Past St Neots Event: VOL 5

Large wide cover


March 29, 2016
@ St Neots Rowing Club

Come and hear local creatives present their passions using just 20 images each shown for just 20 seconds. 

PechaKucha (or chitchat in Japanese) is a creative style of presenting that was created by two architects from Tokyo in 2003 who were fed up with lengthy presentations. Since then the concept has grown and PechaKucha talks now run in over 800 cities around the world bringing together people from all creative backgrounds.

PechaKucha St Neots started in 2015 and has featured a wide range of speakers from many different disciplines including science, art, design, photography, fashion, architecture, mental health and sport.

Events are held at St Neots Rowing Club and in the true spirit of collaboration mix art and sport. Interested in talking at a PechaKucha night? Please get in touch.
