About Pecha Kuchas:

Pecha Kuchas, based on a concise presentation style that originated in Tokyo, allow for presenters to show images of a particular project. They follow a unique format that includes 20 images, for 20 seconds each image, lending themselves to both a cohesive and dynamic flow of presentations. Presentations run for a maximum of 6 minutes and 40 seconds each.
