The City of Kingston is working toward redeveloping the J.K. Tett Centre at 370 King Street West — and intends to re-open it as the Tett Centre for Creativity and Learning in the late summer of 2013. This project has involved extensive public consultation with a broad spectrum of stakeholders and the wider community over numerous years. This project will create an "arts cluster" — a unique destination that brings together artists, students and the community that will be accessible to Kingston residents and area visitors alike. Developed in collaboration with Queen's University, this arts cluster will also feature the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts that will include a recital hall and theatre, rehearsal space, a screening facility and classrooms.
What's a Pecha Kucha?
Pecha Kucha night originated in Tokyo, Japan as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. Artists show 20 of their images, for 20 seconds each.
