PECHA KUCHA 2012
Brighton Digital Festival 2012
Friday 14 September 2012
Fast paced dynamic talks on an open theme in Pecha Kucha's famous format.
Lighthouse is pleased to host Brighton's 16th Pecha Kucha Talks Night as part of Brighton Digital Festival.
Pecha-Kucha gives people the opportunity to raise exciting, creative and sometimes controversial ideas, using the Pecha-Kucha style, which is fun and fast-paced. The unique format of Pecha-Kucha gives each presenter six minutes and 40 seconds to share 20 visual images each held for 20 seconds on a screen, keeping the event dynamic and fluid.
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
