Pecha Kucha is back…

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010


After a very successful series that pioneered Pecha Kucha Nights in the Carolinas, Point8 Forum is back with a new series, and this time we are doing it in collaboration with CLT Blog and Dugg Dugg. Mark your calendars, PK5 kicks off Thursday, April 8!

What: Pecha Kucha Night Charlotte – Vol. 5
When: Thursday, April 8, at 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00 pm)
Where: Dharma Lounge, South End (1440 S Tryon, NC 28203)
Admission: $5 at the door

…and we want you to present

We know there are amazing, brilliant, and wildly creative things 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 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

Guidelines, Rules and Selection Process

We will be limiting the total number for Vol. 5 to 12 presentations.

A panel made up of artists, designers, and architects from Point8, Dugg Dugg and CLT Blog will be selecting the final list of 12 presenters. The selection will be based on the quality of the entries, and the originality of the theme/ideas submitted. The panelists will work with would-be presenters on refining ideas & honing quality of presentations.
