When & Where
Pecha Kucha Fort Worth
Fort Worth's place to think big!
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
PechaKucha Fort Worth was started in the Spring of 2011 by Joe Niedziela, Alesha Niedziela and Wayne Nichols to bring together people from a variety of creative backgrounds who are interested in sharing their work, processes, and/or ideas by way of our unique 20x20 presentation format. We are joined by Annie Nichols and along with our venue partners in putting on Pecha Kucha Night in Fort Worth.
