Pecha Kucha IX
September 17, 2013
Pecha Kucha, Japanese for the sound of conversation, is a mix of show-and-tell, open-mike night and happy hour that has become a forum for ideas on design, architecture and other forms of creativity. Devised in 2003 in Tokyo, Pecha Kucha Night has spread virally to over 135 cities around the world as an informal forum for creative people to meet, network and show their work in public. In this format, each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for just 20 seconds, giving 6 minutes 40 seconds to make an impact. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.
Citadel Fine Art Professor Tiffany Silverman presented to an audience of over 300 local creatives during Pecha Kucha 19 and received a standing ovation.
