Maraya Art Centre
Maraya Art Centre yesterday hosted the fourth edition of the popular and innovative PechaKucha Night Sharjah. The event was co-organised by Salem Al Qassimi, founder of Fikra Design Studio and Maryam Al Dabbagh, an independent writer
and researcher, and took place at the Maraya Community.
Based on a simple 20x20 format, which allows each presenter to show 20 images with 20 seconds allocated per image, PechaKucha Nights are geared to encourage brief and lucid presentations, offering an impressive opportunity to aspiring artists, visionaries, entrepreneurs, and members of the general public to express their ideas, showcase their talents, reach out, and network.
Maraya Art Centre's Manager, Giuseppe Moscatello, said, "To say that the PechaKucha series of events have been a resounding success is an understatement at the very least. These evenings have been an invaluable outlet for the creativity of the people of Sharjah and the U.A.E. and we have seen some truly remarkable concepts and ideas presented. We look forward to seeing many more talented individuals step forward to share their innovations and progressive thoughts and ideas with us and will continue to support the creativity of the people of the U.A.E.." Hosting PechaKucha Night Sharjah is in line with Maraya Art Centre's commitment to provide the community in Sharjah with a platform for creative individuals to network and be inspired.
