We’ve been invited to participate in PechaKucha Nashville’s PechaKucha Night on December 5th and you’re invited! It’s going to be a great night full of creative, fun people and the sharing of new ideas and we hope you’ll join us.
We’re sure you have a few questions (mainly: What is PechaKucha?), so we compiled a few FAQs for you.
1. What is PechaKucha 20×20?
PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.
2. Was PechaKucha the first format like this?
We have all heard of elevator pitches, a presentation so short you could pitch it to someone in an elevator. 20 seconds x 20 images is a bit longer than that, but the idea is the same: short, concise presentations. There’s no “next slide” or “go back one, please” at PechaKucha Nights.
3. What are PechaKucha Nights?
PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps — just about anything, really — in the PechaKucha 20×20 format.
4. Is PechaKucha Night like TED?
Many people have said “oh, so you’re like a local TED!” A very nice complement, but not quite right. TED is brilliant, but very different to PechaKucha. TED is top down, PechaKucha is bottom up! Deanne the hooper, Astrid’s daughter, or Mark’s mum could not present at TED, but they had awesome stories to share at PechaKucha Nights.
