You can share the inspirations of some of our region’s most creative souls at the upcoming Pecha Kucha Night on Friday September 16 at Caloundra Regional Gallery. From Sunshine Coast Arts Prize finalists Stefan Dunlop and A J Taylor to film-maker Andrew Veavold whose documentary The Search For Weng Weng traces his hunt for the enigmatic two-foot-nine Filipino James Bond, to Mandi McIntyre’s work as a cultural producer with The Planting and the Woodford Folk Festival. These are just some of the interesting and extraordinary people you can hear from at this creative networking event.
The theme is ‘Vision’ and artists and creatives will be sharing their visions about creative projects, opportunities and culture across the Sunshine Coast. Each talk must fit within the Pecha Kucha Night 6 minute 40 second format. The evening will include 12 presentations using the highly visual global Pecha Kucha Night format where 20 slides are shown for just 20 seconds each.

The Creative Alliance in partnership with Caloundra Regional Gallery is excited to be hosting the first Pecha Kucha Night for the southern end of the region. The Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance has been running PKN on the coast since 2009, at the time being the first regional centre in Australia to host the event.
For those who haven’t heard of Pecha Kucha Night before, it helps to learn that Pecha Kucha is a Japanese word for the sound of conversation. The PKN format was devised by Tokyo based architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham in 2003 to allow for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Pecha Kucha has tapped into a global demand for creative networking and a forum in which creative work can be easily shown. It has spread virally to over 920 cities across the world. http://www.pechakucha.org/faq
