River Tree Arts to host Pecha Kucha night

Pecha Kucha Night – the internationally recognized series of short, creative presentations – returns to River Tree Arts on Thursday, Feb. 6 in Lower Village Kennebunk.

The evening’s presenters include a land reclaimer, a teacher/diplomat, a getoutdoors blogger, two fabulous painters, and several more fascinating, creative people.

The snow date is Feb. 13.

The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program starts at 7:20 p.m.

Launched in 2003 by two Tokyo architects, Pecha Kucha (Japanese for “chit chat”) is a short presentation format (20 slides, 20 seconds each) that focuses on creativity and the creative process. It was conceived to provide creative professionals and amateurs with a place to meet, mingle and share their work.

Each presentation is limited to just six minutes and forty seconds, so the audience is exposed to many ideas and a broad range of topics in rapid-pace succession. The list of possible topics is endless.

The program consists of 10 short presentations, with a refreshment break after the first five. Beer and wine will be available for purchase; light snacks provided free of charge.

Pecha Kucha Night has become an international sensation, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. It’s a must-see “happening” for anyone interested in new ideas and creative thinking, and an inexpensive, fun night out with a group of fascinating people.
