Tonight is PechaKucha night (that's pronounced "petcha-kootcha"). This will be the fourth time we will have run this event.
So, what's PechaKucha? PechaKucha is a simple presentation format where you create a slideshow comprising 20 images with each image being displayed for only 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and the objective is that you have those 20 seconds to describe the image and why you have chosen it.
PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps - just about anything, really - in the PechaKucha 20x20 format. 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.”
So, like AV nights, this is a members' event and we need members to contribute to the evening. All you need to do is to produce a file of 20 images and be prepared to talk about these images. They don't need to have a common theme, although it's probably best if they do. You don’t even need to produce a slideshow. Just bring along your 20 images on a portable device on the night or email them to Brian in advance at email@example.com and he'll do the rest.
