If you’re looking for a fun night on the town that is still design oriented, check out PECHA-KUCHA 20×20.

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”, 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.

Take a look at this great presentation by David Fletcher at a recent Pecha-Kucha 20×20 night in San Francisco that deals with “Devouring Architecture”.

You can give a Pecha-Kucha talk too. What would you present? What are you passionate about?
