Pecha Kucha Brisbane – Sweet 16

May 26, 2010

Pecha Kucha Brisbane turned Sweet 16 on Tuesday 25 May 2010 with it’s 16th volume held at the Brisbane Powerhouse. It was the third event I attended that evening and well worth the effort and co-ordination to get there on time!

To help celebrate, the founder of Pecha Kucha, architect Mark Dytham, was in Brisbane and featured as one of the presenters. Now here’s a man with passion and the event comes with a cool history.

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Since then, 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 “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.

The calibre of speakers and topics on the 25th were possibly some of the most engaging I’ve seen so far. I feel really honored to have participated last year.
