Pecha Kucha

PK Night summer roadhouseweb

Pecha Kucha is a quarterly storytelling event that brings people together to present and discuss new ideas around sustainability topics.  Each season, several people from the community give presentations that challenge people to think differently about conservation, the environment, climate change and each other.

What is pecha kucha?
Pecha Kucha translates as “the sound of conversation” in Japanese.  Devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham in 2003, it began as a place for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has evolved since then and has become a terrific venue for getting ideas and concepts out in all sorts of topic areas.

Presenters each have 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to discuss. Slides are automatically timed to be exactly 20 seconds with the total time for each presenter is 6 minutes and 40 seconds. This keeps the pace fun & exciting. Learn more about the international movement at
