Pecha Kucha was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young 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 creativity worldwide.
Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of ‘chit chat’, Pecha Kucha rests on a simple presentation format of 20 slides x 20 seconds (6 min 40 sec). This format makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
