If you thought Shin-Chan was the biggest Japanese obsession we have, you have probably not heard about 'Pecha Kucha'.
Pecha Kucha, which is the Japanese term for the sound of "chit-chat", is an informal gathering of creative minds, a concept that started off in Tokyo way back in 2003. This little idea of a tete-e-tete with creativity turned into massive celebrations all over the world, with major cities having their annual Pecha Kucha chapters.
And the good news is that the Hyderabad Creative Network, after the response received to the "Pecha Kucha Hyderabad Chapter - Vol. 1
", are back with Vol. 2, to be held on the 30th of this month.
Pecha Kucha thrives on the traditional format of 20x20, where each participant shares his or her ideas and experiences in 20 slides, spending 20 seconds on each slide. The ingenuity of the participant lies in sharing his ideas in an engaging visual format within such stringent time limits.
The speakers for the "Pecha Kucha Hyderabad Chapter-Vol. 2" are Aparna, an award-winning designer and certified scuba diver with eclectic influences; Baba Sashank, a 22-year-old Architecture graduate from the School of Planning and Architecture, JNTU; Lakshmi Prabhala, an independent photographer; Venkat, an entrepreneur from Hyderabad; Abhirami, an architect and cultural coordinator at Alliance Fran?aise
; Komal Mangu, an architect; and Vivek Durgam, a photographer.
Pecha Kucha aims to provide a platform to everyone who wants to share new, wacky and out-of-the-box ideas with like-minded people. So if you have something different to share, or want to meet some 'thinking' minds in Hyderabad, Pecha Kucha is the place to be in.
