So I’m going to be hosting PK 13 and to get to know the presenters a little better, I sent each of them some questions.

So far, I’ve gotten responses from -

  • Kristina Cancelmi (@kcancelmi), a graphic designer / illustrator, with website: www.cargocollective.com/savvycurio
  • Andrew Fallon & Becka Jo Lee (@andrewfallon), Awesomers, with website: www.tigerlilymedia.com
  • Jeff Knapp, Professor of Humanities, FSCJ

Here are my questions and some of their responses; sounds like the makings of an interesting evening.

1.  Have you attended or done a Pecha Kutcha before?

Andrew & Becka Jo – Attended and participated. It was fun.

Kristina – I have attended one ; I initially thought it was very intimidating (to have to speak in front of a lot of people), but also a great way to “introduce” one’s self to the creative community. Staying linked with others and networking is a great way to keep meeting more people (which I love).

2.  Why should someone come check out PK?

Jeff – Drinks, food, and creative people who’ll teach you new things. What could be better?

Andrew & Becka Jo – Something different, something new, and you get to interact with real people.

3.  What resources might you suggest for someone looking to participate in the event to help them prepare?

Jeff – First, attend some events, and I would highly suggest going to the Pecha Kucha organization’s website. I did a lot of web research prior to even attending my first one.

Kristina – Well, I am still honestly figuring it out as well! But I looked online for past Pecha Kucha events, both local and international, and took notes on others presentations.

4.  What do you plan to speak about for your Pecha Kutcha performance?

Kristina – I would like to speak about my roots, and how I have been influenced throughout my years as a creative. Influences, passions and experiences to name a few highlights.

Jeff – My presentation’s working title is “Misadventures in Travel.” For about eight years I was involved with and then directed the Humanities Study Abroad program at Tallahassee Community College, and have done a fair bit of independent travel as well.

Come on out to Pecha Kutcha 13!  Have fun and make some new friends.
