Call for 20×20 presentations
Indulging in the excesses of the festive season, the eighth Pecha Kucha Night Wakefield is themed “Leftovers.” Presentations are sought in the 20 slides x 20 seconds format that respond to the idea of presented content as the “shallow-fried bubble and squeak” of your year. Scraps of thoughts, unused images, surplus projects and remainders of research are to be mashed up and loosely bound together in quick-fire presentations from anyone with visual and verbal excesses to share.

About Pecha Kucha Night: Pecha Kucha 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”, the Pecha Kucha presentation format 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.
