We are working to gather and post some of the actual presentations from last Wednesday night…so that everyone can spend more time (more than 6 minutes and 40 seconds) with the great ideas and work. Sorry for the delay….thanks.

Thanks to all who participated in Charleston’s first Pecha Kucha Night…you helped make it a magical night.

Each of the nine presenters inspired the capacity crowd. The diverse performances included a visual tour of urban growth patterns via Google Earth, a photo essay on a unique mountain man, a discussion on inspired green architecture, proof of reggae’s influence on modern hip hop, the story of an insouciant young Charlestonian, a call for “brixel” public art, a moving spoken word performance, French-Asian fusion bouillabaisse prepared live, and a beautiful film created just for this evening. Our sincere thanks go out to each of the presenters…for giving so much of themselves.

Here are some highlights, courtesy of photographer Diana Deaver. We will post more images in the coming week.

See the full portfolio here.

Thanks also goes out to the capacity crowd who cheered on the presenters and created a “connection buzz” of sorts that can keep the energy flowing between PKN sessions.

And finally, this event would not have been possible…or free…without the support of a small army of volunteers and sponsors. They put on quite a show.

For those who couldn’t join us last night…know that we’ll be working to increase the capacity and communications reach to include you in the next round. And contact us if you’re willing to lend a hand…we can use the help.

Here are some highlights and recaps from others…with more to come.
