Story & Recommendation
PechaKucha Night Kyoto – a night of quirky, idea-filled presentations and drinks
PechaKucha Nights are lively events filled with exciting, non-formal presentations. However, while the presentations may be loose, they must follow one, simple rule; one slide every 20 seconds, for a total of 20 slides in 6 minutes and 40 seconds. Every event follows a singular theme, but the actual contents of the presentations are entirely unrestricted. Some people speak about a hobby of theirs, while others talk about a recent place they visited on holiday. No matter what the theme, the venue is always sure to be filled with the fun and exciting atmosphere brought about by audience and presenter discussions and laughter and applause by the beer wielding crowd. PechaKucha Nights originated in Tokyo back in 2003 as an event for young designers to showcase their latest works. However, the events spread and are now held in over 1,100 cities across the globe. The name PechaKucha refers to the Japanese onomatopoeia for the sounding of “chit-chat.” PechaKucha Nights hope to create new opportunities for creativity to flourish as they aim to move people away from passive listening and actively encourage communication between the audience and those on stage. PechaKucha Night Kyoto is held around four times a year. The defining feature of PechaKucha Nights in Japan’s ancient capital is the unique venue choices, such as shrines, and presentations by artisans continuing long-held Japanese traditions. Also, PechaKucha Nights often collaborate with other groups and companies, and the September 4th, 2019 event is planned to be held in collaboration with ICOM, the International Council of Museums. The event will be held around the theme of “Museums and Communities!” and will feature English presentations by four overseas ICOM speakers and three local speakers from Kyoto. If you’re at all interested in the ideas of people in Kyoto or the ancient city’s unique sensibilities and world view, why not come and check out a PechaKucha Night?
