Mark your calendar for a back to back night of End of Summer FUN.

<--break->

Join us on TuesdaySeptember 18th for two SCC events—please come to one or both!  Our Annual Picnic and our first ever PechaKucha Night.

5:30-7:30pm Annual Summer Picnic. This will be held at the brand-new Bow Market, right behind our office. This is a family friendly event—we’ll have food, activities, music, and it’s always a great chance for our members to hang out informally—we promise, no flip charts involved!  RSVP to: jlotti@somervillecdc.org. 

8pm:  PechaKucha Night!  We’ll head next door to Remnant Brewery for some raucous, visual fun. 

What is a PechaKucha Night? PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, vacation shots — just about anything, really — in the PechaKucha 20×20 format (20 slides, 20 seconds each). This concept has been spreading internationally.  SCC has been selected to serve as the official PechaKucha host for the city of Somerville. 

Our theme for this first PechaKucha Night is:  Trial and Error.

Want to present?  All it takes is gathering 20 slides to tell  your own story, through images, of Trial and Error—this could be anything from your attempt to grow a garden, teach a kid how to tie their shoes, pass zoning reform in Somerville, start a business—you name it!  

Or just come and watch!

For more information and/or to sign up, contact Meridith: mlevy@somervillecdc.org –please put PechaKucha into subject line.  Or call Meridith: 617-410-9911 by September 10th.

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.
