Pecha Kucha is a presentation format for creative work originally devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Kein-Dytham Architecture (KDa) in Tokyo, Japan in 2003.

A Pecha Kucha night is an event format in which presenters show a slideshow of 20 images, each of which is shown for 20 seconds each, giving a total presentation time of 6 minutes 40 seconds. Each event usually has 8 - 14 presenters. Presenters (and much of the audience) are usually from the design, architecture, photography, art and creative fields.

The event format has been replicated in more than 600 cities, including London, San Francisco, Seattle, Rotterdam, Shanghai and Berlin. Events usually are limited to one each month per city and a minimum of four events per year.

Luka Hinse brought Pecha Kucha Nights to New Zealand and Auckland started in March 2007 as the first NZ city. Wellington, Christchurch, Nelson, Hamilton, Dunedin, Gisborne, Raglan, Whangarei and Queenstown are now running regular Pecha Kucha Nights. New Zealand has got a long culture in passionate storytelling.

Pecha Kucha is for CONTENT and not profit.
