I’ve been to the last few pecha kucha held at the ICA in London. They were fantastic, what a brillient idea. Really good to hear the thoughts of creatives from different industrys.
If you have not heard what pecha kucha is here is a quick guide from the pecha kucha web site:
“The Japanese term ‘Pecha Kucha’ roughly translates as ‘chit-chat.’ Up to fourteen participants get to show 20 slides for 20 seconds each, meaning the audience experiences an exhilarating range of speakers and images over the course of the evening. There’s also music, drinking and the inevitable exchange of ideas that occurs when you get so many architects, designers, artists and so on together in the same room.
The Pecha Kucha format was formulated by the Tokyo-based outfit Klein Dytham Architects. Icon magazine’s editor Marcus Fairs and design writer and curator Max Fraser have brought the event to the UK and organise all events across the country. In London, they have teamed up with The Club at the ICA with a series of events planned throughout the year.”
So if you have not been to one yet or couldnt get a ticket they will be holding the worlds largest Pecha Kucha in Sadler’s Wells Theatre.
