Dayton’s Engineers Club is a living memorial to the men and women that built our city. Walking through the Club you can easily imagine Charles Kettering or the Wright Brothers sitting and discussing the social and political issues of the day. It is here you can find rich pieces of Dayton’s at every turn.
It is the mission of the Engineers Club to “foster the advancement of business, education, engineering and science, and to promote the professional development of its members.” If you have never had the pleasure of visiting the club Thursday night is your chance to soak up all that is Dayton while enjoying the 24th Volume of Pecha Kucha.
Pecha what? Pecha Kucha are 6-minutes 40-seconds presentations accompanied by 20 slides. The speaker must use 20 slides that automatically advance every 20-seconds. Pecha Kucha rules are strict and going over your time is prohibited. Generally each slide only will contain a single image. The format was developed in Tokyo (hence the Japanese name) by two foreign architects: Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein.
Dayton gathers 4 times a year for Pecha Kucha. It is free and open to the public. Volume 24 is scheduled for Thursday August the 20th and will begin at 7:30 pm. According to the Dayton PK website you can expect a diverse roster of presenters.
“Emcee Duante Beddingfield will keep us on our toes as the mic passes between: Emmy-winning artist Rodney Veal, Rue Dumaine bartender Brian Petro, artist Austin Radcliffe of “Things Organized Neatly,” attorney Lela Klein, the “great” PR man Charlie Campell, Chef Anthony Head, librarian Lisa Holmes, Tibetan traveler Emily Fleitz, veterinarian Bethany Horn and adventurer Kriss Gang.”
The event is free and a cash bar will be available. Don’t miss out on this unique style of presenting in one of Dayton’s most unique spots.
