PechaKucha to unite ideas, stories, performances

Toledoans can see slide shows on steroids at the Glass City's second PechaKucha Night on June 12 at the Toledo-Lucas County Main Library. In PechaKucha, presenters have six minutes and 40 seconds to share concepts, stories, performances or artwork by sharing 20 slides for 20 seconds each.

"It can be very entertaining because you don't know what's going to happen in those 20 seconds, the audience doesn't know what's going to happen in those 20 seconds and mistakes do happen," said event organizer Kimberly Adams. PechaKucha began in Tokyo in 2003 as a way for young designers to share their ideas.
