Why have PechaKucha Nights gone viral globally?
With PechaKucha Nights now happening in over 1000 cities around the world, we have discovered that most cities — not just Tokyo — have virtually no public spaces where people can show and share their work in a relaxed way. If you have just graduated from college and finished your first project in the real world, where can you show it? It probably won’t get into a magazine, and you don’t have enough photos for a gallery show or a lecture, but PechaKucha is the perfect platform to show and share your work.
Who can present?
Anyone can present… this is the beauty of PechaKucha Nights. Astrid’s daughter presented when she was 5 (about her artwork) and Mark’s mother presented when she was 69 (about her elaborate wedding cake creations).
What can people present?
The key to a great presentation is to present something you love. Most people use PechaKucha Night to present their latest creative projects or work. Some people share their passion and show their prized collection of Nana Mouskouri records, while others share photos of their latest visit to a construction site or their recent holiday snaps. We always recommend people go and see a PechaKucha Night before they ask to present to get a good feel for what it’s all about.
As the PK City Organizer, we bring PechaKucha Nights to Collingwood. PK is a not for profit venture, we do this as a fun way to support our community and its people. We do charge an entrance fee to cover our costs, and we’re also required to contribute to the Global Fund to keep HQ running.
