PK 5 went really well, heaps of fun with some incredibly interesting and amusing speakers. Lots of laughter and applause, chocolate and Emmerson’s beer – it was terrific.
Thankfully I was on before the The Dust Palace, a burlesque group. G-strings and shaving cream would have been a hard act to follow.
A recording should be posted on the International Pecha Kucha site soon.

A Pecha Kucha night is like an action-packed slide show. 12 invited presenters show 20 images each, with only 20 seconds to speak to each image (a total of 6.40 minutes per presentation). The magic is the rapid-fire presentation and the diversity of presenters and topics on the night. It is about bringing artists and designers together to share their ideas. Pecha Kucha Nights now take place in over 230 cities around the world.
