PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 by Klein Dytham architecture 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 over 900 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.
PechaKucha Buffalo was founded in 2006. PechaKucha Night is devised, shared, and supported by Klein Dytham architecture.
