On my MA we have have been offered the opportunity to take part in a Pecha Kucha presentation evening that will be taking place in Brighton on Wednesday 9th May at The Old Market in Brighton.
For those of you who aren’t sure what I am talking about when I say Pecha Kucha, I will explain. It was something terrifyingly introduced to me when I started my MA as a way of us all introducing ourselves on our first day!
The format of Pecha Kucha goes like this- It is a 20×20 format, you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images you choose for your presentation automatically move on after 20 seconds and you speak (fluidly and interestingly of course) along with each image.
Here is one I found on their website which is a clever and funny canadian artist-
This presentation was presented by Diana Thorneycroft at Winnipeg #7.
So all of us on the MA that are graduating this year are taking part, 15 in total, all giving a presentation on our work and inspirations and anything that has helped us along the way.
I am going to be speaking about my current work, which is exciting but extremely nerve wracking as I haven’t shown many people it at all, (not even on here!) so it will be pretty scary.
I am going to post some of my new work on here before the 9th of May event. So if once you see it, it poses any questions to you that you think would be interesting to answer in my presentation, they would be fantastic to hear!
The event has been organised by an extremely nice man called Jim Stephenson.
He runs photography focused talks and events in Brighton called miniclick, take a look!
This is link is to the page that is all about our night so it tells you a little about each of us and anything I have forgotten to say will most likely be covered there, you can look back at past events as well as future.
If you happen to be in Brighton on that date, please do come along if you like the sound of it.
You can get a ticket here from TheOldMarket website.
I think it’s going to be really interesting and inspiring to watch everyone talk.
What would you do spend your 6 minutes and 40 seconds talking about?
