PechaKucha in Bali

Bali Joins Worldwide PechaKucha Event on February 20, 2010 to Assist Victims of Haiti Earthquake.

(2/22/2010) 

PechaKucha 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

Supported by the Bali Creative Community (BCC), the PechaKucha Global Movement will meet in Bali at the Gaya Gallery in Ubud on Saturday, February 20, 2010, starting at 8:00 pm. Intended to network and interconnect, the Bali event will be just one stop in a 24-hour global PechaKucha dialogue that will include 200 cities, 2,000 presentations and an estimated 200,000 people. The event will be broadcast in real time via their website with the 2,000 presentations then permanently lodged on line [PechaKucha for Haiti Website].

The website will also have a facility for making on-line donations to support the Haiti relief effort via Architecture for Humanity.

Bali Creative Community (BCC)

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.

An open forum, those already confirmed to make a 20 image presentation at the Gaya Gallery PechaKucha Event include photographer Rio Helmi, architect Putu Edy Semara, sculptor Pintor Sirait, artist Marlow Bandem, Designer and surfer girl Audry Lamou and One-Dollar-for-Music Foundation member Raoul Wijffes.
