NEXT EVENT VOL 21

It seems like everywhere you look, people are talking about storytelling. But what about STORYMAKING?

PechaKucha Night Burlington, vol. 21, is the culminating event in RETN's STORYCRAFT Conversations series and will feature storytellers working in a variety of mediums.

PechaKucha Night is a worldwide phenomenon that began in 2003 in Tokyo. It offers the opportunity for a broad range of participants to present their projects, ideas, and passions at a fun, informal, and fast-paced gathering. Drawing its name from the Japanese word for the sound of "chit chat," PKN uses a quick and concise 20 x 20 presentation format that allows presenters to show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. Presenters describe their project as the images forward automatically.

Are you interested in being a presenter at PechaKucha Night? Anyone is welcome to participate. Please contact Drew Frazier at drewf@retn.org or Chris Dissinger at cdissing@uvm.edu for more information.
