PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for 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 all people worldwide. Presentations are now as diverse as the cities in which host PechaKucha Night events. All are welcome to attend, and all are welcome to present.

Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a nice pace.
