PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds, on auto-run totalling 6 minutes 40 seconds then sit down. The images forward automatically and you talk along to the images.
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
So far in 360 countries with 1,140 presentations to date, there is bound to be a city near you.
