A simple concept that’s spread across the world, Pecha Kucha is a night for the inquisitive and the creative. Taking to the stage to introduce their speciality subject, presenters have 20 seconds to discuss each of their 20 slides. From architects to AI scientists, the speakers are a mix of Tokyo’s greatest minds. Now edging towards 200 events in its founding city of Tokyo, it’s a smooth running event – if you want to take part, you can apply through their website.
The February event will celebrate the Inaugural International Pecha Kucha Day – since it’s held on 20/02/2020 it’s almost perfect.
Doors open at 7pm and the talks start from 8.20pm (20:20 of course). Tickets cost ¥1,000 on the door and can be bought on the night.
