From cutting edge galleries to new initiatives in bringing art to the community, Nashville is growing its reputation as a lab for creativity. Come hear a curated lineup of visionary thinkers and doers whose energy is likely to inspire and hasten the artistic transformation of the city. The original PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as a way for young designers to meet, network and show their work to the public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with PechaKucha Nights now happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from a Japanese term for the sound of "chitchat," its format is simple—20 images x 20 seconds—making presentations concise and moving things along at a rapid pace.
