20s * 20s in 37°23’N (aka PechaKucha in Seville)

Coincidences of life: while preparing yet another presentation for a conference, an email pops up from P. announcing an event with a strange name: PechaKucha.

PechaKucha is an event in which a presenter has 20 slides and 20 seconds per image (20s * 20s) to get his/her message across.  The origin of this format is the land of minimalism: Japan.  The idea started as an event in Tokyo in 2003, where young artists met to discuss, network and get inspired.  The underlying message: get to the point.

And so I get to know this morning, PechaKucha will be in Seville (37°23’N ) next Tueday 15th March.  The event will take place at Teatro Alameda at 9pm.  With presentations such as Tapas and Tweets, CityThinking and Networks&Ecology, I have no doubt it will be an inspiring evening.  Always happy to be surprised.

As it happens, today 8/03 is also woman’s day.  Most of the newspapers have compiled their own list of important women.  So why not compile my own list of inspiring women in pechakucha style…and so… here’s my selection in 20 images:

Let us know more women who have inspired you … and hope to see you next Tuesday. If you’re still not convinced watch the video below.  In the meantime, happy woman’s day …
