Pecha Kucha Night New Orleans Volume IV

Thursday, June 10, 2010 | 7 pm
2803 St. Philip St. (corner of N. White and St. Philip)

The fourth installment of a creative show-and-tell event.

The Building Block at the Icehouse presents: Conversations about the Gulf

Pecha Kucha is a conversation starter, a networking opportunity, and an informal night for folk to come together, share and draw inspiration. And just as crucially, it’s a brilliant night out- Specialty Cocktails, Tasty Nibbles, Visual Treats, and a chance to connect with ideas and creatives in our disparate community.

The key to Pecha Kucha is its patented democratic system. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, for 20 seconds each - giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of time.

NO/other and The Building Block at the Icehouse have invited 10 practitioners from various fields in the local creative and academic community:

J. O. Evans III: FutureProof Director, Sustainability Consultant/artist
Monique Verdin: Photographer: Photo documentation of oil spill impacts on fishermen
Dana Eness: The Urban Conservancy: The economic impact on the oyster industry
