20x20 or PechaKucha is a storytelling format that uses 20 slides for 20 seconds each. The speaker has 6 minutes and 20 seconds to communicate the story of their innovation.
Innovators, conceptual thinkers, creative problem solvers, industry-changers. HousingX called for any and all applicants to submit affordable housing industry innovations or initiatives to be presented in the 20x20 PechaKucha format.
The format requires the presenter to pare down their idea to an essential element that can be communicated in six minutes, often in the form of a story. Attendees heard 10 fresh ideas in this fast-paced session. This gave practitioners from around the state the opportunity to tell their own story of innovation and change.
