PechaKucha 20x20 originated in Japan and is a storytelling format where presenters show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. In other words, they've got 400 seconds to tell a story. PechaKucha events are hosted all over the world, inviting individuals no matter from what background or age to share their ideas, adventures or pathways.
PechaKucha York takes place quarterly and is ran by York Creatives and The Arts Barge Project. The events are £5 per person and tickets are limited to 60 people.
I will be presenting on the topic of 'Safe Landing', and how art is used as a form of therapy for myself.

ART MAZE BARGEHOUSE LDN
FEB 23RD-27TH 2022
"This historic four-storey raw warehouse space will once again be transformed into a haunting and immersive maze of art creating a story that unravels as visitors explore the exhibition. With 13 different spaces to discover, each room is incredibly atmospheric with original features and quirks, providing a fascinating backdrop for the exhibition.
After the turmoil of the pandemic, Exhibit Here wanted to do something extra special for this Private View. Chop & Chip will be setting up a 10ft mobile cash bar on the ground floor of Bargehouse, offering a full menu including cocktails, mocktails, wine, beer, cider, spirits, and soft drinks. They will be onsite from 4pm, ahead of the Private View starting at 6.30pm, so if you want to beat the que, meet the artists, and enjoy a drink with friends before the excitement of the Private View arrive early!"

come as you art

"Come as you are; bring art. Come As You Art are a small group of emerging artists who want to share their joy in the practice and consumption of art.
We want to emphasise the democracy in creativity - we welcome work from professional, semi-professional and student artists; aiming to give all artists, but especially new and emerging artists a platform to show, sell - and enjoy showing and selling - their work."
The images attached are the work I exhibited, and will be updated with my time at the exhibition.
18 NOV - 18 DEC 2021
The premise of the exhibition is to explore the influence of sound and music on the visual arts.
I present my Amy Winehouse portrait, with a QR code attached to play "Tears Dry On Their Own".
“Echo’s Studio is a multi-award wining sound studio based in the prestigious Vila Mariana neighborhood in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Apart from Echo’s, the space currently houses 3 audiovisual companies (Voz À Obra, FLAP and Affinitás) and also hosts workshops. It is a creative hub that offers services for the biggest brands in the market and records a variety of Brazilian celebrities and artists. By branching out to art exhibitions, the studio aims to widen their creative practice and also become a vibrant cultural centre.
During the exhibition, the studio will be hosting and recording the Paraty International Literary Festival (FLIP). The festival that began in Paraty, in the State of Rio de Janeiro, in 2003, and which has quickly become one of the most important cultural gatherings in South America, will be held online due to Covid. Therefore, a lot of amazing people will be coming to the studio to create live content for the festival.”
