Pecha Who? Kucha What?

31 Mar

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 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,

 The Providence Journal / John Freidah
Umberto “Bert” Crenca, founder and artistic director of AS220, works on a piece for an installation at the Firehouse 13 Gallery.

Barnaby Evans explained his young curiosity about fire that grew into Waterfire, a Minsky sister undressed the story of  Burlesque and……

 Len Cabral (shout out…HOTtie) whispered sweet nothings about storytelling .  Hello…what a night!

and then….. the ICING ON THE CAKE, the Piece de resistance, the whoa daddy…ERB marching band rocked the house …gathering their troupe of 25 dressed in over the top fun red, white and silver garb and played a pounding assortment of instruments that got you up on your feet…..feeling theLOVE of the room…all gathered for the night to celebrate….CREATIVITY!

and then….. Barnaby left us with a quote from Plato….. 




Sweet!..right?   Join me in April???
