Capitol Pecha Kucha

Washington, DC Chapter of Pecha Kucha Night: 20 slides x 20 seconds at 20:20: CAPITOL PECHA KUCHA!!

Pecha Kucha Night, devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham (Klein Dytham architecture), was conceived in 2003 as a place for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.

But as we all know, give a mic to a designer (especially an architect) and you’ll be trapped for hours. The key to Pecha Kucha Night is its patented system for avoiding this fate. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.

Pecha Kucha (which is Japanese for the sound of conversation) has tapped into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown, without having to rent a gallery or chat up a magazine editor. This is a demand that seems to be global – as Pecha Kucha Night, without any pushing, has spread virally to over 500 cities across the world. www.pecha-kucha.org

Bringing design, art, and music together to the Capital of the United States. We are constantly searching for presenters, sponsors, supporters, and friends. Become part of the revolution!!
