Pecha Kucha vol.45 – 7th July 2015

June 23, 2015

PechaKucha

What the faark is Pecha Kucha you ask? Invitations to this thing kept turning up in my inbox and I’ll admit due to nothing more than the name alone, I wrote it off as some kind of hippy-trippy green-fest.

A Pecha Kucha night is an event format in which presenters show a slideshow of 20 images, each of which is shown for 20 seconds – giving a total presentation time of 6 minutes 40 seconds. Each event usually has 8 – 14 presenters. Presenters (and much of the audience) are usually from the design, architecture, photography, art and creative fields.

It was only when one of the presenters asked permission to use a couple of my photos I bothered to read through the website and realised this next one is bicycle-themed.

Design, Architecture, Photography, Art, Bicycles? – This thing sounds right up my alley. It might be up yours too?

Here’s a tentative list of presenters. Bound to change, but it’ll give you an idea:
