Call for Speakers

We want to hear from you, PechaKucha style!

What is PechaKucha? Japanese for “chit-chat,” PechaKucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, allows designers to exchange ideas, share projects and start a dialogue on issues and inspiration in our industry.

This presentation style is a perfect fit for the conference theme this year: Cultivating Courage: Connect, Commit, Create. We’ll be focusing on projects such as Career Technical Education facilities, NextGen spaces, and charter schools that are committing to different models of educational delivery.

We’re encouraging you to bring your courage, and 20 slides, to be part of the conversation… PechaKucha style.

(Japanese: ぺちゃくちゃ, IPA: [petɕa kɯ̥tɕa])
