The blurb:

Chicago’s Volume 19 features 6 minutes and 40 seconds each of Go! afficianodos Bob Barber and Mark Rubenstein, Brit adhocist Jessica Charlesworth, the Factoter Tim Fawkes, CPS teacher Lucy Hilarides, mimicing musician Chris Neville, Circuit Court Judge hopeful RoxAnne Rochester, along with her Amber doll, we expect to see the real Amber Hawk Swanson, young architect and Rural Studio alum Evan Forrest, intelligent coffee dude Stephen Vicks, another Stephen, architect/urban planner Stephen Yas, and Dawn Hancock, who advocates good design for good reason.

Devised and shared by Klein Dytham Architecture. 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.
