Friday evening PechaKucha returns to inspire and motivate in under 7minutes. PechaKucha – which mean to chit chat in Japanese – delivers short sharp talks from a variety of speakers. This session at Club SAW Gallery features 9 speakers ranging from artists, the Director of Operations for a media company, an anti-bully advocate, and more. It’s fun, informative and smart. 7-9PM, FREE (registration required), Club SAW.
