Aki just informed me that they had raised over $1,000 from the raffle alone for relief funds to the crisis in Japan on Pecha Kucha Night this past Monday! So awesome. Here is the link to the page: http://www.wssf.com/event/pecha-kucha-1. It is a series of 20 second presentations with images and words. Aki described it as a “powerpoint presentation on crack”. Very entertaining. See you there next year!
PechaKucha, devised in 2003 and named for the sound of ‘chit chat’ in Japanese, is the worldwide phenomenon held in hundreds of cities worldwide. A rapid fire form of PowerPoint presentation and connection, PechaKucha allows for 20 images at 20 seconds each then onto the next speaker. Now held as a massive celebration and opportunity for young designers and entrepreneurs to meet, network and show their work in public, PechaKucha delivers on all levels, keeping the concept grassroots, passionate and high-speed.
Thanks to everyone for coming out last night, best PechaKucha Night ever! We raised over $1500 for the Canadian Red Cross so thanks for all your support, follow @pknwhistler on Twitter to get updates on upcoming events.
