Sometimes Japanese emoticons say it best, so let me start this off with:
Maybe the nights are just sporadic as there were two events held in February.
Regardless, I’ll just have to keep an ear to the earth for the next event when it comes around because it seems like a really neat concept!
“PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation (“chit chat”), it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds.
It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.”
PechaKucha has been equated to sort of a TED Talks for artists and designers. Over 100 of the presentations are posted online for your enjoyment. It is always interesting to learn what inspires different individuals and catch a glimpse into what makes them tick.
Eager to see what Boston brings to the table at the next event! ♥
