Drawing it’s name from the Japanese sound of the term for ‘chit-chat’, PechaKucha is a new format of presentation taking the design world by storm. Or perhaps, not so new. Founded in 2003 at Super Deluxe, a basement bar in Tokyo, it is now celebrated in 382 cities worldwide and growing.

Anyone is welcome to participate — presenting designs, ideas, interests and dreams — and anyone is welcome to watch. It’s a brilliant, fresh, fast-paced and diverse experience to go to, and chances are, it’s already happening in your city.
