PechaKucha Night at the MuseumThursday, Nov 3, 6:30pm
Vol. 17 of the Westcott House’s PechaKucha will be held here at the museum. If you haven’t been before, PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps, etc. Anyone can present – this is the beauty of PechaKucha Nights. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for “the sound of chitchat,” it rests on a simple and momentum driven presentation format: 20 images x 20 seconds. The images forward automatically and you narrate – it is that simple. Ever since its launch, PechaKucha Springfield OH has been gaining momentum and today the event attracts a 100+ audience.
Call for Entries
We are looking for presenters who can speak to the subject “American Experience”, as this event coincides with the exhibition currently on display at the Museum entitled “Norman Rockwell: The Man Behind the Canvas,” exploring Rockwell’s influence on the American experience.
Please submit a brief description (approx. 100 words) of your PechaKucha talk subject by Friday, Oct 21 to email@example.com. PechaKucha organizers and SMoA staff will select up to eight presentations for the Nov 3 program. You will be notified by Saturday, Oct 22 whether your proposal was selected.
