October 29, 2013, Pecha Kucha returns to the Berkshires. Pecha Kucha – it’s an odd name for a phenomenon that has spanned the globe to over 700 cities.
Originally conceived by a partnership of architects in Tokyo “because architects talk too much”, Pecha Kucha is essentially a presentation format. Presenters at a Pecha Kucha night get to share 20 images, for 20 seconds each, in order to transmit an idea or project to an audience. Though sprouted in the world of architecture, Pecha Kucha’s ability to generate crackling community connections made the format appealing beyond the world of the built environment. Anyone willing to adhere to the form can participate.
The Berkshire Museum hosts this upcoming Berkshires installment. This is the eighth installment of Pecha Kucha Pittsfield – “The Halloween Edition”. Because of the proximity of Halloween, anyone in a costume gets free admission (regular admission is $5). Wandering Star Craft Brewery is the official purveyor of refreshments for this event.
For best results, bring a friend, and book your rooms now if you haven’t already. Whether you attend as a spectator or a participant, the evening should bring surprises, humor, and good cheer.
