Upcoming Dates & Times

An 80-day bike trip with surfboard in search for meaning and remarkable art created during the Holocaust highlight next PK Night at the Ellen

Kory Kirby spent last summer biking down the West Coast towing a surfboard emblazoned with the question: “Why do you exist? He got a lot of fascinating answers.

Dan Lourie tells the story of his remarkable aunt Esther, who was trapped in Lithuania during the Nazi occupation and used her artistic talents to depict Nazi atrocities including a massacre of 9200 Jews in a city square.

Both presentations are part of PechaKucha Night Tuesday, Nov. 7 and Wednesday, Nov. 8 at the Ellen Theatre at PK’s new start time of 6:40 p.m.

Other fascinating presentations include Rob Pudner, who will describe the new fix-it clinics in Bozeman and Belgrade, modeled after a program in Amsterdam; Thomas Schieffer, who will describe a successful journal through PTSD; and Samuel Buenrostro on laughter yoga.

Additional presenters include Peter Costanti on why kids’ forts are better than today’s architecture; Tia Goebel on creating synergy and sparking passion with art; Timothy Tate on the special place of radio station KGLT in the Bozeman community; Jeremy Mistretta on a modern twist on an ancient, Moroccan plaster technique; and Joey Morrison on the capacity for an “average” person to change the world.

Emcee is storyteller, comedian, actor and puppeteer Ryan Cassavaugh.

PechaKucha (peh-chak-cha) offers anyone with a passion or a vision--designers, artists, inventors, architects, adventurers, entrepreneurs—an opportunity to share their ideas with the community during a fast-paced, friendly social get-together. There's just one catch—presenters have only 20 slides x 20 seconds each, a total of 6 minutes, 40 seconds!
