PechaKucha C-U announces Volume 24; seeking volunteers and presenters

If you’re not familiar with PechaKucha, imagine a TED talk, but a little quicker and not necessarily technology-based. PechaKucha strives to bring diverse speakers from a ton of different backgrounds in Champaign-Urbana, together for one night to chat about a given subject, generally their trade or hobby.

For their 24th iteration, PKNCU will hit Krannert Center on June 10th, and they’re looking for volunteers or interesting humans to present topics.

For more information, check out PechaKucha C-U’s announcement below:

What is PechaKucha Night?

First devised by a pair of Tokyo architects in 2003, PechaKucha Nights have become international phenomena that use a simple concept to create big community exchanges. Presenters have 20 images and 20 seconds per image to share their ideas, works, and passions for a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds flat.  PechaKucha Nights are held in over 900 cities worldwide.
