We've had people of all ages do presentations in the PechaKucha 20x20 format, and that includes kids. Here is a collection of presentations we've shared on the site that were done by children in cities all over the world.
PechaKucha teamed up with 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT as part of the "Design Ah!" exhibition to produce two special events on March 23rd. One for kids, where they made and presented their 20x20s in an open workshop. The other for 'grown-ups' was part of Roppongi Art Night, and featured an inspiring lineup of design talent.

A PechaKucha Event for Kids
Well this sounds like fun: the PechaKucha Brussels organizer, Alok Nandi, is organizing a special PechaKucha event (PKN Vol. 23) that will feature a full lineup of kids! There will be 10 presenters, and the event is set for May 6 at Claridge from 16:20 -- the regular PechaKucha Night Vol. 24 will take place that evening at the same venue.
Reexamining an Abandoned Amusement Park, Teaching Kids How to Deal with Disabilities, and Guerilla Projecting in Providence
Presentations A presentation (from PKN Miami Vol. 15) by Anthony Spinello and Augustina Woodgate about a project in Berlin called Kulturpark, taking place in an abandoned amusement park. Here's more on the project from the official website:In the Treptower Park forest in East Berlin, along the Spreeriver, there is an abandoned amusement park. The park, originally called Kulturpark Planterwald, was built in 1969 by the GDR and was a rare site for Soviet amusement and attraction. After the fall of the wall, the park became the family-owned Spreepark and suffered challenges of access, attendance, and economy. In 2001, the park closed from capital collapse. Ever since, visitors have regularly traversed the fence to explore this jungle of broken thrill machines. In June 2012, Kulturpark will explore the poetics and potential of these recent ruins, building upon the unique energy of Berlin’s urban, social, cultural, and political landscapes.Marina Potanina is the president of a charity foundation called To Kids About Kids. In her presentation (in Russian, from PKN Moscow Vol. 12) she talks about the project, and the creation of an animated series about school life for a group of kids, with one of the main characters being a girl in a wheelchair. In Russia, there are no books, TV, or other examples of adequate communication with people with disabilities. Marina believes that if we start by talking to kids about these issues, that our society will be changed. Posters We end the week with a Tumblr blog update that includes quite a few older posters: PKN Beirut Vol. 11 (pictured above), PKN Sevilla Vol. 9 and 11, PKN Jakarta Vol. 10, PKN New Orleans Vol. 4, PKN Chicago Vol. 18, PKN Louisville Vol. 1, PKN Dublin Vol. 1, PKN Christchurch Vol. 3, PKN The Hague Vol. 5, PKN Victoria Vol. 3-6, PKN Huddersfield Vol. 1, and PKN Los Angeles Vol. 28. Photos We spotted this photo (by Twitter user @parulia, who was attending her first PKN) taken at this past Wednesday's PKN Providence Vol. 41 -- we sure love the guerilla nature of the venue and projection wall. Calendar There's just one event tonight (August 31), with Kumamoto hosting its Vol. 4. Then, you can look to Saturday for the following two events: PKN Hyderabad Vol. 10 and PKN Kathmandu Vol. 6.
Landscapes in Australia (and Beyond), the Mississippi Goddam Play, and Teaching Kids Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship
Presentations Christian Fletcher is a landscape photographer who photographs not only the beautiful South West of Australia but is now expanding his portfolio to include the rest of Australia and locations around the world. His presentation (from PKN Dunsborough Vol. 5) covers a new photography collaboration, exhibition, and workshop that is coming up in the near future. How did Jonathan Norton get out of writing a 20-page assignment? He promised a 100-page play instead, based on the Nina Simone song "Mississippi Goddam." Here's the story (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10). As we find out in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 9), Kids-Coins is an educational project -- held inside and outside school -- that teaches children and teenagers the basics of financial literacy and entrepreneurship. Sergey Bidenko and Irina Zolotarevych -- co-authors of the "Kids-Coins" projects -- are experienced business coaches who have implemented 37 training and educational programs for adults and youth. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is for Miami's upcoming very special Vol. 20 -- we always love seeing a city reach that number -- which doubles as a pre-Art Basel evening. It happens on December 1, and you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the event page. Photos Mikkeli recently held its very first PKN (and two weeks later, its Vol. 2), and here's the photo gallery [Flickr] to prove it -- you'll also find the full list of presenters with links on the event page. Calendar There are no PKNs tonight, but tomorrow night (November 20) you can look forward to the following two events: PKN Calgary Vol. 14 and PKN Coquitlam Vol. 8.

Cricket for Dummies
Do you know the difference between a Batsman and a Wicketkeeper? Do you long to make the pilgrimage to England's Lords pitch? Can you shoot a square drive with a flat-fronted willow-wood blade? If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, this presentation isn't for you. (But why not watch it anyway?) Here we have a cool little dude named Haseef; in this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PechaKucha Night Derby Vol. 5) Haseef educates us troglodytes on the wonders of his favorite sport: Cricket. To hear from more super-cool little dudes and dudettes, check out our KIDS Channel!
Exhibition "Design Ah!"
As part of Roppongi Art Night 2013, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT teamed up with the global PechaKucha organization for two very special sessions of 20x20 presentations -- part of the exhibition "Design Ah!" -- starting with a kids workshop during the day that was followed by a presentation session, and then a regular PechaKucha event for adults in the evening. The kids workshop took place before the session, with a group of children who had applied to take part. They all had a couple of hours to take photos of things they found interesting in the area, and then prepare a PechaKucha 20x20 presentation. The evening session featured a fun mix of design talent, and kicked off with a presentation by Roppongi Art Night’s artistic director Katsuhiko Hibino. Both session were hosted by PechaKucha founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, along with renowned graphic designer and director of the "Design Ah!" exhibition Taku Satoh.
