About Pecha Kucha
Pecha Kucha follows a 20×20 format which allows each of the evening’s presenters to showcase 20 images – each shown for exactly 20 seconds. This gives the presenter 6 minutes and 40 seconds of much deserved fame before switching over to the next participant. The quick and set pace of the format keeps interest flowing, momentum high and more opportunity for all presenters involved.
Originating in Japan, Pecha Kucha (pronounced peh-chak-cha) is Japanese for “chatter”. It is an international network of events spread over 373 cities across the world, from Amsterdam to Atlanta and San Francisco to Shanghai. This event has been a breakthrough for those who were in need for a forum where creativity could be easily and informally presented. The event takes place in Dubai three to four times a year and provides the freedom for people to network and exchange ideas on any creative subject in an informal and open minded space. Pecha Kucha Night was devised and shared by Klein Dytham architecture.
