Friday 27 January at 19:00, 12 talented researchers will enter the stage to showcase their exciting work focusing on the Arctic. One of them is ARCEx postdoc Ingrid Wiedmann who will give a presentation about her research project for exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds – 20 slides for 20 seconds each!
The PechaKucha concept originates from Japan, and the presentations are fun and fast paced. PechaKucha Nights are happening in over 900 cities around the world. The presentation format is simple: each presenter shows 20 images, and talks along to the images. The format is informal and fun. The core of the concept is to gather creative people and let them share their ideas, works, thoughts or groundbreaking research in the PechaKucha 20×20 format.
This PechaKucha Night will take place during the Arctic Frontiers 2017 conference week. The event is organized in collaboration between Arctic Frontiers, Pecha Kucha Tromsø, Riddu Riđđu Festivála and Driv.
The event is free of charge and everyone (18+) is welcome to attend. The Pecha Kucha Night will be followed by a concert.
