Pecha Kucha

What the heck is a Pecha Kucha?


A Pecha Kucha is a presentation format used to combat “death by powerpoint”, and is a format many creative professionals are using to present their work. It is designed to be 20 slides shown for 20 seconds each, with self advancing slides so you can’t blather on and on. We use this methodology in Artist Inc because it really requires you to hone your message and think thru what the critical parts of your story are.

In preparation for presenting my PK for a ArtsKC Donor event next week I recorded it so I can listen to it in the van this weekend as we drive to Arkansas. Of course next week I will be doing it live in front of real people. Yikes!
