What is this PechaKucha-style presentation?

PechaKucha’s 20×20 presentation format shows your 20 chosen images, each for 20 seconds. In other words, you’ve got 400 seconds to tell your story, with visuals guiding the way.

PechaKucha means “chit chat” in Japanese. This creative outlet began as nighttime get-togethers in Tokyo in 2003 by two renowned architects. Since then, three million people have attended PechaKucha events worldwide.

“Powered by PechaKucha” events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, so for this reason, this event will be particularly special for us.

5 speakers from different language-related backgrounds will share their story trying for the first time the Pechakucha format.

What’s it like to present PechaKucha style?

PechaKucha is your chance to share your passion and tell your story. There are no specific rules neither for the narrative nor for images you choose: you are free to express your creativity and involve the audience in different ways. For a bit of inspiration and guidelines, have a look at this PechaKucha presentation.

 The key to a great presentation is to present something you love.”
