About PechaKuchaDrawing 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: each presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds each - a 6 minute and 40 second dose of ideas before the next presenter is up. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
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 grown into a global event held in 1300 cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide.
PechaKucha Night is for content and not profit. Visit PechaKucha HQ to learn more about this global network.
About PechaKucha VancouverIn Vancouver, PechaKucha Night is a fun and informal hour and a half of culture, ideas, creativity, passion and opinions.

A shout out to our amazing PechaKucha hosts, Marianne Amodio, MA+HG Architects and Caroline Boquist, Walrus. We are grateful to have this dynamic duo introducing our speakers.
About Open Format Arts & CultureOpen Format creates social, community-minded events that offer presenters a platform and audiences inspiration.
We believe in the magic and the wisdom of real world stories, people and experiences. People can often feel disconnected from community life in the city and seek more meaningful interactions. Our intention is to bring people together, and improve our community’s wellbeing.
