Writer's Block Philippines supports Pecha Kucha Night Manila v3 for a night of all-out creativity

Writer’s Block Philippines is proud to support Pecha Kucha Night Manila v3, a fun and totally out-of-the-box forum and networking event for creatives, that will be held at the Shangri-la Cineplex 4 on Thursday, September 2, 2010.

This isn’t your ordinary talk or meet-and-greet, however. According to the Pecha Kucha Night Manila website, “The key to Pecha Kucha Night is its patented system… Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.”

“Pecha Kucha (which is Japanese for the sound of conversation) has tapped into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown, without having to rent a gallery or chat up a magazine editor. This is a demand that seems to be global – as Pecha Kucha Night, without any pushing, has spread virally to over 100 cities across the world.”

The first batch of Pecha Kucha Night Manila v3 speakers includes luminaries in the Philippine creative scene, such as fashion photographer Mark Nicdao, photographer and The Late Isobel vocalist Wawi Navarozza, design studio Electrolychee, game designers By Implication, Tuldok Animation Studios, and t-shirt and apparel graphic artist AJ Dimarucot.
