Event Details

PechaKucha Night Oakland is an occassional mixer for sharing images + ideas to fuel participants' investigation, innovation and inspiration!

Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", Pecha Kucha Night (PKN) rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds.  Simply put: 6 minutes and 40 seconds of digital performance art!

Presenters enter the space from the full spectrum of creative activity including people working in architecture & landscape, interactive media, food justice, fashion, tech & design, and academia (to name a few) - and live as activists, artists, chefs, coolhunters, curators, designers, dreamers, entrepreneurs, fabricators, hackers, historians, makers, rabblerousers, scientists, ETC.

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.  Still co-presented by its inventors Klein Dytham Architecture in Japan, our version is brought to you live by Ashara Ekundayo and Team PKN_Oakland which includes Weyland Southon, Scott LaRockwell and a small but fierce group of Volunteers + cool community partners and a couple of corporate-cats.

PKN has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in more than 550 cities around the world, and officially returns to Oakland on the heels of our cultural renaissance! Bring it on!
