PechaKucha Night is an entertainment event held several times a year in downtown Orlando. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for "chitchat," PechaKucha rests on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes the presentations concise and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. Speakers present their PechaKuchas on any subject, from the personal to the public. PechaKucha Night wa

s devised in Tokyo, as a chance for creative people to meet, network, and share their work. Since its debut in 2003, it has turned into a massive celebration, with events in hundreds of cities around the world and audiences in the thousands. We first began hosting Orlando PechaKucha Nights in October 2010, quickly gaining an enthusiastic following and positive media attention. Pecha Kucha is an opportunity to listen, learn, and engage... and unwrap the hidden brilliance of Orlando!

PechaKucha Orlando got a shoutout this afternoon from Kathy Ramsberger, CEO of the Dr. Phillips Center. She was one of the speakers, including the Mayor and other leaders, at a press conference to announce the opening of Steinmetz Hall next year.... and thus the final completion of the DPC after years of planning, funding, and construction. Congrats to everyone who worked to make this day happen for Orlando!

"It's jumping out of a plane with no parachute... and storytelling at its finest." Yesterday's WMFE "Intersection" interview with Aquanza Cadogan and Matt Peddie is a great introduction to PechaKucha and why it's such a powerful storytelling tool, and a community event that leaves you "wowed."

In her own words, Jill Shargaa is “Half-designer! Half-illustrator! Half-a-mind to admit it!” We count three halves, but that's because there's so much more to Jill. She’s also an accomplished comedian who turned her first PechaKucha talk for us ("The Awe of Awesome") into a TED talk that's been viewed 159,000 times. We’re excited to have Jill back on the PechaKacha stage on October 9 at the Dr. Phillips Center. We can’t wait to see you there, and as she would say, “Now on with the show!”

October 7, 2010. About 30 brave souls came out to the Cameo theater to see this event nobody had ever heard of, with the name nobody could pronounce. The bar's audio-visual equipment went down, and our wonderful speaker Tracy Ryzan Ross had to do her talk in the dark. It was all a bit of a mess, but it was wonderful too. Something was happening in that room... you could feel it.

Our Story

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo, as a chance for creative people to meet, network, and share their work. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for "chitchat," PechaKucha rests on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes the presentations concise and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. Speakers present their PechaKuchas on any subject, from the personal to the public.

Since its debut in 2003, it has turned into a massive celebration, with events in over 1,000 cities around the world and audiences in the thousands. We began hosting PechaKucha Nights in downtown Orlando in 2010, quickly gaining an enthusiastic following and positive media attention. Speaking from the stage in Tokyo, the creators of the format called Orlando “one of the best PechaKucha Nights in the world.”

PechaKucha Night is an opportunity to listen, learn, and engage... and unwrap the brilliance of Orlando!
