PechaKucha 20X20 Volume 16 Hosted at The Livery

Members of the media are cordially invited to attend PechaKucha St. Joseph/Benton Harbor, Volume 16 on Thursday, March 28. Pecha Kucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where 20 images are shown for 20 seconds each, advancing automatically. There are 7 confirmed presenters.

The Whirlpool Creatives Association, Wightman and Associates, Inc, Krasl Art Center and Box Factory for the Arts are collaborating to bring the event to the community. This event provides an excellent photo and video opportunity.
Event Details are as follows:
When: Thursday, March 28, 2019 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Doors Open at 6:00 p.m.

Where: The Livery, 190 5th Street, Benton Harbor, MI 49022

Who: The public is invited and encouraged to attend.

Why: Many cities often lack spaces where creative people can share their work, and so Pecha Kucha Nights are about exposing the hidden creativity in a city. Pecha Kucha Nights are organized by passionate and enthusiastic people of any creative field

What: Pecha Kucha Night conceived by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham in Tokyo, is an international phenomenon taking place regularly in over 700 cities around the world, and attended by more than 250,000 people annually. Pecha Kucha Night has been described as the world’s biggest physical social network. The key to the success is the simple format where presenters only get 20 images shown for 20 seconds each — this gives anyone a chance to present their recent project or passion.
