Pecha Kucha 15 was held Tuesday night at the super sweet, totally rad location of The Cistern Yard at the College of Charleston. This historic location was transformed into a buzzing meeting place for the creative community of Charleston. The College of Charleston, specifically the Department of Computer Science, has played an integral part in making Pecha Kucha Charleston a premier event where creative ideas are shared, minds are inspired, and business connections are made. Pecha Kucha is certainly one of the many reasons that Charleston is becoming well known in recent years throughout the country for its talented artists, software developers, chefs, entrepreneurs, and more!
The weather Tuesday night was perfect for a Fall evening in Charleston. The fun began even before the sun set with food, drinks, and mingling. By the time dark came, all 600 attendees were ready to go for a night full of inspiring ideas.
Special thanks to all those involved in making this event beyond spectacular: Charleston Creative Parliament, College of Charleston Office of the President, College of Charleston Department of Computer Science (Students, Faculty, and Staff), College of Charleston Physical Plant, Aramark at the College of Charleston, College of Charleston Audio Visual Support, College of Charleston Office of Sustainability, Duvall Catering, Westbrook Brewing, and Production Design Associates.
