Join AIA Pittsburgh and AIGA Pittsburgh at Bricolage Theater on Thursday, July 17 and witness the creative presentation style of PechaKucha! Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails while partaking in inspiring conversations and lasting connections.
PKN is the one and only event for local creatives to meet and network while presenters share their stories, collections, products or work in 6 minutes and 40 seconds of exquisitely matched words and images. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation (“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.
Admission: $15 at the door
hors d'oeuvres and cocktails included!
Interested in Presenting?
If so, then here’s what you’ll need to do…
• Prepare 3-4 images that best represent the content of your proposed presentation. It can be on absolutely anything!
• Include your name, and the title and a brief outline of the presentation.
• Compile a brief artist statement, or bio, or resume, or CV to be used for promotional purposes.
• Send all of the above to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, July 3rd.
If selected to present, you will need to prepare 20 slides, which will be displayed for only 20 seconds per slide (20 images x 20 seconds). The slides keep moving, so you only have a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds to share your work. It’s fast and fun, and heckling from the audience is encouraged, all in good humor of course!
