NEXT EVENT VOL 19

Join some of Aberdeen’s most inspired minds for an evening of short talks in the PechaKucha format.

PechaKucha means ‘chitchat’ in Japanese and the format was created by two architects who were fed up with lengthy presentations. PechaKucha runs in over 650 cities around the world. PechaKucha nights bring together art, design, research and fresh ideas.

PechaKucha #19 in Aberdeen falls during the University's May festival and will feature a range of speakers from different backgrounds. Stay tuned to this page for more info! 

PechaKucha in Aberdeen is co-ordinated by the Public Engagement with Research Unit at the University of Aberdeen. Interested in talking at a PechaKucha night? Please get in touch!
