What is Pecha Kucha? Well if you haven’t had the pleasure to experience it yet, here is the exact definition according to Google of what the word means and how to actually pronounce: Pecha Kucha |ペチャクチャ, usually pronounced in three syllables as “pe-chak-cha”, is the onomatopoeic Japanese word for the sound of conversation. The equivalent English term is “chit-chat”.
“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 “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.”
I’m particularly excited to hear Margot Leigh Butler speak about the amazing Humanities 101 project. Humanities 101 is a 12 year old community education program which offers free public education on the DTES and free non-credit courses at the University of British Columbia to residents of the DTES and nearby areas who are passionate about learning and who live with material poverty.
Go experience an amazing evening of inspiration at the beautiful Vogue Theatre, with a stellar line up of presenters and a glass of wine…or two
See ya there!
