Pecha Kucha Night-Jan. 7th

A special invitation to Pecha Kucha Night:

Pecha Kucha --Japanese for the sound of conversation-- taps into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown. The brainchild of Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, Klein Dytham architecture, Tokyo, began in 2003 as a forum for designers to meet, network, and show their current work to the public, and has since spread to over 150 cities across the world.Organized and launched in DC in March 2007, Capitol Pecha Kucha promotes local DC creatives working in all media including the visual arts, architecture, design, music, fashion, film, and literature.

The Pecha Kucha Night patented presentation system allows presenters 20 images each shown for 20 seconds - giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. Talks are concise, the interest level is constant, and more presenters receive the opportunity to share their work.

Please join us Wednesday, January 7th for Capitol Pecha Kucha Volume 6 which focuses on Change, specifically individuals who are addressing meaningful Global Issues in their work. The timing couldn't be better for this event and we are excited to have this platform to highlight these individuals.
