Pecha Kucha pronounced various ways- to keep yourself out of trouble “PK Night” is fine, comes to South Park tonight.
It’s FREE! and fun.
To answer the pronunciation question, it literally means “chit chat” in Japanese, I used to turn to the world-renowned experts on pronunciation from Sesame Street with this fun video:
But there is another video that claims this is wrong- I skipped the beginning – where he nails the video above- and says it’s PE-CHA KUCH HA. All evenly accented.
Here is from the PK official site-
PK Dayton stays home. We’ve got one more volume before the year is out, and we’re holding it at our place, Historic South Park. That’s where Matt, Shayna and Jill live.
Thursday, Dec. 18th, 7:30pm relax with us between the parties, hangovers, cracked nuts, shopping frenzies and general holi-daze. And yes, you are welcome to lounge in your silk jammies, like this South Park Lady.
Volume 21 has 8 great 20×20 visions–imaginative artists, provocative thinkers, inspiring outsiders and creative stuff that’s impossible to categorize. We’ll be at Hope Lutheran Church, 500 Hickory St., Dayton. (Careful not to spill beer in the sanctuary). Enter at Hickory & Perrine–park east of the church or in the Emerson Academy lots on Hickory.
Special beer break treat! Dayton’s Original Pizza Factory is bringing us a tasting of their specialty pies. You will love!
Thank you to PKDayton Vol 21 sponsors Dragonfly Editorial and Pizza Factory.
Donations accepted- and food items are being collected as well.
So far- the only announced speakers are my neighbor Bridget Bogel who is a phenomenal artist who teaches at Sinclair, and Amelia “smart mouth” Robinson from the DDN.
Parking is available in the big lots of Emerson Academy if the church lot fills.
These are always a lot of fun- see you there tonight!
