Pecha Kucha Dubai
Pecha Kucha (pronounced peh-chak-cha) is Japanese for “chit chat” and is an international network of events spread over 537 cities across the world, from Amsterdam to Atlanta and San Francisco to Shanghai. This event has been a breakthrough for those who were in need for a forum where creativity could be easily and informally presented. The event takes place in Dubai three to four times a year and provides the freedom for people to network and exchange ideas on any creative subject in an informal and open minded space. Pecha Kucha Night was devised and shared by Klein Dytham architecture.
Last night the event took place at one of my favorite spots here in Dubai, the Archive in Safa Park, and I will be blogging about some of the interesting presenters including Noor and Buthaina regarding the Dinner Club by No. 57 , who've brought the underground invite only supperclub concept to Dubai & Aya Mousawi founder of The Moving Museum, a travelling programme of contemporary art exhibitions and events in different cities across the world. Evolving the traditional museum model, this new approach responds directly to the global nature of the contemporary art world today. The programme aims to present new art and new ideas though a selection of the most innovative artists whose works are shaping contemporary art and developing its future. Through its unique format, the Moving Museum hopes to share important information and establish a dialogue with a crucial and ever changing audience.
