PechaKucha Malden


Ever heard of PechaKucha nights? They are a fast-growing phenomenon that combine socializing with short and visual presentations about creative projects, stories, or ideas.

“The [PechaKucha] presentation format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture. The first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in their gallery/lounge/bar/club/creative kitchen, SuperDeluxe, in February, 2003. Klein Dytham architecture still organize and support the global PechaKucha Night network and organize PechaKucha Night Tokyo.”

PechaKucha offers a methodology for sharing topics of passionate interest in a way that keeps the talks snappy and allows many voices to share in one evening.
