CALL FOR PROPOSALS
20X20 Powered by PechaKucha
at DaVinci Art Alliance
December 10th, 6:30-8:30pm
This popular, sell-out event is back for a third year!
DVAA invites members and the public to submit a proposal for our 2017 20x20 Powered by PechaKucha Night. We are looking for participants who have something to say and who want to take up the PechaKucha challenge!
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. You’ll need to provide 20 digital images and a compelling story to tell. A practice session will be required for first-time presenters.
We are looking for a variety of presentations on practically any topic, not just your current artwork. 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 a collection of images 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”.
This call is now closed and set in stone, but you should join us to witness these awesome talks by the community of DVAA members!
