On Saturday, February 20th, the 277 cities that host PechaKucha events worldwide will converge to present one continuous edition of PechaKucha Night. Kicking off at SuperDeluxe in Tokyo, where PechaKucha Night was first conceived, the presentation wave will travel eastward, with cities presenting one after the other. Crossing all times zones and cultures, the event will be streamed live online. All proceeds will go to Architecture for Humanity for rebuilding Haiti.
Please save the date for Calgary’s contibution to this special event. Speakers and other event details will be announced shortly.
Devised and shared by Klein Dytham Architecture in 2003 as a place for designers, developers and architects to meet, network and show their work in public, PechaKucha Nights are now taking place in 277 cities around the world. The format is simple: speakers present 20 slides each, for 20 seconds per slide. Calgary Arts Development has an agreement to host PechaKucha Nights in Calgary and will be hosting several PechaKucha Nights over the course of the year.
