Recap of PechaKucha Night

I had a great Thursday evening at PechaKucha Night.  I knew that, being Valentine’s Day, the Evergreen Cultural Centre would either be deserted or packed for the event.  As it turned out, it was packed.

Attendees At 6:30 pm, an hour before the show started, I arrived with the other presenters for a sound check and a rundown of how the evening would go, as well as a group photo (which I’ll post when I get a copy).  I spent the rest of the time before the show talking to the other presenters and I learned that Judson Beaumont was most looking forward to my presentation, as I was to his.  (Judson’s a really nice guy and we hit it off immediately.  He had also familiarized himself with my work ahead of time.)

There was a wide variety of topics and presentation strategies from the twelve presenters and it was fun to participate.  For my presentation, I showed slides of my work with some of my favourite quotes and talked briefly about the significance of the quote and the piece shown.  I had spent a lot of time preparing the slides and let them lead my talk.  Many of the audience members found my talk inspiring; after my slideshow, the emcee jokingly suggested that we all go home and make something.

At the end of this post and each of my next 19 blog posts, I will include one slide from my presentation and after that, the video that was recorded at the show complete with audio.

This is the first slide from my PechaKucha presentation.
