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.
