Pecha Kucha Nights Guimarães Vol.01 had an audience of over 200 people
The first edition of Pecha Kucha Nights Guimarães Vol.01 took place on the last 15th of October, at CAAA (Center for Art and Architecture Affairs), 9.21pm, under the coordination of the architects José Martins and João Rosmaninho.
The CAAA saw its "nave" transformed into an exhibition hall for about 210 people. The environment was lived with informality and creativity which are characteristic of this event type. The themes variety stimulated the expectation of each intervention.
Ana Aragão, illustrator, started the event presenting her work. The commons themes like music, photography, communication design, architecture, fine arts was presented as well as the non-communs themes like urban planning and computer graphics.
Note that it was possible to see the cultural presentation and collective initiatives of great merit in Guimarães, as is the case with Guimarães noc noc with Jorge Matos and the Laboratory of Arts by Luis Ribeiro.
In the end, Rodrigo Areias shared some memories that were decisive in his formation as a filmmaker and presented a sequence of images of Teatro Jordão, produced under a "repérage" proccess.
The CAAA is alive and showed its versatility with distinction.
