PechaKucha  Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.

It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing 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.

What can OpenIDEAtors draw from this? Perhaps connecting the online challenge during the Challenge Phase in each city to generate more ideas/concepts? Or taking the Realization phase on and organize similar events to share tips and results for Realization!

I especially love that Pecha Kucha, being locally-directed, works on a sustainable business model. Some support guidance and tools are centrally provided but it allows for self-governance and has spread much further and faster than a top-down model would have. Fab inspiration, Chole – especially the nudge over how it could extend to Realisation & impact.
