) Please keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter for the announcement of whether or not we will be on West 24th or in the Great Lakes Tasting Room. We will make the announcement by 1pm on Friday, and really, if you show up to West 24th on Friday and we aren’t there, we are in the tasting room; just walk on down.


The list of presenters will not disappoint and the beverages being served will be some of the best in Cleveland (beers from Market Garden Brewery or Great Lakes Brewery depending on rain or shine). We could not be more excited for Volume 19 and hope you will help spread the word about these amazing presenters. As always, each presenter will get to show 20 images of their work, with each image pre-timed to 20 seconds per image.  While PKN19 is free and open to the public, we never mind the occasional $5 donation for our outdoor events to help subsidize some of the misc. equipment/permit costs. 


*If it rains and we end up in the Great Lakes Tasting Room, we will be limiting entry to 200 people. We encourage guests that do not get in at first to return at the break (9:20pm) to see if any spots have opened up. Typically quite a few spots will open up at the break.

·         Faith McFluff  - Hula Hoop instructor and performer at Cleveland Exotic Dance
