The Parrish Art Museum is seeking participants for its first Teen PechaKucha Night Hamptons, an event following the format of the popular rapid-fire lecture series curated and hosted by the Parrish four times per year.
To be considered as to participate in the program, East End teenagers are invited to submit their presentation ideas for Teen PechaKucha Night Hamptons to [email protected] by Friday, January 15. Area teens are asked to send three sample images (jpeg format) and a one-paragraph description of the presentation topic, as well their name, school and grade level.
Selected participants will be notified by February 1, allowing more than three weeks to prepare before the actual event, which is scheduled at the museum for Friday, February 26 at 6 p.m., in conjunction with Family Month.
Each presenter will show 20 slides that advance every 20 seconds, yielding 6 minutes and 40 seconds per person. Presenters will use their own prepared script or notes to discuss the topic as the slides run automatically, projected behind them on a large screen.
The regular adult PechaKucha Night Hamptons at the Parrish Art Museum has featured speakers from varied fields speaking on the theme of living creatively on the East End. Adult PechaKucha presenters at the Museum have included artists, musicians, beekeepers, inventors, baymen, authors, DJs and chefs. The PechaKucha format was invented in Tokyo by Klein Dytham Architecture, Tokyo in 2003 and has grown to a global movement. Offered all over the world, the program is designed to introduce communities to a wide range of creative topics and people.
