Frequently Asked Questions

What is Nerd Nite?

Nerd Nite allows people to share their passions with others in a social setting. The general format is two presenters give a talk for 20 minutes and have a question and answer period after. There is a visual element to the presentation. This is often in the form of a powerpoint presentation or slide show but there are many creative ways to show what you care about!

How do I become a presenter?

Email kevin@gatewaycityarts.com with a brief description of what you’d like to share.

What kind of topics can I present on?

Almost anything! Some topics have been about the first imaging of a black hole, birding in downtown Holyoke, brutalist web design, and surviving a plane crash. Give us a shot and we’ll figure it out! 

What do I need to present?

A deep, abundant passion for your subject! We require some form of visual element. This is a presentation, not a lecture. While most presentations are powerpoint focused, we have had demonstrations from dancing to lasers. As long as it fits the space, is safe, and legal, you can do what you like!

You said powerpoint. Do I need to bring my own laptop and projector?

We have an in-house projector and sound system. If you don’t have a laptop we can provide one. We ask that you send us the powerpoint at least a day ahead so we can make sure everything works.

What's all this about beer and socializing?

Nerd Nite Holyoke will take place in our Divine Theater. The bar is staffed and you are encouraged to get your favorite beverage. Tip heavy! Additionally, Judd’s Bar & Restaurant is open across the hall. Show up early and have dinner. Or stay late and have dinner. Have dinner!
