On 27 November at 20.00, we invite you to join PechaKucha Night Brussels Volume 67 edition, which is organised by Architempo in partnership with Beci.
What is PechKucha?
The PechaKucha, translated from Japanese as 'chit-chat', is a storytelling format that uses images rather than reading text from the slides.
It was devised and shared by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham Architecture. The first PechaKucha took place in 2003 in Tokyo, and today more than 1,300 cities have PechaKucha Nights.
What is the PechaKucha format?
The PechaKucha concept: each speaker has 400 seconds - 6 minutes 40 sec - for a presentation in 20 images. Each image is on screen for only 20 seconds, and they auto-advance. No more, no less.
PechaKucha nights typically have 8-14 presentations, and topics are diverse.
PechaKucha in Brussels
The Brussels edition was launched by Alok b. Nandi of Architempo in Brussels in 2007, and to date it has had more than 1,000 speakers sharing their narrative in 400 seconds - this is 6 minutes 40 seconds.
What will speakers talk about?
Creating and growing their companies, sustainability and innovation, challenges and successes of their business, and many more.
