Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Pecha Kucha Brum

On 8 September at the Old Joint Stock, Birmingham has its first Pecha Kucha night. Pecha Kucha is a simple way of presenting information. Twenty images are shown in a slideshow for twenty seconds each. The images forward automatically and a presentation is made along to the images. It is a format for people to share ideas, works, thoughts, even holiday snaps. It forces the speaker to be succinct in presenting information due to the strict time limit.

Pecha Kucha was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture. The first Pecha Kucha Night was held in Tokyo in their gallery, lounge, bar, club, creative kitchen SuperDeluxe in February 2003. They now happen around the world.

The first Pecha Kucha will be on the theme of ‘Birmingham’ and speakers will include Stuart Garlick, Lorna Parsons, Rob Weaver and Jo Hardy. More information on the speakers can be found here.

The night starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 in advance or £7 on the door and can be bought here.
