PechaKucha in Umeå
Svensk Form Västerbotten is developing the presentation format Pecha Kucha Night for the Capital of Culture year in Umeå. The campaign is also a joint project with Riga in Latvia.
The concept focuses on making short presentations in a limited format. The timeframe for the presentation is precisely 6 minutes and 40 seconds and consists of a slideshow where a new image is presented every 20 seconds. The restrictions are meant to build creativity and inventiveness.
Through the PechaKucha concept, Svensk Form Västerbotten hopes to create an entirely new type of European network around the democratic dialogue. Together with Riga, they also hope to take the format and the scenic interpretation even further.
