PechaKucha Ė a Japanese phrase denoting the sound of conversation; chit-chat.
Founded in 2003 by architects Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein, PechaKucha
was initially conceived to provide a place and space where young designers could meet, network and show their work in public. Over time, it has evolved into a massive celebration of creativity, with events regularly being held in over 270 cities. Last year, more than 6,000 presentations were given at more than 600 PechaKucha events. [www.pecha-kucha.org
The format of PechaKucha
is simple. Be creative and do so in a presentation that can be boiled down into 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds.Keep it light, keep it lively and keep it moving.PechaKucha Global Day for Haiti

This is part of a continuing series of PechaKucha
events organized by BCC
following gatherings at Museum Bali, Sanur Village Festival, Ubud Writers & Readers Festival
and Serangan Island Green Festival
. While the coming event seeks to reduce the suffering of the Haitian people, the overall goal of PechaKucha
remains the facilitation of a creative learning process by making people aware of the unexplored power of innovative thinking and creative passion, and the sharing of ideas on how to create change and promote sustainability.
