Speakers line up for chit chat event
A series of snappy presentations will discuss everything from Auckland’s transport woes to its volcanic geography at a free event in Silo Park on March 28.
Pecha Kucha, which is Japanese for chit chat, sees prominent and emerging creative presenters given 20 slides and just 20 seconds per slide to discuss their ideas with an audience.
The free event was scheduled for January but was rained off.
The concept was created in Tokyo in 2003 for young designers to share their ideas, work, thoughts and even holiday photos in a simple presentation format.
Ecologist and photographer Alastair Jamieson, Food Forest NZ’s James Samuel, Waterfront Auckland’s Dr Stephen Rainbow, SkyPath director Bevan Woodward and Green Party transport spokeswoman Julie Anne Genter will all present.
Silo Cinema will screen the film The Human Scale, which offers a critical view on the way we build and use our cities, after the discussions.
The presentation starts at 8.20pm and the film screens at 9pm.
Chit chat: SkyPath director Bevan Woodward is one of the speakers at Pecha Kucha on March 28.
