A Merry PechaKucha Christmas

Let’s have a Merry PechaKucha Christmas.

The other day I wrote about how I’m not very Christmas-y here in Japan, but we’ve decided to have a bit of Christmas fun with this month’s PechaKucha Night here in Tokyo. We usually skip December — so many people are away — but this year we decided to do an event, and it will happen a bit earlier than usual — not on the last Wednesday, but rather this Wednesday (December 19) — so that we can beat Christmas.

You can expect a regular night of PechaKucha presentations, but we’re also going to have a few Christmas-related ones, as well as some fun with the atmosphere — I’m putting together a Christmas playlist, and the walls will be on fire (or at least covered in video of yule logs) — and a special drink or two on the menu. And yes, we’ll have a “PechaKucha Mix” improv presentation, and it will be festive.

Oh, and I’m going to present too.

When I was back home in August for a visit I ended up taking part in my hometown’s PechaKucha Night series, and did a presentation that tries to explain what I’ve been up to these last 15 years (since coming to Asia). I’ll be doing that presentation again.

So PechaKucha Night Vol. 98 (and here’s our Facebook event page), at our loving home ofSuperDeluxe as always, with doors opening at 19:00, presentations starting at 20:20, and a door charge of 1000 yen.

And this week will also see another VERY big development in PechaKuchaland. More on that soon…
