Not familiar with the PechaKucha Night framework? Here are the details:

[blockquote align=”center”]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 at a rapid pace. (taken from the PechaKucha official website)[/blockquote] [blockquote align=”center”]Collaborative, Interdisciplinary, International, Technologically-innovative and Engaged.[/blockquote] [blockquote align=”center”]Good PechaKucha presentations are the ones that uncover the unexpected — unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different, and they turn each PechaKucha Night into “a box of chocolates. (view the PechaKucha FAQ for more information)[/blockquote]

    Hi Emilia,

    This is a fantastic idea! Do you have enough students yet for the September event? I am planning to promote this to students on a blog we just started for LSA sophomores and/or on an event calendar also targeted towards our sophomores. I can promote it as a cool series to attend and/or to present at, depending on what I hear back from you. Thanks.

    Best,
    Marjorie

    Very cool. What is the nature of the presentations–information, tech, work, innovative ideas, anything?

      Hi Martika,

      Thanks for your interest! The nature of the presentations can be anything you feel passionate about. At our Student Night on September 19, the presentation topics ranged from international experiences to student organizations, alternative art spaces, educational goals and even one experimental presentation about “Girls”. Here are a few examples of the variety of PechaKucha presentations that have been presented:Jeff Hamada, Exercise, What the Hell is Beer? and Creative Politics.
