Pecha Kucha Night Volume III is this Tuesday May 13 and taking place at 34 NW 8th Avenue, on the corner space of NW 8th and Couch.
Doors will open at 7:30, and the event begins at 20:20 (8:20 pm).
Pecha Kucha, (which is Japanese for ‘the sound of conversation’), was devised by Tokyo based architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham (Klein Dytham architecture) and has spread to numerous cities throughout the world, including Berlin, Bangkok, Los Angeles, Prague, and New York, to name but a few. It is a cross-disciplinary event that creates a forum for young designers, architects and artists to meet, network, and to show and discuss their work in public. Entry is free and open to the public with a suggested sliding scale donation at the door.
Presenters are allowed 20 images, shown for 20 seconds each - giving 6 minutes & 40 seconds per presentation. This allows the audience to experience a diverse group of speakers in a relatively short space of time. The theme of Pecha Kucha Night Vol III is Projection.
After the presentations, the evening will continue with drinks and music.
