I just got word from Bentara/WPKN, that Petch Kucha is cancelled tonight due to the weather, we will watch for a rescheduled date.
meet at 5:30 to get a table, the event runs from 7:00 to 8:45
It has been quite some time since we have gone to one of these. Come down and check out the latest ideas of creatives, have a drink, or something to eat while listening. Good PechaKucha presentations are the ones that uncover the unexpected -- unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different. The event is FREE, but you will need funds if you wish to drink or eat. I will be arriving around 5:30 or so to hold some table space, come and join me, table space goes fast, this is a very well attended event so it will be difficult to save space the later you get there.
Autumn Edition presenters will include:
George Kouros on Lawyering Sideways, Bill Neale Manufactures a 20x20, Karyn Gilvarg and Rick Wies on the New Haven Boathouse, Bill Humphries on Biking, RJ Featuring Commissioner Dalton on Feeding People, Ike Lasater on his Road to New Haven from the other side of the world, Rob Gottfried (http://www.robthedrummer.com/) on Drumming and Life, Valerie Belanger on the “Before I Die” Project, Jessica Sack on Art for All and Why I Bought a Camera, and Maryann Ott on The Civil War: Why It Matters at 150. More here soon. PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps -- just about anything, really -- in the PechaKucha 20x20 format.
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
