2nd Annual Cake Party and PechaKucha Festivities!

On December 13th, SCC hosted a double-header evening of festivities:  the Cake Party and our 2nd PechaKucha .  First, our second annual Cake Party!  This is an end-of year event to bring members together to enjoy a social evening, and to celebrate the work of this past year.  We also very much appreciate the donations we received to support our work!  We’ve started a tradition to raffle off cakes at the event.  Thanks to all of you who contributed gorgeous cakes to the party.  The winners left the party with cakes and smiles.

Immediately following the Cake Party we walked down our back stairs to go to the Remnant Brewery at Bow Market, where we held Volume 2 of the PechaKucha  Night. That night we learned about food recovery, we heard about the travails of home ownership, and we shared a few toasts.

What is a PechaKucha?

“PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps — just about anything, really — in the PechaKucha 20×20 format (20 slides, 20 seconds each). Every PechaKucha Night city is hosted by a local organizer, who has an annual Handshake Agreement with PechaKucha HQ to run their event series. This ensures that each PechaKucha Night is relevant to their city- and can create a unique platform to uncover that city’s creativity.”

SCC will continue to host PechaKucha nights (2 more between now and June), so keep your ears open—it’s a lot of fun to present or to just come!

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
