Final Friday: PLACE—this Friday!

Join us from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, April 27 when emcees Braydee Euliss and Paul Shortt introduce PechaKucha talks to Muncie to highlight what is unique, unexpected, and inspiring in our city.

Enjoy music by DJ Jannell, refreshments, cash bar, art, a look at the special exhibition Richard Diebenkorn: Beginnings, 1942-1955, and more. Click link above for full schedule of speakers and artist demonstrations.

*PechaKucha, Japanese for "chit chat," is a concise presentation format where 20 images are timed to automatically advance every 20 seconds as a presenter talks along. Each presentation lasts only 6 minutes, 40 seconds. This is an informal and fun gathering where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, snaps—just about anything, really—in the PechaKucha format.
