…and we want you to present

We know there are amazing, brilliant, and wildly creative things going on around town, and in your mind – and this is your chance to share it with the rest of the region! The only limitations are 20 images, 20 seconds per image, for a total of 6 minutes 40 seconds. No other rules, except – make it extraordinary!

Why should you present?

It is an opportunity:

  • to air your work/ideas, share your visions, express your concerns/critiques
  • to challenge yourself to be concise and creative in getting your message across
  • to present to a broad city-wide audience, in a casual social environment
  • place yourself among the best creative talent in town
