PechaKucha Global Night Details
One night. Over 100 cities. Over 1000 presentations. Yes, PechaKucha Global Night is happening next month, on September 20. Check the PechaKucha Calendar to see if your city is joining in -- it is quite an impressive list!
You will also be able to get a flavour of the evening from our non-stop 24-hour Google Hangouts on Air where all the cities will check in, forming a "Mexican wave" of conversations as the Hangout slowly circles the globe. No matter where you are in the world, you'll be able to follow the global wave! Check back to the site on the day to find links to the global stream. We are working in collaboration with the great people at Google+, and the Hangout will be run from Google's HQ in Tokyo.
This year's theme is "Hidden Heroes," with many of the PechaKucha presentations on September 20 shining a light on those people who don't normally take the stage!
Over the next month we'll be sharing more details about the event through the PechaKucha Global Night Channel, and make sure to check your nearest city page to see if your local PechaKucha Night series is taking part! If not, give them a nudge!
This is our 4th year of uniting cities on a single night -- it is really great fun and a tremendous celebration of the PechaKucha network and spirit. We hope you can join us. For more information you can download the press release here, please help us get the word out in your city!
