Pecha Kucha Night Volume #2

22 04 2009

Once again I have the great privilege to do a presentation at the Pecha Kucha Night which will be held at LE PATIO ,Dias Pier Caudan Phase II building. The second volume of this worldwide event will be held on Friday the 24th of April 2009. I still remember the first Mauritian Pecha Kucha night which was held a few months back, in February to be precise. 

What is Pecha Kucha Night?

Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.

This is explained in more details on the global Pecha Kucha site http://www.pecha-kucha.org/

” Pecha Kucha Night, devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham (Klein Dytham architecture), was conceived in 2003 as a place for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.

But as we all know, give a mike to a designer (especially an architect) and you’ll be trapped for hours. The key to Pecha Kucha Night is its patented system for avoiding this fate. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.

Pecha Kucha (which is Japanese for the sound of conversation) has tapped into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown, without having to rent a gallery or chat up a magazine editor. This is a† demand that seems to be global – as Pecha Kucha Night, without any pushing, has spread virally to over 100 cities across the world. Find a location and join the conversation. ”

The first event was awesome. It’s really nice to see Mauritius participating in such global events. In the first volume I gave a general presentation on Photography and my photography style.  This time I think I’ll focus more on EVENT Photography which includes weddings, concerts, and other live performances. 

So be there guys, it’s gonna be an awesome night. Of course, I’ll post photos of the event afterwards. Meanwhile, you can join the facebook group HERE.

Cheers
