NEXT EVENT VOL 15

Join us for a classic PechaKucha night at Proud East! Tickets available at here!!

For Vol. 15 of the London PechaKucha team are collaborating with Proud East on Regents Canal in Haggerston to bring you a classic PechaKucha evening with 7 talks from 7 inspiring speakers with plenty of Japanese beer flowing and other delicious treats at the ready.

Why does this collab work so well?! Well, Proud East are currently hosting Pop Up Japan - which fuses Tokyo’s dynamic cultural hub with century old customs. And with very concept of PechaKucha nights coming from Superdeluxe in Tokyo - how could we resist?!

Exactly what is PechaKucha 20x20? PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.

What kind of things do people talk about? Literally anything that people think worth sharing including a personal story, an idea, a project, a passion, interesting snaps and experiences from your last adventure, these are just a few examples.

PechaKucha presentations uncover the unexpected -- unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different, and they turn each PechaKucha event into “a box of chocolates”.

Xavier De Kestelier gave this PechaKucha talk at the special PechaKucha Night held at Hassell studio; his place of work.

F@%* your PASSION

BY AMBER-JEAN NEALE
@ PECHAKUCHA 20X20 AS PART OF KICK OVER THE STATUES AT HASSELL ON MAR 02, 2017

Amber-Jean Neale shares with us how she found her passion - once she was given a pearl of wisdom of where to go looking for it - "you already know what your passion is, you are just ignoring it, it is what you do when you have a spare five minutes in a day" (this defintely made the audience at the Marhc 2017 PechaKucha Night in London think).

So Amber took up tattooing; and what a fine job she is doing! 

Amber as an artist think's it is the biggest compliment that someone wants your artwork on their body - too true!

There is no difference between art, life and love.

In 'There is no difference between art, life and love' artist Feline Minne shares with us some of her brilliantly colourful and delightful art pieces.

We want Feline's art all over our walls!

Kick Over the Statues

In this PechaKucha talk given at a special one-off PechaKucha Night at HASSELL studios, Ewen Spencer shares with us the ever interesting details of how his most recent photographic project came to be -'Kick over the statues'; which explores the existence of youth tribes and subcultures in the UK.

Photographed along the route of the 2016 Notting Hill Carnival in London, and in urban locations in Liverpool, Ewen portrays a stark vision of today’s youth. He recalls the history of British subcultures, while shining a light on its very contemporary incarnations. Notably, Ewen's work provides a history of the DANCEFLOOR - what more you could want!
