<nettime-ann> Pecha Kucha Night Dresden


Call for Participation                                


Come Come to Pecha Kucha Night; come to show your stuff, come to network, come to have a beer


Schokostudio is organising the first Pecha Kucha Night in Dresden in cooperation with the faculty of architecture of the TUD (Chair "Grundlagen des Entwerfens")!!! YEAH !

The aim is to give young creative workers a platform to show projects in public. Pecha Kucha has already spread around the world so there seems to be a need for short informal lectures. To establish Pecha Kucha Night in Dresden it will be interwoven into the lecture series Spann_Weiten.



Pecha Kucha Night is devised by Astrid Klein und Mark Dytham (klein-dytham architecture) as a patented system of presenting Projects. The intention is to give young designers a platform where they can informally show their work to the public.

Through a  system of simple but strict  rules and a high fluctuation of presenters, long, boring talks are avoided. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds– giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. Afterwards there is the chance to meet and discuss with each other. We explicitly don't want to focus only on people coming from Arts, Architecture or Design, but would like to invite everybody who wants to show own projects or ideas with enthusiasm.

Pecha Kucha Night Dresden takes place within the lecture series Spannweiten on 

10th of December 2008.
