Pecha Kucha Night
The cityhomeCOLLECTIVE team has been invited to speak at PechaKucha, Vol. 6!
PechaKucha Night is an inspiring gathering of minds that was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Our fearless leader (Cody) will have 6 minutes — in a concise ’20 images x 20 seconds’ format — to school on the importance of space and the impact our surroundings can have on our happiness, inspiration and well-being. Several other talents (see below) will take the 6-minute stage, as well, and we’re excited to hear the words of wisdom. Come…be inspired this Saturday, October 29, at the Avocet Building.
Check out the event page here to get the details. Presenters start @ 7:00pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to hit your Halloween parties. Costumes are optional, but feel free to test yours out in a room full of creative people. Drinks will be served. Seating is limited, so reserve your free tickets now. http://pechakuchaslc.eventbrite.com/

With an emphasis on creative and artistic engineering they have sought to test the boundaries of possibility for this emerging technology.
