In case you don’t know about Pecha Kucha yet, an excerpt from their website describes it best:

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.

Presenter Line-up:

Michael Goodson Multi-year winner of the privately held invitational Lip-Synco competition will discuss creating award winning lip sync videos, and we’ll be showing some that will destroy your preconceptions of lip sync as an art!

Howard Cooperstein Howard returns with a heartwarming tale of family, hardship, triumph and social media like nothing you’ve heard before.

Maurieen Stakey Area artist Mo will discuss and show her art, everything from comics to magazine covers.

Scott Stiefvater The Divisiveness of Mourning will explore how a family loss challenged and grew the survivors involved.

Mark Jaremko A true renaissance man, Mark explores what it is to be a “maker” in the Silicon Valley, demoing some of his inventions, and providing some guidelines and inspiration for those that may want to take a similar path.

Hope to see you there!
