PechaKucha Night is a non-profit live networking event for sharing projects, stories and inspiration. Now in 875+ cities, all presentations follow the same signature format of 20 images x 20 seconds. From emerging talent to established professionals, anyone can take the floor. The event series began in Tokyo 2003, the brainchild of Klein Dytham architecture. PechaKucha (pe-chak-cha) is Japanese for “chit chat.”

deTour is “a ten-day fest celebrating innovation” which runs from November 27 to December 6 at PMQ. Named “one of the most exciting events on Hong Kong’s cultural calendar” by CNN, deTour is an annual event which aims to build a platform for international and interdisciplinary cultural exchanges, through a selection of local and international designs.

PechaKucha (pe-chak-cha) is Japanese for “chit chat.”
PechaKucha Night was devised by Klein Dytham architecture in Tokyo, 2003, as an event for young designers to present their work. Now in 750+ cities worldwide, the event has one simple rule: stick to the signature format of 20 images x 20 seconds. From emerging talent to established professionals, anyone can take the floor.

PechaKucha (發音:pe-chak-cha) 在日文中有 “閒談” 意思。

About Fotanian Open Studios
The Fotanian Open Studio event brings together a vibrant community of artists and art lovers who transformed industrial lofts into art studios. With the migration of industries to the Mainland, our local creative have started to take refuge in the spacious lofts of vacant industrial buildings since 2000.
Fotanian Open Studio Programme is a major annual event in the local art scene. Every year in January, artists throw open their doors in several consecutive weekends to welcome the general public. We get to go behind the scene and explore their creative works, which encompass a wide array of media, including paintings, sculptures, ceramics, mixed media, printmaking, installations, photographic and video works. Visitors can freely explore the artists’ workplace and hear about their artworks and art-making techniques. To foster sharing and exchange of ideas, visitors are also encouraged to engage in friendly dialogues with the artists in an approachable and open atmosphere.
With over 88 studios and over 250 artists joining hands this year, the Fotanian community is growing at an unprecedented scale.
