PechaKucha Night at Gilt (Artisan Lounge), Cebu Mar 4, 2014

PechaKucha Night at Gilt (Artisan Lounge), Cebu

Location: Gilt (Artisan Lounge), Crossroads Arcade, Cebu City, Cebu (province), Philippines

What is PechaKucha?
PechaKucha has its origin in Tokyo back in 2003 where young designers can network and showcase their creatives. Today, PechaKucha has spread to 700 cities worldwide, Cebu being the latest. The presentor narrates while a set of 20 slides, displayed in 20 second intervals, are played in the backdrop. In short, the presentor has 6.5 minutes to make a presentation. This works because he has to condense his body of work into a select choice of 20 slides, and he cannot hog the mic. This also gives the audience just enough time to be engaged without being saturated.

Cebu PechaKucha
Cebu launched its first ever PechaKucha at the Gilt in Crossroads, Banilad. There were 4 presentors, each with a pack of slides and a story to tell. One talked about doing a photo album project to the victims of Typhoon Yolanda. Another talked about the least beaten path in adventure travels within the Philippines. Ravi talked about the Africa we didn't know. Lastly, Willerie talked about capturing humanity in the pictures she takes. The presentations were not too long but long enough to get the message across. It works!

Denizens
The Cebu event was attended mostly by young Indie-types - artists, intellectuals, yogis, bohemians and hoopers (paging Berns!). You can say the attendees are on the same page. It was emceed by the bar owner, Jay Chiongbian, who was adept at the mic himself.

Gild
The venue could not have been held at a more appropriate place. Gilt is an eclectic throw-back bar/resto displaying decent nudes from the roaring 20s and memorabilia from a Norman Rockwell era. The vibe is hipster-cool. You can check it out at Crossroads, Banilad.

Thoughts
This launch is without a doubt a success. Already, plans for a monthly gathering are being setup. Great job, Paola Galan!
