Join us at PechaKucha Night Toronto, a celebration of creativity. Connect and listen to the creative minds in Toronto sharing their work, passion, inspirations, collections, and ideas through the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format.
PechaKucha Night was devised in 2003 in Tokyo by Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa), as an informal and fun gathering where creators, thinkers, innovators, and designers alike get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, interests, hobbies, collections and even holiday snapshots. The name “PechaKucha” derives from a Japanese term for the sound of conversation — chit-chat.
It has since turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in over 600 cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Most people use PechaKucha Night to present their latest creative projects or work. Some people share their passion, thoughts, creative processes, research projects, and their inspiration in the simple PechaKucha 20×20 format — 20 images x 20 seconds.
