  • And then PK into my life…I didn’t find it, it found me. I was participating in an online faculty learning community, and through this community… The way they described it sounded interesting, up my alley – sharing design work in a small theater, very intimate, quick pace. Lots of design professionals. I was look for connections with other design professionals – architecture, digital design, graphic artists, and so on – so when they invited me I went.
  • Explanation of 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.It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. PK 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.Currently, PK Nights are held in 252 cities. – Could ask audience to share where they are from, look it up to see if it is on the list.
  • How the formula worksHow many in an evening?Totally engaged audience. Amazing energy in the room. Lots of ideas and inspiration, and cross-fertilization and connecting. And, 10 presentations went by in a blink. Although it was 10pm at night when I left – after a full work day – I was energized. I went home and wrote about the experience immediately.
  • Talk about the community of like-minded folks, inspired by the talksDesign professions represented that first night: architects, digital and graphic designers, fabric designers, sculpters, photographers, clothes and purse designers, writers, dancers.
  • I was hooked, and kept going back. Besides the experience itself, and how it made me feel and think, I was impressed with the process involved in having to create a PK experience. The thoughtfulness applied to the compiling of images, what to say, and what to let say for itself. In terms of delivering the presentation, I notice the use of silence, props. At least in this theater space, there was an intimacy, with the presenter – although on a rise – part of the audience. The presenters sprang up from the audience when they were called. People sitting on chairs, cushions, blankets.
  • The structure holds the informality together. This informality means there is more room for presenter creativity.
