What is PechaKucha? 

PechaKucha was devised in Toyko as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. What started out as a small presentation forum, has now turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide.  

Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit-chat", it is usually pronounced in three syllables like "pe-chak-cha". It rests on a presentation format in which content can be easily, efficiently and informally shown, based on the idea of: 20 images x 20 seconds. Under this format, a presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds apiece, for a total time of 6 minutes, 40 seconds, which makes all the presentations concise and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
