Doors open at 7, the presentations begin at 7:30!
It’s that time again! Dharma Lounge is hosting Pecha Kucha, a gathering of creative and innovative minds to present on a variety of forward thinking topics designed to intrigue and fortify Charlotte’s culture.
From the press kit:
Born in Tokyo a few years ago, “Pecha Kucha” – Japanese for the sound of conversation – is a unique show-and-tell social event where local creatives from all disciplines present 20 slides for 20 seconds each – an exhilarating kaleidoscope of inspirations, ideas and work. It is an opportunity for people in their communities to express their opinions, share their observations and work out ideas, to a diverse and broad audience in a casual supportive social environment, akin to an intellectual happy hour.
There will be 10 presenters, all presenting 20 slides. Each slide will be 20 seconds long. Check out the roster:
- Austin Ballard and Paige Cochran
- Jeff Cravotta
- “El Negrito”
- Valaida Fullwood
- Paul Gibson
- Jack Kirven & Annie Vereen
- Kym Motley
- Nikki Mueller
- Bradley Kirk Turnage
- D. I. von Briesen
