PechaKucha Night #12 – Rediscovering BLR
Invitation to PechaKucha Night #12 in Bangalore.
Bangalore is huge, and with so many people, buildings, spaces and projects, so many places, works and ideas are too little, too old or too modest to be noticed.
What do you know about Bangalore that others do not know? Share your little secret; your project, blog, vision, photographs or anything else that will make others rediscover Bangalore at the Pecha Kucha event vol. 12.
From history to future, science-fiction to reality, big to small; each unexpected little thing about Bangalore is worth sharing and is there to give us deeper knowledge about our city.
Date: 27 June
Location: JAAGA, Double road, Bangalore
Time: 7pm – 9.30pm
Priya Sebastian – artist – sketching old Bangalore and Bangaloreans
Shoba Narayan – writer – the cow story
Andy Deemer – Bangalore ‘then and now’
Krupa Rajangam – neighbourhood diaries
Ingrid Duifhuizen – Mod Institute – a future for Bangalore

In February 2003, the first PechaKucha night (PKN) was held in Tokyo. Currently, over 500 cities around the world host PKNs.
PKNs are informal and fun gatherings where sharing creative projects, ideas and thoughts and creating interesting discussions is key. Artists, innovators and designers are given a platform to present their work, using the PechaKucha 20×20 format: each presentation should consist of 20 slides, each of 20 seconds.
Last January, PechaKucha #11 was held in JAAGA, Bangalore. Ten interesting and creative people showed us unexpected talent and ideas, and they set the bar high for PKN vol. 12.
PechaKucha Bangalore started in 2006, and started collaborating with MOD institute and JAAGA in 2010. All we want is to create discussion and share ideas that connect us to the city more and that let us discover how creative and innovative Bangaloreans are. We expect the unexpected and hope for the most creative talent.
We work independently and in collaboration with an extended network of individuals and organisations to visualise urban processes and challenges so as to inform participation and intervention.
