Pecha Kucha night at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery 13 June 2010
The Dunedin Public Art Gallery will be hosting a Pecha-Kucha night on Sunday 13 June 2010. The following text is from the Dunedin City Council Website, which has more information on the event. Thanks to Sue Odlin for bringing this to my attention.
“This will be a special event celebrating Puaka/ Matariki. The rising of Puaka (the star, Rigel) and Matariki (the constellation, Pleiades) marks the coming of the traditional Maori New Year”.
“Our Puaka/ Matariki Pecha Kucha night will be the first of its kind, and marks a new partnership between the Dunedin Fringe Arts Trust and the Dunedin City Council Puaka/Matariki Steering Roopu. It promises to be a remarkable event where the prized skill of Maori oratory is tested by the 20 x 20 challenge”.
