Creativity in Conversation, Powered by PechaKucha

Psychologists define it as the capacity to produce ideas both original and adaptive, the Merriam-Webster dictionary as the ability to make new things or think new ideas…but perhaps Albert Einstein had the most poetic description, “Creativity is seeing what everyone else has seen, and thinking what no else has thought.”

This powered by PechaKucha evening features personal stories on creativity – from the seeds that spawn it to the challenges that foster it and its impact thereafter - featuring presenters whose backgrounds span design, technology, art, and culture - defying singular categorization.

"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format."
