Come enjoy Orlando's 3rd PechaKucha Night! The location is Blank Space Gallery & Lounge, across the street from the downtown library.

The cover charge for this event is a low $5 -- Orlando's best entertainment value!

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in 2003 as a way for young designers and architects to meet, network, and show their work in public. Since then, it has turned into a global presentation phenomenon, with events happening in hundreds of cities worldwide—inspiring creative people of all kinds.

Drawing its name from the Japanese term for “chit chat,” PechaKucha rests on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes every presentation concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.

Community or Meetup: 
Aug 19 2011 8:00a - 11:00a

Likemind is before work (8AM), it happens downtown, and everyone is welcome. Bring a few friends, get some coffee, and tell us what's on your mind.

We've been having some healthy turnout in the past few months. If you're getting something out of this event, please invite some friends.

Since Urban ReThink is open now, and the Virgin Olive Market is serving coffee and food, let's meet up in Thornton Park. Street parking is abundant, so I don't want to hear any parking complaints. Also, meeting in downtown is part of the spirit of this event.
Likemind Orlando
Groups in 60+ other cities all over the world will be getting together for conversations with their community - sure, they may not have 2+ years of these events behind them, but we do.

More than 3 years ago, I heard about these two marketing guys / geeks from New York who had started an event they held on Friday mornings for coffee and conversation. The first few were just the two of them, but as they invited people and the word got out, it grew until it started getting on the radar all over the world. Now Likemind happens in scores of cities on every continent, and Orlando has been on that list almost since the beginning.

Show and Tell, for adults! Show us a project you've been working on, your favorite book, your wallet, your new haircut, an abstract idea you think we should all know about, a love letter, a scarf, a new gadget, or tell a great story from another creative community. Let us get inside the story, or see behind the process, introduce us to something new and amazing.

This will be our fifth month of Show and Tell - we have had some really amazing presenters in the first few months, and I am optimistic about the possibilities for this event in the future.

Show and Tell was proud to be featured in the Orlando Sentinel's Calendar last month:
