Visual Storytelling That Celebrates Humanity

Open, spontaneous, fun, informal, silo-breaking – words used to describe how PechaKucha brings people together around the world to laugh, learn and connect.

What is PechaKucha?

PechaKucha’s 20×20 presentation format features 20 images, 20 seconds each. In other words, every presenter has 400 seconds to tell their story, with visuals guiding the way.

Powerful Images

Seconds Each

Seconds to tell a story

It is the world’s fastest-growing storytelling platform.
PechaKucha Nights have been held in over 1,200 cities around the world.

PechaKucha means “chit chat” in Japanese. This creative outlet began as nighttime get-togethers in Tokyo in 2003 by architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo’s Klein Dytham architecture. Since then, three million people have attended PechaKucha events worldwide.

PechaKucha is what “Show and Tell” always dreamed of becoming.

20 slides. 20 seconds of commentary per slide. That’s it. Simple. Engaging. Spurring authentic connections.

What happens in a PechaKucha Night?

People share hilarious, heartwarming, tear-jerking PechaKucha presentations at brick & mortar venues around the world. And when we say people — we really mean anyone with something to say can present. No professional public speakers here. Audiences at PK Nights range from 50 to 5,000.

Creative. Connective. Authentic. Memorable. FUN.
