Pecha Kucha Night Singapore: Rojak.Digital Event

Description

Join us the special full-day PechaKucha Night event on the December 2nd at National Gallery. The night will include talks by speakers from the arts, heritage and tech industries around culture and technology, with a focus on the Internet of Things (IoT).

The theme for the night is “Rojak.Digital”, evoking the mix of unlikely ingredients that come together to produce rich flavours in the local dish. This theme represents the creative mix of speakers –creators, thinkers and cultural curators – who help redefine what our realities will be in the near and distant future. They will come together to explore IoT as a trend that represents a world on the cusp of change, with implications for the way we work and for everything from daily life to society and culture. Come hear stories from 12 visionaries across the world and get hands-on experience in the daytime workshops.

During the day, there will be a series of tech workshops for adults and children where our speakers, Rob Lang and Andrew "bunnie" Huang host workshops for adults and families before the main PechaKucha event. Three out of four workshops are for the families to experience a glimpse of future tech with their children. Don't miss those if you are seeking for cool educational experiences for your kids!

Both the talks and the workshops will be free of charge, but registration is required for both the night. To register workshops, scroll down to find links at the timetable.
