Event Details

PechaKucha Dundee, Vol 1


Creative Dundee is excited to announce that PechaKucha is coming to Dundee, as a regular event.

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in 2003, as an event for creatives to meet, network, and hear other creatives talk about their work. Since then it’s spread internationally, now running in over 440 cities across the world. The much loved format is relaxed, simple, enjoyable, with something for everyone – presenters have just 20 seconds per slide, to talk through their 20 slides.

PKN Dundee* is proud to be the latest addition to the PechaKucha network; and we’re looking forward to providing you with the best selection of creative speakers from our city and beyond. You can expect a fast and fun night of drinks and chat, hearing from a mix of speakers from the worlds of architecture, photography, product design, graphic design, illustration, animation, digital, analogue, art and much much more.
