Dayton Pecha Kucha vol 7- Thursday June 30th 2011: FREE!

Pecha Kucha Dayton logoThis Thursday night- if you don’t have anything else to do- come down to Pecha Kucha and hear me speak for exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds while displaying 20 slides in a PowerPoint deck.
You can also hear 8, infinitely more interesting people the same night. And for the first time- this is FREE.
PK night is run by two very talented South Parkians: Matt Sauer and Jill Davis- both of the “creative class.”
Matt is an architect with Rogero Buckman Architects– the people who do the cool LiteHouses on Patterson, the Cooper Lofts, the Firefly Building, the Cannery, inside of Therapy Cafe and Boulevard Haus as well as the sculptures and buildings along Riverscape. Jill is a talented writer, who used to work at Design Forum before recently hanging her own shingle- a link to her site to come.
Here are the details from their press release:

Sponsored by Dragonfly Editorial, this time we’re at the Yellow Cab Building, home of Dayton Creative Circus. Come and hear 9 presenters who’ve distilled their ideas into 400 seconds of fast-paced inspiration. Beverages and snacks provided..

Presenters include: Kevin Harris, artist, presenting “Tread,” drawings and prints combining traditional and digital art media, mind and body, eye and hand, camera and computer, printer and press. Kevin teaches Drawing and Printmaking at Sinclair Community College. J.T. Ryder, freelance writer, presents “Variety Is A Dirty Little Secret” or how he brought together diverse performers, musicians and artists to create the Dirty Little Secret Variety Show. Variety Is A Dirty Little Secret.” Wanting to bring together diverse performers, musicians and artists, J.T. finally had to give up hope on conning someone else into doing it and created the Dirty Little Secret Variety Show. David Esrati, community activist, blogger, ad agency owner and persistent candidate (for either city commission or Congress) will present “The end of coin flip politics” and let you vote on how we could give you the ability to elect the people you really want to run our country in the future.

Actress Megan Cooper will tell of life without a car, restaurateur Kimberly Collett will share the ongoing saga of Olive, Kidtee Hello will treat us to her strikingly beautiful photography, Patrice Hall of RealArt will share her experience of SXSW, and Jeff Opt, Creative Circus, will explain how we all ended up at the Yellow Cab building listening to him and drinking beer.

It should make for a fascinating evening. Hope to see you there.
