About Nerd Nite

Nerd Nite is “the Discovery Channel with beer”, a worldwide monthly event series that mixes presentations, performances, trivia, demos, music, and of course drinking. Nerd Nite Tokyo events are held in English.

「Nerd Nite東京」は、 毎月行われる会でTEDみたいな講演を3つ聞けますが、TEDと違って、リラックスした空間で飲みながらプレゼンを楽しみます!

テーマは科学研究、技術、美術、歴史などなど、毎月変わりますので、新しい人と話を色々発見できる場です!発表と質疑応答は英語でやりますが、もちろん日本人の方も大歓迎なのでぜひNerd Nite東京へご参加ください!

Get involved (we want you!)

If you are interested in presenting or volunteering, send us an email (tokyo@nerdnite.com), message us on Facebook (fb.com/nerdnitetokyo) or send a DM on Twitter (@nntokyo). You do not have to be a (science) presentation pro! Anyone — scientists, engineers, artists, makers, hackers, historians, science fans or storytellers — can give a talk at Nerd Nite about their own projects or just anything they find cool. Our past speakers include a medieval sword expert, artificial intelligence researchers, a hackerspace guru, a videogame artist and a nuclear physicist.

Nerd Nite Tokyo is a non-profit endeavor and everyone involved is a volunteer. Money raised goes towards swag for the audience, drinks for the speakers, equipment for the show, and to support the non-profit Yokohama Theatre Group. Our venue is kindly provided by Nagatacho GRID.
