Edmonton NextGen to Host Second Pecha Kucha Night

After running a very successful Pecha Kucha Night on May 1st, Edmonton NextGen is at it again.  The next installment of the Edmonton Pecha Kucha series is slated to take place on September 11, 2008.  The event location has moved from the Winspear Centre to the TransAlta Arts Barns at 10330-84 Ave and kicks off at 6:30.  Tickets are $5 at the door and you can RSP a spot at the event by emailing them at: nextgen@edmonton.ca

For those of you not familiar with what Pecha Kucha is basically how it works is that there is a series of presenters each with a topic of their choosing (most projects in the Edmonton installment revolve around desing and art projects that they are invovled in).  However unlike a typical boring presentation that drags on, the presenters are only allowed 20 slides and their slides are set to 20 second auto advance, thus keeping things fast paced and interesting.
