PechaKucha Night 
20 slides, 20 seconds

What is PechaKucha Night?

PechaKucha Night presentation format was created by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham Architecture in 2003.  It was planned as an event for (you guessed it) designers and creative types of all disciplines to meet, network, and showcase their work, and play, in public. PechaKucha Night occurs in hundreds of locations around the world. The SDAF is pleased to serve as the San Diego’s official host chapter of PechaKucha Night.

PechaKucha is derived from a Japanese term meaning the sound of conversation, or chit-chat. PechaKucha Nights are creative, social and informal.  The concept is simple: each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds, giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of floor time and expression before the next presenter is up. It all makes for succinct and stimulating presentations from across the board. Presentations begin at 20:20.

Who presents at PechaKucha Nights?

The PKN floor is open to anyone who has something to share and a desire to do so within the 20×20 format. The SDAF may (or may not) offer a theme for any given date to provide direction, and when we do even a whiff of the evening’s inspiration is acceptable – but not required. From sharing a work in progress, to historical works, to your passion for bread baking or bee raising or whatever else makes your soul sing, is totally ok.

PechaKucha Night, now in over 1,000 cities, was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network and show their work in public. Brought to San Diego by The San Diego Architectural Foundation in 2009,  PKN Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together to share their ideas, works, thoughts holiday snaps – just about anything, really – in the Pecha Kucha 20×20 format.

The concept is simple: each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds, giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of floor time and expression before the next presenter is up. It all makes for succinct, stimulating presentations across a range of diverse topics.

PKN SD Volume 32 is a joint event with the American Planning Association’s California Chapter Conference and will focus on topics adjacent to APA California’s mission of making great communities happen through good planning.
