What is PechaKucha Night?

PechaKucha (pronounced in three syllables like “peh-chak-cha”) is a Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat.” PechaKucha Night (PKN), devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture, began in Tokyo in 2003 as an event for young designers to share their work, but has since grown into a global event held in over 600 cities around the world. As PechaKucha spreads geographically, it also expanded in focus and now gathers local creatives from across many fields to share their passions in a unique, concise format: each presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds each - a 6 minute and 40 second dose of ideas before the next presenter is up.

PechaKucha Buffalo was founded in 2006 by Nick Bruscia, Peter McCarthy and Heamchand Subryan. PechaKucha Buffalo features artists, designers, architects, actors, writers, landscape designers, musicians and more. We host fun and informal gatherings at local arts venues such as Hallwalls, Soundlab, Artspace, and WNY Book Arts Center. PKN Buffalo is currently organized by Nick Bruscia (University at Buffalo School of Architecture & Planning) and Joanna Gillespie (art consultant).
