More about Pecha Kucha:

Pecha Kucha (pronounced peh-chak-cha) was started in Tokyo, Japan in 2003 by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham Architecture. Presenters give a slideshow of 20 images, each shown for only 20 seconds — giving a total presentation time of 6 minutes 40 seconds. 

The brief the presenters are given is no brief! They can talk about any subject of choice, as long as they keep to the time and format. With presenters made up mostly from the creative and design fields, Pecha Kucha Nights are great for networking, only more fun.

Pecha Kucha Nights have grown into a phenomenon in Tokyo where it has mushroomed in over 230 cities all over the world. In Kuala Lumpur, Pecha Kucha Nights are hosted by the British Council and supported by the Multimedia Development Corporation of Malaysia (MDeC). This celebratory volume is housed by Delucca, The Italian Restaurant.
