PechaKucha (pe-chak-cha) is Japanese for “chit chat.”

PechaKucha Night was devised by Klein Dytham architecture in Tokyo, 2003, as a networking event for designers to show their work.
Now in 500+ cities, the presentation format is standard worldwide: 20 images x 20 seconds, (a snappy 6 min 40 sec).

PechaKucha is eclectic, fun and full of surprises. In addition to established professionals, the floor is also open to emerging talent, entrepreneurs and students.
PechaKucha Night is a platform for creatives to meet and share ideas with like-minded people in a laid-back setting.
