Mayor Hosts Pecha Kucha, A Night of Big Ideas
Friday February 1, 2013
Free event is Tuesday, Feb. 5 at Metro Hall
Ideas related to Louisville’s future will be shared and celebrated next week at Louisville Metro Hall – and the public is invited to attend the free event.
Mayor Greg Fischer is hosting Pecha Kucha, an evening in which presenters get 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to pitch their ideas. The event began in Japan and has spread worldwide, including to Louisville, where 10 Pecha Kucha nights have been held since 2010.
The event is Tuesday, Feb. 5 with doors opening at 7 p.m. Nine presentations, all revolving around the ongoing Vision Louisville process, begin at 8 p.m.
A cash bar reception will be held in the 2nd floor rotunda of Metro Hall with the presentations occurring in the Mayor’s Gallery on the 4th floor.
“This is a great night for innovative ideas and breakthrough thinking,” Fischer said. “My goal is for Louisville to be a city of innovation and entrepreneurial energy – and Pecha Kucha, along with the IdeaFestival and other events— is helping make that happen.”
