Pecha Kucha Global Night – Vol 11

Pecha Kucha Global Night – Vol 11 will be back on Friday 20th February 2015. This is the first time Dundee will join this special event, aiming to connect the 800 PKN cities. On the night we will be hooking up with some of the other simultaneous PKNs running that evening!

PKN Global has the incredibly timely theme ‘Design in Your City’; and as Dundee has recently been awarded the title of UNESCO City of Design, you can expect a healthy dose of design mixed with the usual great hotchpotch of stuff! You can read and see more from a previous Global PKN here.

Also if you have any designs you would like to showcase in the Bonar Hall reception space then do get in touch, it’s a great chance to showcase your work and tell others what you’re up to. We also have a regular ‘spread the word’ feature, giving anyone the chance to grab the mic and shout out the events and opportunities that you have got coming up…

If you’ve not been to Pecha Kucha Night Dundee before, then all we can say is come along and try it out. PKN is part of a massive global network, which you can find out more about here. You get to hear from around 12 diverse individuals who speak about whatever they like, and it’s a speedy format – presenters have 20 images and 20 secs per image – so just under 7 mins, which means you hear a lot of interesting, though-provoking, often inspiring stuff. Watch all our previous PKN talks here.

What the devil is a Pecha Kucha Night anyway? Pecha Kucha Nights* were originally started back in 2003 in Tokyo, as an event for creatives to meet, network, and talk about their work in public. Since then Pecha Kucha, meaning ‘chit chat’ in Japanese, has spread internationally running in over 800 cities across the world. The much loved and respected format is relaxed, simple and enjoyable, with something for everyone – presenters have 6 minutes 40 seconds to show and talk through their 20 images, each for just 20 seconds – this keeps things fast and fun!

* Pecha Kucha was devised and shared by Klein Dytham architecture. The PKN Dundee event is organised and hosted by Creative Dundee.
