PechaKucha Night (also called PKN) is a global event series that is dedicated to PechaKucha-style presentations on various topics. Conceived in Tokyo in 2003 by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture as a way to bring the local design community together, there are now over 700 PechaKucha Nights around the globe.
Roughly translated to mean "the sound of conversation” in Japanese, a PechaKucha is a presentation where speakers are allotted 20 slides to share their thoughts and ideas on a selected topic. Slides are 20 seconds each, changing whether the presenter is ready or not, for a total presentation time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds. The specificity of a PechaKucha keeps presenters and audience members focused, and gives more people the opportunity to participate.
