What is it? PechaKucha Nights are local idea-sharing events in the 20 x 20 format: speakers present 20 slides for 20 seconds per slide. Slides advance automatically to keep things moving forward at a rapid pace. Anyone can present, but meaningful PechaKucha presentations are the ones that uncover the unexpected — unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. The key to a great presentation is to present something you feel passionate about. Many people use PechaKucha Night to present their latest creative projects or work.

“I wonder if the business world will ever experiment with the Pecha Kucha form for meetings. IMAGINE PEOPLE – concise, well-rehearsed presentations in under ten minutes, with plenty of time left for questions. Think it’s possible to end Death-By-PowerPoint in such a hip way?” – The Not-So-Ancient Art of Pecha Kucha
“The beauty of Pecha Kucha Night lies in the tension between the chaos of a full-blown party and the politeness of an art school crit, with the snappy pace holding it all together.” – Pecha Kucha Nights and Beer: a Sober Guide to Better Presentations
