SPUR is looking for speakers for a fun night of quick-fire presentations on
"What SJ Means to Me." If you haven't been to a Pecha Kucha before, it is a
presentation format that began in Tokyo but has since spread around the
world and that features an individual presenting 20 slides at 20 seconds
per slide. Because of this timing and the small number of slides,
presentations are quick and concise, offering speakers a way to quickly
make a point. Additionally, the automatically transitioning slides and
short presentation make the style conducive to all types of presenters, but
those that really do well are dynamic speakers.
Presentations don't need to be directly answering that prompt; rather as
long as the presentation touches the topic, even at a tangent, the audience
If you, or anyone you know would be interested in speaking it would be
awesome. Pecha Kucha presentations can run the gamut of emotions over the
course of a night, from heartwarmingly hilarious or heartbreakingly sad, so
there is huge diversity in terms of content.
Please contact Noah Christman, Public Programming Manager of SPUR at
if you are interested.
The event is on Monday, July 23rd at 6:00pm.
