"Let's put this into perspective"

Join us on Thursday 21st August from 7pm as we return to Manchester Art Gallery for PechaKucha Vol 12: PERSPECTIVE

With various approaches to the theme, we're sure there'll be a presentation to stir your imagination, and the PechaKucha format of 20 images x 20 seconds ensures it's never boring, and often amusing. So why not combine the Museum's late night opening with a drink and a little chit chat*? 

PechaKucha Nights have become popular in over 700 cities around the world, and often reach capacity, so please don't delay in securing your FREE seat and register now!  

If you are interested in presenting on this evening please get in touch with us with an outline of your idea. 


*PechaKucha, the Japanese term for the sound of conversation “chit chat”




Arthur Dooley

@ VOL 5 ON JUN 13, 2013

Bob Gaunt tells us about the artist Arthur Dooley, a janitor turned sculptor. His story seems influenced by writer Jacques Rancier, whose book reflects the redistribution of the social order, which Dooley immitated in his change from low value employee to independent artist. Gaunt explores Dooley's stations of the cross series, which evoke a mix of traditionally christian and labor-conscious communist thinking. 


The Cheetah and The Stag

@ VOL 5 ON JUN 13, 2013

David Carden serenades us with the amusing story of The Cheetah and The Stag. Based on a painting by George Stubbs, the story tells of a bet made by the Duke of Cumberland, in which he was later aided by the gift of a cheetah from his nephew, King George III. Delivered in the form of a high energy song.


Proteins R Us

@ VOL 5 ON JUN 13, 2013

Abid Javed tells us a bit about the different proteins in the body, and about their various functions, such as creating energy. Through his own drawings he teaches about various proteins, illustrating their differing shapes and how they do their jobs.  



Global Night in Manchester

Here's today's last poster addition to the blog, for Manchester's PechaKucha Night Vol. 6, that wasn't held on our PechaKucha Global Night, but rather a few nights later, and still followed the theme of "hidden heroes." You'll of course find more posters on our PechaKucha Night Poster Tumblr, and all Global Night posters can be found here.
