PechaKucha authorized city

Pecha Kucha is a simple presentation format created by architects that debuted in Tokyo in 2003. According to the founders, the reason behind inventing the format was simple: architects talks too much! Today, Pecha Kucha Nights are fun events hosted regularly in more than 1,000 cities around the world. Good Pecha Kucha presentations uncover unexpected talent and unexpected ideas. Some tell stories about a great project, some are incredibly personal, some are funny—but they are all very different. Come enjoy a night out with local creatives!
