<nettime-ann> invitation: Pecha Kucha Night Brussels 20/11


pechakucha banner


We want to invite you for a particular kind of talking, listening and 
networking evening:

Pecha Kucha, which is Japanese for the sound of conversation, is a series of show-and-tell evenings for designers, architects, artists and creatives, started by Klein Dytham architecture in Tokyo in 2003.

Since then, groups have sprung up in cities across the world (over 80 so far) and adopted the Pecha Kucha format: each presenter has 20 slides which are displayed for 20 seconds each.

Pecha Kucha taps into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown. With the 20x20 format, presentations are concise, the interest level goes up, and more people get the chance to show their ideas.

The Brussels format includes designers, architects, artists, scientists, fashion designers, photographers, musicians, and creative entrepreneurs.

Tuesday 20 November at 20:20
We recommend that you arrive half an hour early.

Rue Alphonse Dewittestraat 18, 1050 Elsene-Ixelles
