originally created by astrid klein and mark dytham as an event for young creatives to meet, network, and show their work in public. drawing its name from the japanese term for the sound of ‘chit chat,’ the pechakucha night 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. placing a bigger emphasis on sharing pechakucha 20×20 presentations online, this collection has now grown to over 1000 since its inception in tokyo in february 2003. recorded at pechakucha nights around the world, this collection of presentations come from all the regions and countries that host PKNs – now in over 650 cities – with a large selection of  languages represented as well.


to watch all of these presentations, simply visit the watch section of the pechakucha website, where users can filter through the latest additions, featured picks, the most watched, and the most applauded – the ‘applaud’ button being a way for users of showing appreciation for a good presentation.
