I have been asked to participate in the Pecha-Kucha Night at CMYK on the 16th of December at 7.30 pm.
Try and make it if you can!

Here's a short explanation of the concept -

Pecha-Kucha is a specific format for presentation -- 20 slides for 20 seconds each -- resulting in a superfast, superengaging and superfun kind of experience for both presenter and audience. Pecha-Kucha was born in Tokyo, in the nightclub SuperDeluxe run by the architects Klein and Dytham. Since then, it has spread all around the world, to hundreds of cities where thousands of creative practitioners have used it to share their work and connect with each other.

Pecha-Kucha, in Japanese, means 'Chitter-Chatter' or 'Khus-Phus' or 'Bak-Bak' -- it can be translated and paraphrased as 'the rustle of conversation.' The point is not to exalt speakers, or to ask critical questions as in a press conference, but to stimulate conversations between artists and design practitioners from different fields. So presentations are lightning fast, one after another, and then the bar opens!

Here's a picture - taken by someone at CMYK. The place was overflowing with people. I was SO nervous and the slides were moving so fast! But it was fun by the end of it. Met a few good people and will hopefully get some fun stuff to work on.
Will upload more pictures when and if I find them.
Check back for the presentation.
