Invitation to participate in May Clay Club

May Clay Club will be be hosted by Karen Speer in Marion on Wednesday, May 10th. We will have a program of PechaKucha-inspired presentations. PechaKucha is “a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds.” You can read more about the format on the website. (Karen pointed out to me that NCECA had a program of PechaKucha-style talks this year in Portland; they called it Blinc 20:20 and you can see the line-up of presentations here:

We are going to put fewer limits on our presentations. The only requirements are that the presentations last 5-7 minutes and be ceramics-related. “Ceramics-related” is intentionally vague - you are encouraged to interpret that broadly: your favorite ceramic artist (dead or alive); a technique you’ve researched or mastered; something related to industrial or commercial ceramics; a museum you’ve visited; a historical topic you’ve researched - really *anything* related to ceramics.

Karen has a digital projector available for us to use, but you don’t have to use it. If you do present images, you are not bound by the PechaKucha 20-second rule - you can present them however you want as long as the presentation lasts 5-7 minutes.

May Club will be at our usual 6-8 pm time on Wednesday, May 10th. I'll share directions and more details closer to the date.
