PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo, Japan, in 2003 as an event where young designers can meet, network and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world (777 at the time of printing, to be exact!), inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of ‘chit-chat’, PechaKucha rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
Arts House and here studio are very excited to present PechaKucha Melbourne Volume #25 – a PechaKucha for a new beginning, and the opening party for Going Nowhere.
Around Victorian election time, we ask our speakers to deliver their maiden speeches for a future parliament – in just 20 slides. Can they promise us vision and real action on issues that matter to us? If you were voted in, what would your stamp on the future be?
