NEXT EVENT VOL 33
Join the Nashville Civic Design Center and Frist Art Museum for Nashville’s 33rd PechaKucha Night! For PechaKucha Volume 33, speakers will talk about public art, murals, and more.
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
Light hors-d'oeuvres and beverages will be provided. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
RSVP is required as this event typically sells out!

What happens when you call a city home, but the city calls you homeless? Understanding how the stigma of homelessness affects our neighbors and our community is the first step in addressing the housing crisis in Nashville and building places that we can all call "home".
