PechaKucha20x20, Volume 11, takes place tomorrow at the Parklands at Floyds Fork in the Gheens Foundation Lodge. Bernheim is proud to be one of the organizers of this unique forum for sharing locally grown ideas. Quite simply, it is a presentation format where a presenter shows 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically while the presenter talks along to them.
The first PechaKucha Night was held in February, 2003, in Tokyo, with the idea being that because architects talk too much, as do many creative people, they should be required to present in a format where this won’t be a problem.
Now, PechaKucha Nights are a global thing, happening in over 500 cities, including ours.
Good PechaKucha presentations are the ones that uncover unexpected talent, or unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but each is different and delicious, much like the offerings in a great “box of chocolates.”
Volume 11 is the first event produced under the new guest curator position, currently held by Abbey Smith. Smith will bring her focus on empowering women along with interests in local history, art, spirituality, community activism, and the environment.
Doors open at 7pm on Tuesday and the event starts at 8pm.
