At PechaKucha Springfield #9 on February 10 at The Moxie, nine people will tackle the 20×20 challenge to creatively present topics related directly, culturally, or only remotely related to Climate Change.

Drawing its name from the Japanese term for conversation, the 20 x 20 format keeps ideas moving at a rapid pace. Presenters have 20 images and 20 seconds per image, a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds, to tell their story. PechaKucha Night is an event to share ideas and experiences in an open source environment. The idea is to come away from the event with a greater perspective and richer ideas, but most importantly, to enjoy oneself in the process.

This is a non-profit free community event — donations to The Moxie for their digital projector upgrade are appreciated. There will be time for networking and casual conversation at intermission. Please invite your creative friends!
