About This Event

Pecha Kucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and presenters talk along to the images. Pecha Kucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts.

In this special Pecha Kucha, presenters are invited to answer the following: From your unique vantage point Who was Atlanta, Who is Atlanta and Who will Atlanta become? Atlanta's identity in inextricably linked and at times juxtaposed to the metro and the state. How does the city, the metro and the state influence, shape, hold back and propel each other forward?
