PechaKucha Night is a hybrid between a party and a presentation. This format first appeared in 2003 among architects and designers in Tokyo. Now PechaKucha Nights are held in more than 700 cities around the globe. Moscow has had its own version since 2009.
PechaKucha parties feature professionals from every sphere – scientists, designers, cinematographers, doctors, and volunteers. The main criterion is that the speaker should share his or her own personal experience and inspire listeners with their story. Speakers can use 20 images, which they can show for 20 seconds each, totaling up to 6 minutes and 40 seconds of the audience’s attention. The same amount of time is allotted for questions from the audience.
A detailed program of Big Summer PechaKucha Moscow will be published June 24. To stay updated, follow the official group, PechaKucha Moscow.
