My PechaKucha – a World Without Words
“It’s easy,” Jacques said, ” Just 20 slides, 20 seconds a slide.”
NO, IT ISN’T FOLKS! It is actually really hard to deliver. It’s easy to write what you want to say, but then all of a sudden when the first slide slips into place, your brain has a brain fart and everything goes blank!
What does PechaKucha mean?
Well simply small chat, chit-chat.
Who invented the format?
The presentation format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture and keeps participants to a fast, concise format when delivering their talks. The first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in their gallery/lounge/bar/club/creative kitchen, SuperDeluxe, in February 2003.
What have I let myself in for? Wish me luck tonight…
