Event description
CMEG’s First Collaboration with Chicago’s PechaKucha 20x20! The theme to the SIX presentations is “That Belongs in a Museum… Or Not”.

About this Event

As Indiana Jones declared about the Cross of Coronado, “That belongs in a museum!” What do you think deserves to be on exhibit? There are countless objects that could be put on display, but are there also items that shouldn’t be in a museum?

Join the Chicago Museum Exhibitors Group and PechaKucha to hear six presenters share their stories about objects that belong in a museum… or not.

*PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.

Agenda:

  • 5:30 PM ARRIVAL
  • 6-7:00 PM CMEG PechaKucha (6 presenters)
  • 7-8:00 PM Networking, Snacks and Cash bar
  • 8-10:30 pm PechaKucha, Women’s Edition- be sure to stay for the official Pechakucha event!
