What is ‘PechaKucha’? Derived from a Japanese word meaning ‘chitchat’, PechaKucha is a presentation style in which twenty slides are shown for twenty seconds each – totaling to six minutes and forty seconds. This provides a concise and fast-paced presentation format powered by multiple speakers. The earliest PechaKucha was in February 2003, spearheaded by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo’s Klein-Dytham Architecture. ‘Talk less, show more’ is the essence of a PechaKucha, it is a way for people to meet, show their work, and exchange ideas in 6 minutes and 40 seconds.

The event will be graced by local performers Taw and Judah. Taw Muhammad was a finalist in The Voice Philippines 2013 and Judah Penacerrada of the band Sons and Daughters.
