Artists, historians, graphic designers, architects, community planners, graduate students and everyone in between are invited to submit a pecha kucha style presentation to be juried into "Charlotte and the Convention." The event will be limited to 10 presentations and take place from 1:30 - 3:00 pm on Friday, August 31, 2012 at Queens University of Charlotte.

All are welcome to submit.
The Knight School of Communication at Queens University of Charlotte is hosting an innovative learning opportunity surrounding the Democratic National Convention. On August 30 and 31, 2012, students will gather at the university to learn about the relationships between politics, conventions, cities, and the media, and then during the convention, these students will be active in Charlotte serving in supporting roles for convention guests, national and local media, and non-profit organizations.
