PECHAKUCHA • LEARN SOMETHING NEW AND GET INSPIRED
PechaKucha Night was originally created in Tokyo in 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a world wide phenomenon with events happening in more than 800 cities around the world. The name PechaKucha comes from the Japanese word for chitchat.
The Amsterdam PechaKucha is organized by Jeroen Beekmans and Joop de Boer of Pop-Up City and Golfstromen. Speakers can propose presenting their ideas at PechaKucha or the organizers might ask inspiring individuals to share their stories. Speakers have 20 slides of 20 seconds each to talk about their idea keeping the event quick and fresh.
Past PechaKucha events have been held in cool spots like Roest, Trouw, Radion and Spaces and included speakers from organizations like Strawberry Earth, Stadsboeren, De Culinaire Werkplaats, Natwerk, Hard//hoofd, We Are Public, Bits of Freedom, Times Square Art Square, 22tracks and many more.
