PechaKucha (Japanese for “chit chat”) is an event format developed by Tokyo’s Klein Dytham Architecture to encourage creative professionals to share projects and ideas that they are passionate about.

Presentations follow a typical PowerPoint format, with the limitation that each presenter must have exactly 20 slides, and each slide advances automatically every 20 seconds (for a total time of 6:40).

Since it began in 2003, PechaKucha has expanded to more than 800 cities around the world. San Antonio’s first PechaKucha Night was held in February, 2011, and has been a quarterly event ever since.

In San Antonio, PechaKucha has proved especially popular, with attendance regularly exceeding hundreds of people. Its programming includes a broad range of creative and passionate professionals, including artists, academics, architects, journalists, authors, mental health professionals, chefs, community leaders, musicians, florists, potters, carpenters, and more.
