About Pecha Kucha
Pecha Kucha was conceived in Tokyo in February 2003 by architects Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein as an event where young designers could meet, network and show their work in public. Over time, it has evolved into a massive celebration of creativity, with events regularly being held in 300 cities including Miami. Last year, more than 6,000 presentations were hosted at over 600 Pecha Kucha events. Drawing its name from the Japanese phrase for the sound of conversation (“chit chat”), the Pecha Kucha format is simpleâ€”20 images x 20 secondsâ€”and designed to keep presentations concise and moving at a rapid pace.
