Helsinki Design Week’s Culture Path content proposal for fifth graders (and why not others, too) is PechaKucha because we believe that school children have plenty to say. When the pupils organize their PechaKucha presentations with their teachers, the content is guaranteed to reach an audience from the festival production’s perspective, it can be performed remotely as is appropriate for this time, and it does not require a separate budget. Perhaps the teachers’ lounge, too, will become inspired to try PechaKucha. A lot can be communicated with twenty pictures. With this concept, we hope to human increase interaction in general. 

Toolkit for schools can be found here PechaKucha_Kulttuuripolku_ENG.

You can download the PechaKucha presentation PechaKucha 16-10_2020 Please make sure the timing is set to present every presentation slide for exactly 20 seconds each. 

More support on organizing a PechaKucha can be found here. Official instructions for schools are here.

Helsinki Design Week is the largest design festival in the Nordic countries organized annually in September. We present design at large and also produce content related to urban culture, fashion and architecture. PechaKucha Night is one of our main events, and we have organized these events in Helsinki for nearly twenty years. PechaKucha is a licensed format. In Helsinki, the events are organized by Helsinki Design Week organizer Luovi Productions. 

Helsinki Design Week 3–13 September 2020.
