<nettime-ann> Pecha Kucha Brussels Vol. 05 calling: 20 09 2008

Hello !

Pecha Kucha Brussels Vol. 05 calling.
Spread the word. Share the world.

Pecha Kucha, which is Japanese for the sound of conversation (bla bla), is a series of show-and-tell evenings for designers, architects, artists and creatives, started by Klein Dytham architecture in Tokyo in 2003 and now in 130 cities worldwide. The Brussels edition is launched and organised by Alok Nandi, Architempo, as part of {creativity*conversation}. It attracts a wide audience. The 5th Pecha Kucha Brussels will take place at Recyclart, on Sept. 20 at 20:20, part of the Design September programme and the Design Night.

The concept: each speaker has 6 minutes 40 sec. for a presentation in 20 images. Each image is on screen for only 20 seconds. No more, no less.
20 images x 20 seconds each. Tempo, story, tension, show-and-tell.

Enjoy the presentations and the conversations.
