On June 24th, I will be presenting at Pecha Kucha Dallas -- 6pm at the Dallas Center for Architecture. The event is free, although a $5 contribution is suggested (which means the event costs $5... I don't know why people call events free and then have suggested contributions). Either way, it'll be worth every penny. So, no worries. The Dallas Center for Architecture is located at 1909 Woodall Rodgers Frwy, Suite 100 in Dallas. RSVP here: http://pkn3dallas.eventbrite.com
Confirmed presenters include artist Nancy Rebal, writer David Hopkins (that's me), architect Jonathan Brown, artist Scott Horn, artist Brad Goldberg, furniture maker Sean Springer, paper conservator Tish Brewer, toymaker Edward Ruiz, artist Joyce Martin, artist Brad Ford Smith and muralist Chris Arnold.
About Pecha Kucha Dallas (I'm taking this directly from the press release):
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
Expect something fun and crazy from me. Hopefully. I'm working on my presentation right now.
