There is more happening tonight and tomorrow night as part of the Creative Dialogues program organized by Wollongong City Council.

‘Pecha Kucha, a night of ideas’, Wednesday, September 28 . 7:00pm – 9:00pm. The Hideaway Cafe, 8/81 Church Street, Wollongong.

A night for artists, writers, performers, designers, social entrepreneurs, scientists (in fact, anyone!) to pitch their ideas to an audience in a format of 20 slides / 20 seconds per slide for a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds.

Pronounced ‘peh-cha ku-cha’ and Japanese for the ‘sound of conversation’, it was originally founded by Klein Dytham Architects (KDA) in Tokyo in 2003, as a way for young designers to meet, network and show their work in public. Presentations are short, concise and inspirational.
 
Forum at Wollongong City Gallery,  Thursday, September 29 . 6.30pm

This forum will unpack the role of cultural infrastructure, policy and strategy in building rich, creative and resilient regional centres. What are the cultural and creative opportunities available to Wollongong now and in the future? Panel includes John Montgomery from Urban Cultures.
