PechaKucha Night

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 now takes place in hundreds of cities around the world. 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 (around seven minutes) per presenter. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. The fifth PechaKucha Night Dublin took place on 1st April 2010.

Since starting in June 2005, the CandyCollective now consists of a core group of people all over the world who are intent on creating noise in their local area. CANDY magazine was launched to showcase Irish creativity alongside international equivalents to a worldwide audience. Since then many downloadable pdf format issues have been released and focus has changed somewhat to showcasing and promoting creatives and their work wherever they may be.

The CandyCollective grew organically, drawing on the contacts, expertise and skills of new members. Events include: SweetTalk, 50×50, Shock’d, Electric Picnic and event promotion and management.

SweetTalk is the name of CandyCollective’s self-initiated series of creative-to-creative live events. It brings together local creative talent with international luminaries in a relaxed, social environment.
