Arts Across Learning Festival: Pecha Kucha Night

Creative Learning Team, Aberdeen City Council

Deadline: 22 February 2015 at 16:00

Calling all artists, teachers, cultural organisations and students of arts and education! The Arts Across Learning Festival in Aberdeen is holding it’s first ever Pecha Kucha evening at this year’s festival hub space, The LightBox, and are inviting YOU to share with your contemporaries and colleagues. The evening’s theme will focus on creativity in education.

Pecha Kucha is a simple presentation format where 20 images are shown, for 20 seconds each, for roughly 6 minutes in total. (See for more info)

These sessions are a chance to network, share practice and get a trailer length trip through other practitioners’ careers and creative processes in classrooms and beyond. Each presenter will be able to share past projects, best working or new ideas. To ensure a broad mix of interests and disciplines these bite sized bits of brain food will be presented by a mix of practitioners including artists and teachers.

The key to a great Pecha Kucha is to present something you have genuine interest in. Most people use Pecha Kucha nights to present their latest creative projects or work. Some people share best practice, or simply just share an element of their practice they think is particularly fun or successful.

The limelight is calling, it is time to show off what you have been up to, get your work out there and inspire others!

If you are interested in presenting please contact Kelly McMeekin, Creative Project Coordinator, with a brief outline of what you would like to share in your Pecha Kucha. (A few sentences by email are fine).

Spaces to present at this unique event are limited so please contact Kelly by email before Friday 20 February 2015.

Final presentations will need to be submitted 7 days in advance of the presentation to ensure compatibility with the technology being used. (By Thursday 7th March)

Pecha Kuchas will be held Thursday 12 March from 4-6pm at the LightBox venue in Aberdeen:

The LightBox, Top Floor, 9 East Terrace, Union Square, Aberdeen, AB11 5RB (next door to HobbyCraft, entry via outdoor car park)

Location: Aberdeen City

For further information, please contact (Kelly McMeekin, Creative Project Coordinator), or call 01224 611161, or visit

The deadline is Sunday 22 February 2015 at 16:00.
