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 the most meaningful PechaKucha presentations are the ones that uncover the unexpected — unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Many use PechaKucha Night to present their latest creative projects, work, or passions. “PechaKucha” is Japanese for ‘chit-chat’ or the sound of conversation. Come chat with us!
