Giovedì 17 marzo alle 18.30 si svolgerà nella sede di Digital Magics Palermo, in seno alla tappa palermitana di SmArt City Italia, un appuntamento informale per discutere di Smart City da punti di vista differenti. Radici e avanguardia per una Palermo da reinventare nella sua vocazione e nel suo desiderio di sviluppo, elementi che saranno il fil rouge delle storie raccontate dagli speaker che, attraverso una presentazione creativa e non-convenzionale, prenderanno parte all’evento.
L’evento sarà un Happy Hour con la struttura di un Pecha Kucha: si tratta di una presentazione di 6 minuti e 40 secondi veloce e incisiva che riduce e condensa all’essenziale la “storia” che si vuole raccontare. Regole ben precise per limitare la creatività: decidere di mostrare solo 20 immagini e per ognuna di esse parlare 20 secondi.
Non solo il tempo e il numero di foto limitate metteranno in moto la creatività ma – dato che le slide cambiano automaticamente ogni venti secondi – si è costretti a preparare molto bene il tutto o si finirà facilmente fuori sincrono.
Il primo Pecha Kucha si è svolto a Tokyo nel 2003, da quel momento è diventato un format per eventi informali durante i quali le persone si riuniscono e condividono le loro idee e i propri progetti attraverso 20 slide.
L’evento di giovedì 17 marzo è organizzato da PUSH in collaborazione con Energia Media.
Sponsor tecnici: Digital Magics Palermo e Factory Accademia, Tenute Orestiadi.
Ecco gli speaker:
Alvise De Sanctis – Expo in città
Angelica Agnello – Orto Capovolto
Enzo Fiammetta – Fondazione Orestiadi
Morena Fanny Raimondo – MORE
Gandolfo Gabriele David – Dimora OZ
Carmela Dacchille – Edizioni Precarie
Fabio Rizzo – Indigo

This is the first step of an experimentation that aims to involve the over 60.000 students of the University of Palermo, and subsequently the entire city population. The tester sample will be gradually extended, as well as the app functions, which will be improved and enhanced based on suggestions by the testers, who will review the app periodically.
