Pecha Kucha for Sheffield

Have your say

SHEFFIELD is set to take part in a worldwide phenomenon when the city hosts a Pecha Kucha night.

Pecha Kucha was devised in Tokyo in 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network and show their work in public.

It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide.

The name comes from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation and the format is based on 20 images in 20 seconds, which makes presentations concise and keeps things moving quickly.

Pecha Kucha takes place in Sheffield Cathedral tomorrow at 7.30pm.

A spokesman said: “Guest speakers present against the clock - 20 slides, 20 seconds each - making it entertaining, educational and inspiring for all.”
