Hosted by CMA’s Center For Creativity, Pecha Kucha will take place in Derby Court and the Cardinal Health Auditorium. Each speaker will follow the international Pecha Kucha format of showing 20 images and speaking about each image for 20 seconds. Presenters include Oron Benary with Simply Living, architectural photographer Brad Feinknopf, OSU medical student Danny Ash, Dwight Heckelman of Groove U, Jess Mathews from Consider Biking, Steve Shapiro with The Educational Council, Mark Farmer from Team 614, and Scott Vayo of BPM Productions. Presenters are subject to change.
Guests will have access to CMA’s galleries throughout the evening. Musical act Coal Fired Bicycle will perform during intermission. Local food trucks and indoor food vendors will sell refreshments, as organized by The Food Fort at ECDI (Economic Community & Development Institute). A cash bar will be available. Genre Creative will provide a free photo booth, and Scott Vayo will deejay the event.
