About the Series
What’s that you say? pe-chak-cha …. Well, PechaKucha (pronounced roughly: pe-chak-cha) is the Japanese word for chit-chat. But think of it as a way to share powerful ideas in a fast-paced, high-energy manner: 20 slides presented for 20 seconds each. That’s 6 minutes and 40 seconds to get your point across. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide.
