*Pecha Kucha

For an hour six street photographers show and comment 20 pictures each. Each picture is shown for exactly 20 seconds. This is quite demanding both on the photographer and on the audience. The photographers that will take to the stage are: Jari Kokko, Anna Lithander, Manfred Svärd, Eva Boije af Gennäs, Linda Svensson and Gunnar Fägersten Novik.

The Festival location

Vega Brewery on Ringön – it doesn’t get more street than this.
Address: Manufakturgatan 2, Ringön, Gothenburg.

The location for the festival is chosen with great care. Vega Brewery is located right by the river, neighbor with the new bridge, the Hisingsbron. You will become aware that this is a place that breathes street photography, from the moment you approach until you are inside the doors. Foods and drinks are available. The beer of this micro brewery is definitely part of the experience. The bar and the kitchen are constructed from an old remodeled shipping container. The beer is poured from taps installed in recycled lockers from an old changing room.
It is really easy to get there. By bike is of course a great way, or by trams number 5, 6, 10 or 13 to the stop Frihamnen. Walking there will take around 10 minutes from the Central Station via the new bridge Hisingsbron.

And of course you will be able to get back as well. This is what it says on Vega’s homepage:

How do you get home?
Swim (350 meters to Gullbergskaj).
Bus 47
Taxi
Hook arms and walk back to town in a group.
Knock on the door on one of the cool house boats.
