VOL 15

May 24, 2016
@ The Belmont Filmhouse

Join some of Aberdeen’s most inspired minds for an evening of short talks in the PechaKucha format.

This special PechaKucha event is held jointly with the Aberdeen Society of Architects and is supported as part of the Year of Innovation Architecture and Design 2016. 

PechaKucha means ‘chitchat’ in Japanese and the format was created by two architects who were fed up with lengthy presentations. PechaKucha runs in over 650 cities around the world. PechaKucha nights bring together art, design, research and fresh ideas.

PechaKucha in Aberdeen is co-ordinated by the Public Engagement with Research Unit at the University of Aberdeen. Interested in talking at a PechaKucha night? Please get in touch!
