Four times a year PechaKucha Sheffield showcase the well-known and as yet unknown talent from across the region; bringing together the Creative, Digital and Business communities for a evening that entertains, educates and inspires.
‘The Sheffield Way’ they have developed over the last 5 years differs from a traditional PK Night; curated around a theme and incorporating Live Music, Entertainment and Short Videos…making for an evening of fast-paced, engaging talks that give the audience an experience like no other!
Since April 2010 they have put on 24 events at 21 different venues across Sheffield, showcasing over 180 speakers to a regular audience of 150-200…and the really great bit...the whole team give their time and expertise for free! Every show is delivered on goodwill and through in-kind sponsorship of venues, equipment and resources!7
So what is @PKNSheff?
It's like clubbing for thinkers...
…inspiration for the creative class…
...a business social that's more a night out...
...it'll get your heart skipping and your mind racing!
Tickets for the next event are available
on the PKNSheff Website
At each SOUP there are 4 shortlisted x 4 minute pitches from local people, followed by up to 4 questions from the crowd. Each audience member donates (a minimum) £5 entry fee for which they get a vote, soup, bread and an evening’s entertainment…and the winning pitch takes 100% of the door money at the end of the night.
Over the last two years 11 projects have won over £5,000 of funding and over 50 projects have been supported by Pennie and Jonny with training and through social media, and by our amazing audience in all sorts of ways.
