Topic for Saturday, March 11, 2017: When I Was a Kid...
Pecha Kucha Night is all about thinking, drinking, and sharing ideas. The event is filled with short 6 minute presentations that revolve around the specific theme of that night.
What is PechaKucha 20x20? PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.
Who invented the format? The presentation format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture. The first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in their gallery/lounge/bar/club/creative kitchen, SuperDeluxe, in February, 2003.
Why invent this format? Because architects talk too much! Give a microphone and some images to an architect -- or most creative people for that matter -- and they'll go on forever! Give PowerPoint to anyone else and they have the same problem.
What are PechaKucha Nights? PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps -- just about anything, really -- in the PechaKucha 20x20 format.
To be a presenter, you must contact the organizers (see below) and submit an application ten days before the event. Each event has a theme or topic.
