Ok, first up what is a PechaKucha night? Originated in Japan, a fast and fabulous night of individual presentations, but there is a rule... NOBODY can speak for more than 6 mins, which means that you really can’t afford to be BORING. Each speaker will show 20 images and talk about each image for 20 seconds. 

​Today the event has evolved to cover a range of topical societal issues, from diverse perspectives. 

What kind of things do people talk about? Literally anything that people think worth sharing including a personal story, an idea, a project, a passion, interesting snaps and experiences from your last adventure, these are just a few examples.

PechaKucha presentations uncover the unexpected -- unexpected talent, unexpected ideas. Some PechaKuchas tell great stories about a project or a trip. Some are incredibly personal, some are incredibly funny, but all are very different, and they turn each PechaKucha event into “a box of chocolates”.

What can I expect from PechaKucha x Hassell? After the success of the PechaKucha X Hassell collaboration in March 2017 the teams are back together to bring you another wonderful evening inspiring and unique speakers.

Our friends from CORONA are back on board too to make sure no one in the studio will be without a cold beer in their hands throughout the night!

So why would you not come down to the HASSELL studio in Shoreditch to listen to 7 speakers talk about all kinds of wonderful things.
