Oh man. Pretty annoyed I didn’t get info about this one, now it’s too late for me to arrange to go. Have they lost their previous mailing list? Would have expected a note especially after the last one got cancelled… 🙁
Just attended Pecha Kucha 5 at ONE, and was really impressed by the expansion of the scope of invited speakers. (Avant-garde architecture, bric-a-brac artists, biotechnologist jewelry designers,general adventure-seekers.) The only down side, was the persistent problem of Hong Kongers’ hesitancy to ask questions. I find this to be the most satisfying and exciting part of events held in other countries.
Is there a solution to the stereotypically-reinforced demure nature of the typical Hong Kong audience?
I don’t know about the latest one, but the atmosphere at previous Pecha Kucha nights makes it sort of difficult to ask questions. First of all, the formula is designed for it to be very brief, so for example, you can’t interrupt the speaker during the time-constrained talk. Second, with a big crowd and lots of ambient noise, sometimes people have a hard time stepping forward. But you’re right, the diversity of the speakers is excellent. It’s a great addition to Hong Kong’s creative scene.
