VOL 11

April 30, 2013
@ Gheens Foundation Lodge @ Parklands at Floyds Fork

Volume 11 represents many of the causes and creations that have traditionally inspired the organizers of Pecha Kucha Night Louisville; however, since this volume falls on the Tuesday of Derby Week, we were obligated as self-respecting Kentuckians to spice things up! For one, we are proud to announce the first event produced under the new guest curator position, currently held by Abbey Smith. Abbey brings to this PK her focus on empowering women along with interests in local history, art, spirituality, community activism, and the environment. And two, we have selected the most amazing new building in the Metro area as our venue: the exotically local Gheens Foundation Lodge at the Parklands of Floyds Fork. So before you put on your fancy hats to play the ponies on Saturday, come put on your thinking caps to share the ideas of today.

Love an Old House

David Dominé believes that old houses are like old people - if you listen to them, they'll have a story to tell. David moved to Louisville in 1993, where he was immediately taken by the display of vibrant architecture. He began writing books about old houses in the neighborhood, bringing back their colorful and interesting pasts.
