This Fall I was invited to be a presenter at a PechaKucha Portland event at Space Gallery. I was one of 10 sharing our passions, our talents, our crafts, or our art with the same format. We each shared 20 slides and had 20 seconds for each slide. Six minutes and forty seconds to get people excited about our projects.
PechaKucha is a presentation format developed by two Japanese architechs who were tired of long and boring presentations. There must have been a lot of people who were done with long-winded presentations because now these events happen in over 700 cities around the world. For more information about this global 20 x 20 movement visit their website.
If you never been to one of these events I recommend you give it a try. It is super fun and affordable way to hear a completely random grouping of concise descriptions of things that make people tick.
