Pecha Kucha Night is BACK for round two! And this time SEED will be included in the line-up!
PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative locals get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps - just about anything really, in the Pecha Kucha 20x20 format.
Pecha Kucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for 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.
The line up for Pecha Kucha Night Taos #2 is:
1. Agnes Chavez: "STEMArts: (x)tree project"
2. Paul O’Connor: "Taos Characters"
3. Nettayah Ben-Attar: "From Performance to Parchment"
4. Siena Sanderson, Mandy Stapleford, Katie Woodall and Claire Coté: “SEED 3”.
5. Sam Lambie: "Photography"
6. Carrie Field, Mike Malixi & Daryl Black- “Taos Tango”
~ Intermission: Live music by Tina Collins and Her Pony ~
7. Marcy Andrews: "Midwifing the Midwife"
8. Suki and Genevieve: "Shree Yoga Taos"
9. Christian Ristow: "Robots in the Dust."
10. David Costanza: "Documenting the Song Writing Process"
11. Christina Sporrong: "Large Scale Interactive Sculpture"
The evening’s music will be provided by Tina Collins and Her Pony, and our host, The Harwood Museum of Art, will offer a wine reception before the event and at intermission where there will be plenty of time for socializing, drinking, and “chit chat” - creating great opportunities to network and to meet our local “creatives”!
Why Pecha Kucha Nights? The founders have discovered that most cities - not just Tokyo have virtually no public spaces where people can show and share their work in a relaxed way. If you’re out on the mesa or a lone artist in the sage brush - where can you show? In this age of digital everything, nothing is better than face to face community gatherings where we can share and inspire our community. PechaKucha 20x20 is the perfect platform to show and share one’s creative spririt.
