The Kentucky Museum and has been designated as the official host for Bowling Green Pecha Kucha Nights! We are in the process of being added to the http://www.pecha-kucha.org/ site.
Pecha Kucha Nights are amazing events for all creative people – – educators, designers, architects, students, artists, actors, historians, writers, chefs, scientists, entrepreneurs and beyond. It’s a place for people to show their
work, their passion be it fashion, art, design, graphics, finished projects, or even travels photos – – anything that feeds the minds and creative souls of those who present and those who attend.
One practitioner described it as “PowerPoint performance art,” with its 20 slides, 20 seconds a slide format. From beginning to end, presentations are 6 minutes and forty seconds. The average PK night has
10 to 16 presenters with a “beer break” in between. People approach the 20 X 20 format differently, depending on their selected topic. Some presentations are very funny and irreverent, some are very serious and poignant.
Please contact me if:
- You would like to present at our first PKN (late September).
- You would like to have one or more of your students present. Do a search of Pecha Kucha in the classroom for examples. The KM is also open to working with a particular class or professor to facilitate outstanding student presentations for our first PKN.
- If you are already using PK styled presentations in the classroom. I would like to chat with you.
Please go online to see a variety of “live” PKNs around the world.
This is just our first “shout out” for PKN at the museum. The KM will do a promotional blitz later for the campus and local communities.
The WKU faculty and staff are some of the most creative, talented people I know! I wanted to put the idea out there before the semester ends.
