About PechaKucha Night

PechaKucha Night was devised in February 2003 by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo's Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa) and quickly spread around the world. As of January 2013, PechaKucha Nights were being held in more than 600 cities worldwide.PechaKucha (Japanese for chit-chat) uses a unique 20x20 presentation and discussion format. Speakers use only 20 images and have only 20 seconds per image - six minutes 40 seconds in total, keeping things lively

Speakers come from diverse backgrounds, including businesspeople, entrepreneurs, photographers, designers, writers, idea innovators, comedians, musicians and scientists presenting a cross section of industry and introducing audiences to new ideas and insights that might otherwise remain hidden.

The presentation will be followed by open discussion, with the creative industries business group committee, promoting dialogue and participation.
