Pecha Kucha Night features passion projects

Pecha Kucha Night – a series that features short, creative presentations – returns to River Tree Arts on Thursday, Nov. 20 in Lower Village Kennebunk.

The evening’s presenters include a landscape architect with a sense of place, a loon whisperer, two Maine painters, a master ice carver, and several more creative people, including Mona Jerome of Ever After Mustang Rescue in Biddeford.

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 six minutes and 40 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.
