Show and Tell [PechaKucha] session
This is a solicitation for a participation in a Show and Tell presentation of your own work to be held in Reno and Las Vegas as a component of OISTAT Scenography and History and Theory Commission Meeting in Las Vegas 22- 25 March 2012.

We are seeking art from both professionals and emerging artists. Both groups will be represented. The art should represent productions realized or conceptual.

PechaKucha is a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. Thus, each presenter has just 6 minutes and 40 seconds to explain their ideas before the next takes the stage. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.

You will include your 20 images in a timed PowerPoint presentation. Please include in the PowerPoint the following information: your identification, your role in the event or production, production year and location.  Please label the file with your last name and submit either on a CD or through a website for transferring large files, for example: Wetransfer (https://www.wetransfer.com/), Drop Box, You Send It, Send Space or any other site of your choice.

It is best to Show and Tell about your work in person; if you cannot travel to Las Vegas for the session, you do not need to be present. But your PowerPoint will still be shown.  The submission deadline for the Show and Tell is 20 January 2012.
