What Is Pekoe Koochoo?
PechaKucha Nights can truly be found everywhere -- we are in over 730 cities after all -- and here's a great piece from Canada's The Globe and Mail newspaper about someone's first encounter with PechaKucha in the tiny town of Mount Forest, Ontario. I spotted a poster for “Pecha Kucha” to be held in the library on Thursday, and the tickets were to be purchased at her gallery. “What is pekoe koochoo?” I asked, struggling with the unusual name. “It started in Japan,” Louise explained, “with architects. They wanted to be able to show their peers their latest projects, but would talk about them endlessly for hours. So, someone said let’s pick a night, and here are the rules: You can show 20 photographs, but you can only speak on each one for 20 seconds.” Read the full article here.
