Pecha Kucha -Green is the New Black

“Going green” means to pursue knowledge and practices that can lead to more environmentally friendly and ecologically responsible decisions and lifestyles, which can help protect the environment and sustain its natural resources for current and future generations. From growing your own food to recycling every bit counts. With every organization and individual claiming to be doing their part, is this just a fashion statement and a new trend or have we evolved enough to make a lasting impact.

The young artists of today will be the torchbearers of cultural and creative activities of Pakistan tomorrow. Their beliefs, practices and manifestos will shape the spirit of our time and future of our upcoming generation. It is important to create visibility and give voice to the creative individuals and promote their practices emotionally and intellectually.

The art and design community in Islamabad is isolated from the rest of the country and a lot of individuals rely on resources, support and connections in other cities to sustain their practices. We wanted to create means to bring these young creatives together to introduce, support and network with each other over an evening of Pecha Kucha style sharing of their ideologies and
practices.

The Pecha Kucha style of presentation has been devised in Tokyo and has been used across the international cities of the world by designers and creatives to showcase projects and share ideas. The Pecha Kucha style is a system of building a presentation of 20 slides for 20 secs each (20 X 20). Each presenter, hence, gets a total of 6.6 mins to share their idea and introduce their work. We will have a min of 6 and a max of 8 people presenting their Pecha Kuchas over an evening of 1-2 hours on a regular basis.
