Share your story at PeckaKucha event
THE ART of PechaKucha will be showcased in Atherton next month, with locals who love storytelling invited to come along to the visual fast-paced presentation at the Barron Valley Hotel.
PechaKucha is an art of presenting a story with a 20 image x 20 second ratio, designed by Japanese architects who were tired of listening to long presentations.
The concept of having a slideshow presentation of 20 images and having 20 seconds to explain the imagery was created and adapted by many presenters across the world.
Organiser Deanna Maich of community arts group, Atherton Buzz, decided she wanted to bring the unique presentation to Atherton to give the town a little more excitement.
She says this event will inspire those who attend and help build resilience in the community throughout the art.
“We wanted to focus on stories of resilience, art and beauty where people can show their experience through pictures as well as words,” she said.
“We are mimicking what they were doing at Tanks in Cairns so we could have something like this here in Atherton.
“We hope this is something the community can pick up and brand for Atherton and I can not wait to see what comes of it.”
Volume 1 of Atherton Buzz PechaKucha will be held on 2 September at the Barron Valley Hotel dining room from 7pm onwards.
