What's Happening

WCA/NH Fall Meeting

TELL US YOUR STORY!

It will be here before we know it. October 25 at the Jaffrey Civic Center, 40 Main Street, Jaffrey, NH at 10:00am. This year’s meeting will coincide with the Tell Me a Story exhibition, which runs from October 17 - November 15, 2014. With that theme in mind, we would like to invite you to give us the fast version of your story. We will be introducing our version of a “PechaKucha 20 x 20”. Here is a bit of background from the web site for pechakucha.org:

What is PechaKucha 20x20?
PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.

Who invented the format?
The presentation format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture

Why invent this format?
Because architects talk too much! Give a microphone and some images to an architect -- or most creative people for that matter -- and they'll go on forever! Give PowerPoint to anyone else and they have the same problem.

We will be altering the format slightly to 10 images for 20 seconds each to accommodate as many participants as possible. It’s an auto-forward presentation. There is no “next slide” or “go back one”, just talk along and enjoy the show. Here is your chance to practice your “elevator pitch” in a safe hometown crowd.  Alternatively, you could say absolutely nothing if that’s more your style. Let the work speak for itself. Images don’t have to be only of your art. Share one that uncovers your magnificent talents, your awesome inspirations, your amazing work space, the her-story of your art. What’s behind your Art? Think of it as a movie trailer for your art career.

Here is how to participate:  E-mail your images to Marcia Mertinooke Wood, who has volunteered to make a combined Power Point. If you prefer to send a thumb drive or CD, please contact Marcia to work out the details. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

That’s it! Do this; show us your stuff.
