PechaKucha Night is an international phenomenon, now taking place in over 800 cities around the world. This unique presentation style was devised in Japan in 2003 among enterprising young designers who wanted to meet and network while learning about each others work with the 20 slides, 20 seconds for each image presentation format. It’s concise, appropriately brief, and loads of fun.
