Event description

Description

Ok, first up what is a PechaKucha night?

Originating in Japan, it is a fast and fabulous night of individual presentations, but there is a rule... nobody can speak for more than 6 minutes and 40 seconds, which means that you really can’t afford to be boring. Each speaker will show 20 images and talk about each image for 20 seconds.

Today the event has evolved to cover a range of topical societal issues, from diverse perspectives and is presented in over 1,000 cities around the world.

What kind of things do people talk about?

Literally anything that people think worth sharing including a personal story, an idea, a project, a passion, interesting snaps and experiences from your last adventure. These are just a few examples.

PechaKucha presentations uncover the unexpected - unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different, and they turn each PechaKucha event into “a box of chocolates”.

What can I expect from PKNLDN 'Transformations' at the Geffrye?

The theme for this Pechakucha night is 'Transformations', allowing our speakers to talk about what this concept/word/topic/construct/movement means to them.

Expect an inspiring night during which 8 speakers from a mixture of industries and backgrounds will speak on this topic for no more than 6 minutes 40 seconds each!

A Pechakucha night in a garden?

YES! That's right. Making this Pechakucha night event more special is the fact that the generous folk at the Geffrye Museum of Home are hosting the event in their delightful front garden which is graced with the most beautiful dappled light.

Confirmed speakers include award-winning product design engineer Jude Pullen, Nick Cramp, Senior Partner at Max Fordham, the engineering firm currently working on the transformation of the Geffrye and lecturer on environmental design and lighting, architectural designer and graphic novelist Sabba Khan, and Sarah Saunders, Head of Learning and National Partnerships at the British Museum.
