PechaKucha Night Oakland is an occassional mixer for sharing images + ideas to fuel participants' investigation, innovation and inspiration!
WHAT IS IT?
Devised in Tokyo in February 2003 by Klein Dytham Architecture (who still co-present it) as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public, PechaKucha draws its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", Pecha Kucha Night (PKN) rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. Simply put: 6 minutes and 40 seconds of digital performance art!
people working in: architecture & landscape, interactive media, food justice, fashion, tech & design + all-around coolhunters, curators, designers, dreamers, entrepreneurs, fabricators, hackers, historians, makers, rabblerousers, scientists, ETC.
@PKN_Oak is produced & presented by Ashara Ekundayo, Weyland Southon, Scott LaRockwell, and a small but fierce group of Volunteers + cool community partners and a couple of corporate-cats.
