If you are like us, PechaKucha (pronounced Pechá-koochá) is a relatively new word for you… or maybe it is still completely foreign! Allow us to shed some light… PechaKucha “draws its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.”
While very new to Springfield, LemonDrop was fortunate enough to have PechaKucha presentations about history and architecture for April’s First Friday just last week. Accompanying presentations from local architects and designers was work by the late architect, Richard Stahl, and ditties by local singer Barak Hill. Check out PechaKucha Springfield’s Facebook page here.
Twas a beautiful night for a First Friday on Commercial Street.
