20×20: Oh Bleep

Even the most decorated professional has a few missteps. 

That’s why AIGA Houston is hosting a first-of-its-kind event in September for the local creative community. The format is PechaKucha, a presentation of 20 slides, 20 seconds each, on the theme of failure. Presenters will share lessons from hiccups, losses and rejections in their creative process and careers to encourage a spirit of experimentation, failure and innovation.

6:30 PM — Check In and Social 
7:30 PM — Presentation
