Super Duper Excitement

by - Thursday, March 06, 2008

Last year, HandyMan and I organized Toronto’s first Pecha Kucha. “Pecha Kucha” is a Japanese term which means “the sound of conversation”. A Pecha Kucha is also a global phenomenon… it’s a forum where architects and designers can get together and network and discuss their newest works and most original ideas. The event itself has a distinct format: presenters show 20 slides, each slide for 20 seconds. This creates a fast-paced, high-energy event – each presenter has only 6 minutes 40 seconds to dazzle you with their creativity.

Well, we’re doing it again! Pecha Kucha Toronto vol.2 will be held on Friday, May 23rd as part of the opening of the Doors Open weekend. The finer details are still being worked out but we are extremely excited because THIS is where we’re having the event:

Yeah, baby. That's the Royal Ontario Museum, with its spectacular new Daniel Libeskind-designed Crystal. More details to follow… but if you’ve got a suggestion on a great presenter, let me know!
