PechaKucha Night San Diego

Poo! PechaKucha Night postponed...

SorryPechaKucha Night folks... For the first time since launching PechaKucha Night San Diego on January 20, 2009 - we have to postpone one. Apologies for any inconvenience. We promise it'll be worth the wait. Hang tight for the new date.

Since former PechaKucha Night SD presenter, promoter and emcee Dave Brown of Holiday Matinee has traveled all the way across the country to present at #18, and since he can't extend his stay, and he's still talking to us - we're going to do lunch. Just lunch. Of course, anything we do with Dave Brown around typically turns into awesome. So that means we're having an AWESOME lunch. No agenda. Just working our love, and loving our lunch. Join us at Basic Urban Kitchen if you like awesome, too. More info here. RSVP on Facebook here.

Special "Mini" PechaKucha Night at San Diego Museum of Art

08/18/2011 - 8:00pm - 8:30pm

In response to the San Diego Musum of Art's exhibition Gustav Stickley and the American Arts & Crafts Movement, the Museum is spending 14 weeks of their Summer Salon Series examining the multiple answers to the question "What Does A City Need?" with the help of contemporary artists, musicians, poets, and speakers.

SDAF is honored to take part in the Series by hosting a shortened version of PechaKucha Night San Diego on August 18. Please read more below, and be sure to join SDAF and SDMA for 4 PechaKucha presentations on the 18th, and numerous other exciting events as part of their 2011 Summer Salon Series.

SDAF Members: $10
Students: $10 (Student SDAF Members $8)
Seniors: $9
Active Military and Family Members: free

SDMA Summer Salon Series"The chief worth of civilization is just that it makes the means of living more complex; that it calls for great and combined intellectual efforts, instead of simple, uncoordinated ones, in order that the crowd may be fed and clothed and housed and moved from place to place.  Because more complex and intense intellectual efforts mean a fuller and richer life.  They mean more life.  Life is an end in itself, and the only question as to whether it is worth living is whether you have enought of it."  -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Okay, so what does a city need?  The answers are not easy to come by and they are not always agreed upon, but they are part of an important conversation that applies to us all. Join SDMA every Thursday evening for new art and new conversations on how we build better cities, better communities, and better citizens—all in the format of a salon.
