NOC POT-cha Kucha Night!
This NOC event will be graciously hosted by Allen Kradlak at the (heated!) AK Studios 604, North Rocky River Drive, Berea, OH 44017 
Date: Thursday March 5th, 7:00 - 9:00 pm.
So, here what it’s all about:
“PechaKucha or Pecha Kucha (Japanese: ペチャク, IPA: [petɕa ku͍̥tɕa], chit-chat) is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights (PKNs).
“A typical PechaKucha Night includes 8 to 14 presentations. The presenters are usually from the design, architecture, photography, art and creative fields, but also from academia. Most presenters are design professionals showing their creative work, but presenters often speak about such topics as their travels, research projects, student projects, hobbies, collections, or other interests.”
Sounds like fun!  It will be great to get out of our studios and share what we are all up to. Will you be one of the 8 people to commit to presenting their PowerPoint presentations at this first event?!  Please email me if you are interested.
