PechaKucha Night Hong Kong is heading back to the grassroots spirit of the PechaKucha mothership in Tokyo, under the direction of HK-based design studio ChowPourianLab.
For those of you not yet familiar with PechaKucha (pe-chak-cha), it is a creative networking event which began in Tokyo in 2003. Now in 473 cities, the presentation format is standard worldwide: 20 images x 20 seconds with live narration. The time limit keeps it concise and fast-moving, a total of 6min 40sec per presentation.
Expect the unexpected! PechaKucha is a deck of wild cards – eclectic, fun and full of surprises. In addition to established professionals, the floor is also open to emerging talent, entrepreneurs and students in a relaxed atmosphere. The upcoming event is part of PechaKucha Global Cities Week, with a Hong Kong theme.
