PechaKucha Night Bangor is a presentation event for creative people to showcase their work, accomplishments and ideas to the community. PechaKucha Night started in 2003 in Japan and has spread to hundreds of cities around the world. The event concept is to keep presentations concise, interest up and ideas flowing. The 20x20 PechaKucha format allows each presenter to narrate a sideshow of 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds. Each event has presenters representing a wide array of creative disciplines.
