We're seeing a rebirth of the lecture. TED talks go viral on YouTube regularly. Now Pecha Kucha is popping up all over Iowa.
A tradition that began with Chautauqua has evolved to spawn Pecha Kucha. It's a format for presentation about your passion, boiled down to 20 photos, each discussed in 20 seconds. Topics range from architecture to yoga.
Host Charity Nebbe talks with Melissa Mohr, Director of Education at the Figge Art Museum, and Sarah Wilson, Co-Director of the Des Moines Pecha Kucha Event about how the format is taking root in Iowa. Charlotte Canning, author of The Most American Thing in America: Circuit Chautauqua as Performance, reminds us of the movement that started it all.
