Pecha Kucha 18


They couldn't have dreamed up a more perfect evening for the spring outdoors Pecha Kucha event.This session was held at Wragg Square in front of Second Presbterian Church. It was a glorious and perfect Charleston evening. I wasn't too sure about how long the lines might be for the pizza so I stopped at Publix and picked up picnic goodies.
Pecha Kucha, Japanese for the sound of conversation, is a mix of show-and-tell, open-mike night and happy hour that has become a forum for ideas on design, architecture and other forms of creativity. Devised in 2003 in Tokyo, Pecha Kucha Night has spread virally to over 135 cities around the world as an informal forum for creative people to meet, network and show their work in public.For more about Pecha Kucha you can visit the global website. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for just 20 seconds, 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.
