You don't have to be any good at drawing, nor does it need to look like the thing you're trying to describe...you don't even have to make it to the end of the sketch before you begin articulating the next bit. You just pick it up, start scribbling and everything else just begins to flow.
It's amazing really; no matter how far or fast technology advances, there is still no quicker or better way to get your thoughts and ideas out than by connecting your brain directly to paper with a pen or pencil. Where you go from there is a choice we leave to you...
"Drawing is great for the brain – it helps improve hand-eye coordination, sharpens our observation skills, and reduces stress, as well as being used in a range of mental health and well-being therapies".
~ Laura Travis, Museums Sheffield’s Visitor Engagement Manager

Can't wait to see you all again.

When & Where
Pecha Kucha Sheffield
...a business social that's more a night out...
...it'll get your heart skipping and your mind racing!
Pecha Kucha, meaning ‘chit chat’ in Japanese, is a global, viral phenomenon running in over 800 cities across the world. Sheffield became the 300th PK City on the Planet in April 2010 and has run 16 events at 14 different venues to date.
The evening is based around the 20x20 format, which was first started in Japan in 2003 by the architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham. Each presenter uses 20 slides, set to auto advance every 20 seconds to present their subject or showcase their work.
