VOL 19

@ CUC Wine Bar

Has spring sprung? Get the creative juices flowing with a selection of talks to inspire, excite, educate and delight! 

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 1120 cities around the world bringing together people from all creative backgrounds.

PechaKucha Cambridge has featured a wide range of speakers from many different disciplines including science, art, design, photography, fashion, architecture, mental health, sport and more.

If you'd like to know more about talking at a PechaKucha night, please get in touch!
