Click here to attend on Facebook and to invite friends and colleagues to the event. To support the victims of the earthquake in Japan, this edition will be part of the international PechaKucha Inspire Japan initiative. We will be raising money with a special PechaKucha lottery during this evening.

    As a happy crossbreed between an elevator pitch and speed dating, PechaKucha Night will present eight brilliant people who will be sharing their work and ideas in 20 slides of 20 seconds. Breaks will be filled with drinks, funky tunes and visuals by our lovely Merel Das aka Blackbird Badger. We will astound you with fabulously inspiring presenters, great music to dance to and so many interesting people in one space at one time, you’ll wish you had more time to speak to all of them!
