It was conceived in February 2003 by Tokyo-based Klein Dytham architects, and since then, its popularity has only helped Pecha Kucha Nights (PKN) to reach out to more countries, including India. Now well-known as an event for people to meet, network and show their work, ideas and stories on a public platform, the latest edition of the event is soon scheduled to take place at Mumbai's Goethe Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan.
As part of the unique concept, Pecha Kucha Nights follows the 20x20 format, where 20 images will roll on the screen, and each image stays on the screen for precisely 20 seconds. Also, no speaker is allowed to hold the stage for more than 6 minutes and 40 seconds. In keeping with the format, PKN ó scheduled for February 27 ó will begin at 8.20 pm.
Attending the event needs no registration, but those interested in participating ó architects, designers, filmmakers, writers, photographers, artists and thinkers ó need to send in their presentation to email@example.com by February 25.
