Liverpool Artists’ Network Meeting – ‘Petcha Koucha Special, Thursday 21st September at the Bluecoat, 6.30pm – 8.30pm

This time round the Liverpool Artists’ Network meeting will be a little bit different….

Come and join the Liverpool Artists’ Network meeting at the Bluecoat, Thursday 21st September, 6.30pm till 8.30pm.

Speakers at the LAN meetings usually talk about a project that they are working on or a project they want to start.  This is great! BUT, we also want to encourage speakers to come and present about themselves and their work, to say, this is who I am/what I do/what I think.

We’re hoping that many of you will want to speak, but as we don’t have all night…  we’re going to keep the presentations short and sweet and in the style of a ‘ Petcha Koucha’. Pecha Kucha is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.  So you get less than 7 minutes to do your presentation.

It will be fun!  We promise.

Other than the format of 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide, you can talk about whatever you want: your interests in general, work you have made in the past, exhibitions or projects you’ve been part of, specific themes that interest you, other artists who inspire you – whatever you think you need to say to connect with the kind of people who you want to link up with.  Remember, it’s mostly a visual experience, so choose some good images.

We have a limited number of spaces for the Petcha Koucha, so if you would like to introduce Liverpool to your work, please email liverpoolartnet@yahoo. ASAP to let us know.  We’ll take names on a first come first served basis.

Following on from the Petcha Kouchas, there will be a short 10 minute break, for you to meet, mingle and grab a brew. We will be rounding up the evening by leaving a bit of time for the usual presentations, so if you want to mention an upcoming event/project idea (without using slides) just let us know.

And if you’ve got any questions at all just get in touch.  We look forward to seeing you there!
