Pecha Kucha, a intriguing way to present creatives ideas and work that began in Tokyo, is coming to Redruth, Cornwall. In a Pecha Kucha, each speaker has 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to put across their message. The thinking behind the format is that it forces presenters to be brief and structured, so their information is easily understood by the audience.
On Tuesday 26th October, from 5.30-8pm at the Melting Pot Cafe, Krowji, Redruth, guests are invited to listen to a series of presentations from the heads of community-led projects from around the world. The key topic is 'Can we create a big society by design?'
Speakers at Dott Pecha Kucha include David Barrie, who set up The People’s Supermarket in London – a new social enterprise that is taking on the supermarkets to revolutionise the way people buy their food. It is constantly being designed and re-designed by its members, and volunteers run the supermarket.
Also speaking is Kathryn Woolf, the co-Founder and Director of SEA Communications; educational consultant Will Coleman; Zoe Stanton from Uscreates; and Andrea Sidmok, the Programme Director of Dott Cornwall. Other speakers will be added in the run up to the event.
