Grand Stafford Theater has partnered once again with the Institute for Applied Creativity and AdventGX to bring Bryan-College Station together to celebrate creativity by hosting the next quarterly event officially sponsored by PechaKucha, a global movement for informal discussions in casual settings. PechaKucha Night will occur at Grand Stafford Theater on Tuesday, December 1st.
PechaKucha was invented by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham Architecture early in 2003. It is a simple presentation format where presenters show 20 images, each for 20 seconds.
The first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in February 2003, and Klein Dytham Architecture still organizes and supports the global PechaKucha Night network. PechaKucha Nights now happen in over 800 cities worldwide and provide a gathering place for people to share and show their work in a relaxed setting.
December’s presenters include Dr. Reuben Buford May, Helen DeWolf, Becky Phillips, and Renata Myers. Dr. Reuben May is a Sociology professor at Texas A&M University who spends his free time writing, recording, and performing rap music around the Bryan-College Station area. Helen DeWolf is an Assistant Research Specialist in the Conservation Research Laboratory at the Department of Anthropology at Texas A&M University. Becky Phillips is an art professor at Blinn College where she teaches painting, art history, and drawing. In 2013, her work was featured at the SEAD Gallery in Downtown Bryan. Renata Myers is a real estate agent and broker from Austin, Texas.
December’s PechaKucha night is on Tuesday, December 1st at Grand Stafford Theater. Admission is free but a $10 donation is suggested. Read more about PechaKucha nights and donate here: https://grandstaffordtheater.com/event/pechakucha-night/
