PechaKucha Night Cleveland - Volume 12 at the top of the Higbee Building, I have been invited to participate and am proud to present the first public viewing of my new exhibition: Sacred Treasures of Thunder Dragon, A photographic study of Bhutan’s fragile culture, people and country.
This is a great event that is happening in Cleveland and it’s FREE!
I’ve heard a lot about Pechakucha over the years, it was devised in Tokyo in 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, now happening in over 400 cities around the world, including our cool town.
PechaKucha is the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it’s presentation format is based on a simple idea where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds, talk along with the images and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
So, Join us at the top of the Higbee Building; the 10-story eastern wing of the Terminal Tower complex that sits right on Public Square. On Friday, April 8th, 2011, at 8:20pm, with your attendance, we will bring back Higbee's for a night of PechaKucha as we head to the 10th floor.
To get into the space you MUST enter off Prospect Avenue the entrance is a few doors east of the entrance to Tower 230 Bar and Grille. Entrance will have PechaKucha Night Posted on it! For Volume 12 we've got local artists, an architect, a fashion and technology designer, an urban designer, a visiting artist from Israel, a motorcycle designer, a group telling the story of how shots have shaped their lives, a photographer, a sculptor and a graphic designer. These 12 creatives will present their work, ideas, and obsessions in a series of 400 second long presentations; each person showing 20 images of their work that have been pre-timed to 20 seconds per image.
PenchaKucha Volume 11 audience maxed out the House of Blues Cambridge Room and had to turn people away. For Volume 12, we've doubled our capacity limit by the venue selection, but HIGHLY recommend you show up early so that you do not get left out in the cold!:)
The doors and the bars open at 7:00pm and the presentations, as always, begin at 8:20pm.
DONT FORGET TO INVITE FRIENDS!
