PechaKucha Night Manchester Vol. 20 - 'Future'

It’s a bit of a milestone for PechaKucha Night Manchester. 20 editions of our 20x20 event: 20x20x20, if you will. In order to mark the occasion we thought we’d have a gaze into the future and invite some of the best design talent living and working in the city to take on the PechaKucha 20x20 challenge: 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide, no stopping. 

Tickets are limited for this one so get in quick to avoid missing out.


On the Night

The doors open at 19:00 and the talks start at 19:30. We'll have a beer break just after 20:00. The talks should be finished by 21:15 where you'll have a chance to mingle afterwards.  


Thanks as ever to our paper sponsors, G . F Smith.

About PechaKucha Night Manchester

PechaKucha Night Manchester was relaunched in June 2016 by a new team after an eighteen month hiatus.

This is our sixth PechaKucha following a string of successful events. We are indebted to the support of Manchester’s creative scene coming along as speakers and audience members as well as our previous hosts, SpacePortX, Ziferblat, The Wonder Inn, Neo, the Rapha Clubhouse and PLANT. Most importantly, thank YOU for keeping us going!

PechaKucha Nights will continue take place every three months at venues across Manchester. Our mission is to feature a high calibre of creatives, designers, artists and community projects from the city and the North.

@ VOL 20 ON NOV 23, 2017

Do we ever stop and ask the question why do we do what we do?
Could it be that we are going about it the wrong way and there's a better way, a slower more thoughtful way to achieving a fulfilled life?
This is something that Rob Watson from Raw has been been exploring for the past few years. Listen as he shares his insights on how slowing down could get us where we want faster.
