The Artist's Voice PechaKucha Night

PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. PechaKucha Nights are informal gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts - just about anything, really. We’ve invited a range of South Australian artists to present in the PechaKucha 20x20 format for a night of art inspired frivolity.
The bar will be open.
