Pecha Kucha. WTF is that?!?!?!

Well, for those of you who don’t know, Pecha Kucha is pretty much a speed show and tell for graphic designers, artists, and the like.  It’s a series of 20 images, displayed for 20 seconds each.  So, think of it as a 6 minutes, 40 second barage of imagery from some of Hawaii’s most creative minds.  The images tell a story, and, due to the nature of the time limit, forces the more chatty to speed it up and get through to the next person.

Pecha Kucha (which is Japanese for the sound of conversation) allows the participant to experience the art and design, without having to sit through a boring lecture. It’s fun, fast paced, and allows for an opportunity to network, all at the same time.

This event goes down tonight at the Academy of Art Center at Linekona (1114 Victoria St.).  Doors open at 630pm.  The show is free to the public, though parking might be a problem.  Make sure you get there early enough to get a good spot.
