Last night I had the honor with my dear friend Uli to be surrounded by a group of people exploring creativity! If you have not had a chance to visit Pecha Kucha Providence..you might consider putting it on your bucket list.
Words to describe the evening…vibrant, electric, exhilarating, exciting, exceptional and as a bonus..a standup, shake your booty kind of a night. The concept is that a variety of creative minds that include architects, writers, gardeners, musicians, visionaries, painters, sculptors, roller derby gals, poets (you get the idea) gather once a month to either participate or view six creative minds presenting 20 slides in 20 seconds on their passion. The goal is to bring the creative community together to share, connect and inspire. Last night Bert Crenca of AS220 ranted about color,
