Living Arts has a long history of believing that creativity has no discipline or boundaries. We can all grow from learning about other folks who are doing amazing work within our own community. It is with great pride that we announce the third PechaKucha Tulsa Night. Living Arts has been chosen to be the Tulsa representative for the worldwide PechaKucha phenomenon, a format for creative people to show what they are all about.
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young creative people to meet, network and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation ("chit chat"), it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations conciseand keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
