WHAT, EXACTLY, IS PECHA KUCHA NIGHT?
First devised by a pair of Tokyo architects in 2003, PechaKucha Nights have become international phenomena that use a simple concept to create big community exchanges. Presenters have 20 images and 20 seconds per image to share their ideas, works, and passions for a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds flat. PechaKucha Nights are held in over 900 cities worldwide.
