Pecha Kucha Night, is a world-wide phenomenon and it happens right here in Vancouver. It’s an evening filled with inspiration, creativity, and artistic passion. Volume #6 is happening May 21, 2009 (7:00pm) at the Park Theatre (3440 Cambie Street) - it’s only $10 and it sells out so purchase your tickets online ASAP.

Never heard of Pecha Kucha before? Here’s how it works: each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each - giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show. It’s kinda like show and tell for creatives (but don’t worry, it’s not commercial).

Pecha Kucha (which is Japanese for the sound of conversation) has tapped into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown, without having to rent a gallery or chat up a magazine editor. This is a† demand that seems to be global - as Pecha Kucha Night, without any pushing, has spread virally to over 100 cities across the world.
