This event has been curated by local young people, through our work with Hot Chocolate Trust and V&A Young People Collective, from selecting the speakers (and speaking themselves) to marketing, filming, hosting and social media. Pecha Kucha Nights run in over 1,000 cities around the world, they’re a quick-fire way of hearing from people across the city and beyond, and tickets generally go fast… The last event sold out in record time, so be sure to secure your tickets here!
You can read our blog about co-designing the event, here.
At Pecha Kucha Night Dundee we have around 12 diverse individuals who speak about whatever they like, and it’s a speedy format – presenters have 20 images and 20 secs per image – so just under 7 mins, which means you hear a lot of interesting, thought-provoking and inspiring stuff with an audience 300+ people – it’s a great night out!
Our regular ‘spread the word’ feature on the night gives anyone the chance to grab the mic and shout out the events and opportunities they have coming up.
A huge thanks to Steven Peebles for the incredible PKN artwork, which was commissioned by the young people steering group. Check out more of his illustrations here.
To find out more about the format, you can watch over 260 Pecha Kucha Night Dundee talks over on our video wall.
