Pecha-Kucha Is Japanese for Chit Chat

abstract:You've heard of TED talks. Now there's Pecha-Kucha Night. Pecha Kucha is the Japanese translation for the sound of the words "chit chat". It's a simple principle. Get speakers to gather 20 slides encapsulating their creative work or process and speak to each slide for 20 seconds. In the space of one evening you can learn a whole lot about the creative people around you. The presentation format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture. The first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in their gallery-lounge-bar-club or creative kitchen called the SuperDeluxe in February 2003. It has now become a global organization with events held worldwide. Klein Dytham architecture still organize and support the global PechaKucha Night network and organise PechaKucha Night Tokyo. For the second year now, it comes to Whistler BC to be held during the now famous bike festival called "Crankworx. Aug 7-15th 2010". Presenters include:

- Tyler Schramm, Schramm Vodka
- Rick Harry, Aboriginal Artist
- Keith Reynolds, Playground Builders
- Robin O'Neill - Photographer
- Peter Alder, Ecosign Mountain Resort Planners
- Leslie Anthony, Writer
- Paula Shackleton, Bookbuffet
- Carla Gutierrez, Fitness Model

Here is an example of one talk.
