Pecha Kucha Vol. 9 at the Ateneo
Hasta: Febrero 10, 2012 - 10:00 pm
For a second time, and as part of the “Festival Verde de Cultura Musical”, the Ateneo at the City of Knowledge will host the Pecha Kucha Vol. 9 on Friday, February 10th, starting at 7:00 p.m.
Pecha Kucha is a presentation format (mostly creative) during which a person exhibits a work in a simple and informal way. Originally created by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, of Klein-Dytham Architecture, in Tokyo in 2003, as a meeting point for young designers where they could show their works in public and exchange opinions. Since then, the format has extended like a virus to many cities across the world. The name Pecha Kucha derives from a Japanese term that imitates the sound of a conversation (“chit-chat”).
TBWA Panamá and Social Snack coordinate and organize each one of the Pecha Kucha Panama episodes.
The presenters (and a great part of the audience) come from the fields of design, architecture, photography and art, although the phenomenon has extended recently to the business world. The objective is to show new, innovative and creative ideas. Pecha Kucha has been copied in more than 300 cities in all of the continents and each city must organize at least 4 meetings a year.
For people with tickets to the “Festival Verde de Cultura Musical” the entrance is free of charge.
