LA’s Pecha Kucha Night #2

LA’s second Pecha Kucha Night is Friday evening, March 26, at the Androscoggin Chamber of Commerce, 415 Lisbon Street, Lewiston. Everyone is welcome!!

Pecha Kucha Night (PKN) Is a high energy evening of creative folks sharing creative ideas on a level playing field. A presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds each. That’s six minutes and 40 seconds to energize the audience with their ideas, project, art work, and creativity.

This is a REAL social networking evening about interaction, direct feedback, eye contact, and so much more energy than we can get from a computer screen, yet enough structure that everyone gets involved. No one monopolizes the mic and no one gets bored. The pace is fast, but there is plenty of time built into the evening for people to meet, network, and talk about the presentations.

PKN was started in Tokyo by Klein Dytham Architecture in 2003 as a way for young designers to meet, network and show their work. The 20×20 concept was so energizing and so popular that it has expanded to many situations and venues in over 245 cities globally. Pecha Kucha Night is now a trademarked event. It is a REAL social networking evening about interaction, direct feedback, eye contact, and so much more energy than we can get from a computer screen, yet enough structure that everyone gets involved.
