20X20 Powered by PechaKucha
December 9th, 5-7 pm

PechaKucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each. It was devised in February 2003 by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo’s Klein-Dytham Architecture as a platform for young designers to meet and exchange ideas. Please go to this website for information and sample Pecha Kucha talks- http://www.pechakucha.org/presentations/the-power-of-paper

The format is strictly regulated- 20 slides for 20 seconds each, for a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds. It’s challenging and fun. Our media expert, Gary Grissom will coordinate the technical end of things. A practice session will be required for first-time presenters.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS - proposals due September 4, 2018

This popular, sell-out event is back for a FOURTH year!  Now’s your chance to be at the podium and share your ideas with a receptive and enthusiastic audience in a fast-paced and fun event.

DVAA invites members and the public to submit a one paragraph proposal for our 2018 20x20 Powered by PechaKucha Night. We are looking for participants who have something to say and who want to take up the PechaKucha challenge!

We are looking for a variety of presentations on practically any topic. This is a chance to tell us about what goes on around your art-making - be it intellectual, historical, experiential context, or a discussion about process, or anything else of interest you would like to share. If you would like to speak about your artwork, think of this opportunity as an enhanced Gallery Talk, or illustrated Artist Statement. Are you investigating and learning about something that excites and/or inspires you? Did you see an exhibition or attend a residency that you would like to tell us about? If you are a curator, here’s your chance to curate and present an “ephemeral, narrated exhibition”.  Please submit your brief written proposal HERE  and then send two sample jpeg images to jarrod@davinciartalliance.org with the subject line "Pecha Kucha proposal 2018."

The submission deadline is September 4, 2018.
