Mixed bag of designs 

Creative minds are a bit like ants: One of them is a whisper in the wind, but a mass of them could carry you down a hole and eat your brains out, like in that scene in the new Indiana Jones movie. Five years ago, two architects in Tokyo devised Pecha Kucha Night as a forum for young designers to share their current obsessions. Each presenter is allowed a slide show of 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds. The event is open to architects, designers, photographers, artists, writers, poets, and assorted movers and shakers, as well as onlookers who just want to be inspired. "It's sort of a show-and-tell for the creative crowd," says organizer Jayne Higdon, an architect with Gould Evans. Reservations are strongly recommended for tonight's inaugural Kansas City Pecha Kucha Night at Bar Natasha (1911 Main, 816-472-5300). The free event begins at 7:30 p.m., and presentations begin at 8:20.;
Tue., June 10, 7:30 p.m., 2008
