Tyler, THERE Five geeks walk into a bar.

No, this is not one of the jokes. No joke at all. It is the latest in a series of initiatives by 40-year-old nonprofit now known as Telluride Arts, formerly the Telluride Council for the Arts & Humanities. (And the five geeks are a star-studded group of local presenters. See below.)

The event takes takes place Monday, May 23, 8 p.m. at THERE.

twenty(by)telluride is meant to be a fun and creative monthly gathering designed to showcase innovation, knowledge, ideas, and creativity of Telluride community members. The get-together is based on PechaKucka Night and TED.

PechaKucka Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.

In most cities and towns, Telluride included, public spaces where people can show and share their work in relaxed manner are few and far between. If you have just graduated from college and finished your first project in the real world, where can you show it? If you a working artist with a growing body of work but no gallery, how do you find an audience? If have just had a lightbulb moment, who do you share it with to make it real and practical?

Locally, twenty(by)telluride becomes the perfect platform to show and share your ideas and work.

Twenty(by)telluride’s no-miss formula:

20 slides
+ 20 seconds each
÷ a theme
X  5 incredible presenters

The first group of presenters includes:

writer Rob Story
architect Jodie Wright
artist Flair Robinson
filmmaker Suzanne Beraza
artist Dan Collins

The theme is PASSION.

twenty(by)telluride will be held monthly throughout the summer and is FREE and open to the public.
