Pecha Kucha, a night of graphic design, architecture, and art presentations returns to the Academy Art Center at Linekona on March 13, 6:30 – 9p.m. Visitors mingle over free wine in the Art Center’s garden, then sit in front of a big screen for fast-paced visual shows by local creative minds.
Created in Tokyo in 2003 by designers Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, Pecha Kucha’s formula is simple. Presenters at each event are allowed to show 20 images, each for 20 seconds of their latest design project. Think of it as 6 minutes and 40 seconds of a speed show-and-tell. The event has become so popular that it takes place in over 170 cities worldwide. Pecha Kucha Honolulu goers can also enjoy music by Curtis Kamiya and Matt Snow and complimentary pupu. The event is free.
