A Designer New Years Resolution

Council Interior

Nottingham Council House is playing host to an innovative creative networking event on February 3rd called Design Resolutions. The event is the brainchild of Sarah Davenport (Davenport Interiors) and Susi Henson (Eternal Spirits)  and will take the form of a Pecha Kucha

Pecha Kucha – usually pronounced in three syllables like “pe-chak-cha”, is a presentation format in which content can be easily, efficiently and informally shown, usually at a public event designed for that purpose. Under the format, a presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds apiece, for a total time of 6 minutes, 40 seconds.”

(Thanks to Wikipedia for explaining that on my behalf!)

Each guest is being invited to show 20 images which represent a new years resolution related to their business, the idea being that diverse creative businesses can share experiences, help and inspire one another to start the new year with plenty of zeal in this difficult financial climate. Guests are also invited to bring their own food for a shared picnic and to agree to collaborate or help out another business in the room (picked at random) in the new year, adding to the informality of the event. The whole event will be filmed and available to view online and is creating quire a stir with the local press!

If you’re interested in getting involved contact Susi Henson on info at   for more information.
