The art of concise presentations.

PechaKucha Night, now in over 900 cities, was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for people to meet, network, and show their work in public.

PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.

PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps — just about anything, really — in the PechaKucha 20×20 format.

PechaKucha Nights are mostly held in fun spaces with a bar, similar to the home of PechaKucha Night, SuperDeluxe, which is a space for “thinking and drinking.” To date, PechaKucha Nights have been held in bars, restaurants, clubs, beer gardens, homes, studios, universities, beaches, swimming pools, even a quarry!

Anyone can present — this is the beauty of PechaKucha Nights. Astrid’s daughter presented when she was 5 (about her artwork) and Mark’s mother presented when she was 69 (about her elaborate wedding cake creations).

Good PechaKucha presentations are the ones that uncover the unexpected — unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different, and they turn each PechaKucha Night into “a box of chocolates.”
