Event description

Description

Yarra Libraries is partnering with Here Studio to host the next Melbourne Pecha Kucha event.

Launched in Tokyo in 2003, Pecha Kucha Night has become a massive celebration with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Each Pecha Kucha Night is run by a city organiser. In Melbourne, the organisers are Here Studio, an interdisciplinary design practice run by Ammon Beyerle. At the core of Here Studio’s practice is a social principle of participation and the studio use art, architecture, design, and events to activate change in the urban realm.

Pecha Kucha is based on a simple presentation format. Each speaker must present using 20 slides with 20 seconds allocated per slide and a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds to communicate a point and contribute to the heated debate that we have curated.The reason for the format: Architects and creative people talk too much. Pecha Kucha is about getting to the point! The traditional Pecha Kucha Night is an informal and fun gathering where creative people get together and share their ideas, latest projects and thoughts using the 20x20 format. However, in the proposed event we have made some adjustments and it has a more pronounced communal approach.

Ten leading spokespeople and emerging speakers from Yarra have been invited to come in and speak to a theme that we have set with the intention of instigating discussion, argument and activate interaction.

The title of the theme is – A protest Against Forgetting with more details to be released through the website soon.

The session is about us, the local, and is a refusal to forget the past as it is a resilient and important part of our shared present.

Held in the bright upstairs communal room that opens out to a beautiful rooftop garden at the new Nth Fitz branch, delicious food will be provided through Atherton Gardens Women’s Group, drinks, and fun will be on tap.

Book now or miss out! It’s Free!

Bookings essential. You do not need to bring a ticket with you to this event.
