Ottumwa Courier

---- — FAIRFIELD — ICON Gallery will host PechaKucha Night (PKN) from 7:30-10 p.m. Oct.18. PKN is a lively evening of short slide presentations – 20 slides per presenter at 20 seconds per slide – each consisting of six minutes and 40 seconds.

This PechaKucha Night, Fairfield Vol. 2, follows a wildly successful premier PKN held in August. The inaugural event was wall-to-wall, standing room only.

PechaKucha Night was launched in 2003 by architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham in Tokyo as an event for young designers to meet, network and showcase their interests. Since its inception, PKN has morphed into a massive celebration with events occurring in over 660 cities across the globe, inspiring creative communities worldwide.

The PechaKucha format keeps presentations concise and flowing at a brisk pace. PKN’s are community-based events that allow folks to share their creative work, interests and expertise. Presentations range from upbeat to compelling, quirky to breathtaking, timely, insightful and inspiring.

PKN Fairfield Vol. 2 will highlight locals recognized for their creative, knowledgeable and passionate approaches to their endeavors.

The dozen presentations from PKN Vol. 1 are available on the Global site www.pechakucha.org/cities/fairfield. Three presentations were selected as “Presentation of the Day,” featured on the homepage, www.pechakucha.org.
