PechaKucha Nights at Tokyo Design Week are where audiences can catch presentations by some of the brightest and most interesting design talent in Japan (with a few welcome guests from abroad). Each year's event fills up the TDW venue where it is held, with upwards of 700 to 1000 in attendance.
Our 2012 global event had the goal of celebrating every PechaKucha Night city, worldwide. It was a weeklong celebration (February 20-26) that brought all PechaKucha organizers, presenters, and attendees together, with a focus on highlighting all of the amazing cities that make up the global PechaKucha community.
PechaKucha teamed up with 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT as part of the "Design Ah!" exhibition to produce two special events on March 23rd. One for kids, where they made and presented their 20x20s in an open workshop. The other for 'grown-ups' was part of Roppongi Art Night, and featured an inspiring lineup of design talent.

ON NOV 25, 2016
"I had to do it for myself to grow within..."
In The Art of Cycling at PechaKucha Night Markham Vol. 13, Veronica Abrenica shares her journey of cycling across the United States and how it has influenced her life for the better, one mile at a time.
Veronica is a cycling enthusiast who believes in the power of cycling to bring clarity, balance and empowerment into one's life. She has cycled across the US with "Bike and Build" and all around Ireland with "Cycle Against Suicide". Her talk is a call to action to pursue something meaningful and challenging, to break routine and wake up your senses.
Improvisation: If you could call Europe, what would you say?
BY PECHAKUCHA NIGHT MAASTRICHT
@ VOL 32
ON FEB 06, 2017
In this improvisation on random slides, four volunteers from the audience got five slides each and skillfully improvised on the question: "If you could call Europe, what would you say?"
As none of them had seen the slides in advance, the sense of challenge and the high level of surprise greatly entertained the audience.
A big thank you to Cristian Tala Sánchez, Osiris Hoepel, Cathy Kwanten and Fjære van der Stok for their participation!
Your call is important - please hold the line
Rod Jones spoke to us about Call Centres not just how they generally annoy us but to how they work and the pressures that each of the staff are under. He further informed us how South Africa is providing employment for our youth through call centres and training to these individuals
All in a fun and enjoyable presentation manner with humour.
Answering Nature's Call
Amy Marr is the Visitor Programmes Coordinator at Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu where she spend her days, evenings and occasionally her weekends organising and coordinating events and programmes for diverse audiences that support the Gallery’s collection and exhibitions. Sometimes her job involves organising and running a Len Lye themed party with 3000 attendees, DJs, bands and silent disco, and other times it sees her cleaning pee off the children’s playground.
Amy conceptualised and runs, 'The Mix' a series of events that opens the gallery at night and brings a new mix to the gallery with speakers, performances, food and drink. These events give visitors a chance to experience the gallery's collections after dark.
When she's not at the Art Gallery, you can find her in the bush in a colour coordinated tramping outfit. 'Answering nature's call' is not what you might expect. Amy has grown up to embrace the squat wee and this talk takes us on a hunt for places to relieve herself while in the hills tramping and exploring.

Celebrating Melville and a Creative Jobs Platform in Brazil
Presentations Megan Whilden is a government worker in the city of Pittsfield, and in this presentation (from PKN Pittsfield Vol. 1) she talks about the "Call Me Melville" summer cultural program. In this presentation (in Portuguese, from PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 7), Tiago Yonamine talks about how he created Trampos, Brazil's biggest and most famous creative jobs platform. From its Twitter account to the new powerful website, Tiago explains how young talent needs a place to find work and how brands can take notice of their potential. Posters Today's new posters on the Tumblr blog come from Durban -- for the city's Vol. 7, which is happening on August 22 -- and Springfield, MO, for tonight's Vol. 7. Notice Although the worldwide PechaKucha network never rests, the HQ does in order to replenish its energy, and hopefully catch a few rays. We will therefore be on "sleep" mode for the next two weeks, and won't be doing our regular daily posts during this time. We will still have two new presentations going up on the site each and every day, which we'll share on the blog as well, but for details on the PKNs happening during this 2-week period, please have a look at our calendar page. Calendar Tonight, Friday (August 3), you can catch the following three events: PKN Panjim Vol. 3, PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 7, and PKN Hakata Vol. 7. Then on Sunday, we have PKN Dunsborough Vol. 5 and PKN Beijing Vol. 21, and Monday has PKN Pittsboro Vol. 11.
This edition of Presentation of the Day comes to you from the annals of PechaKucha yore (well, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 53) and features interpreter-by-trade Sarah Stark speaking of her life growing up foreign in Japan. Additionally, she goes into detail on how people-watching inspired her to take up photography.
