Milwaukee is full of creative and powerful women doing amazing work. Spend the morning with us and hear some of their stories as NEWaukee hosts our first PechaKucha style program!

PechaKucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each. The format keeps presentations concise and fast-paced. PechaKucha was devised in February 2003 by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo’s Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa), as a way to attract people to SuperDeluxe, their experimental event space in Roppongi, and to allow young designers to meet, show their work, and exchange ideas.
