PechaKucha Bangkok at the Neilson Hays Library; After two very successful re-booted installments in 2012, PechaKucha Bangkok is set to do it again on Jan. 23 at the Neilson Hays Library from 6.30pm.
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in more than 500 cities around the world, inspiring creative people worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
With an eye to keeping the venue in a very creative space, the organisers are partnering with Bangkok’s oldest public library, the Neilsen Hays Library. There will be food, drinks, and music, ensuring things are upbeat and fun, with 10 creative speakers strutting their stuff.
