Pecha Kucha Nights (PKNs) happen three times a year and feature ten presentations on local ideas, projects and musings in the 20 slides at 20 seconds per slide format made popular worldwide by Klein Dytham Architecture.
Pecha Kucha Night is a welcoming, safe and inclusive place to share your ideas and stories. We encourage anyone of all ages, genders and backgrounds to submit a presentation.
Edmonton’s Pecha Kucha Nights (PKN) have reached audiences of engaged and creative young people on wide-ranging topics—from high rise towers dancing like J.Lo to why pineapples are the most interesting fruit to being part of the solution to youth homelessness—and everything in between.
From the Japanese phrase for “the sound of chit chat,” Pecha Kucha Nights are fun, informal gatherings where some of our city’s most engaged current and future leaders present inspirational ideas that have the power to transform our city. NextGen, a group of young, community-minded individuals supporting initiatives of interest to the “Next Generation,” is proud to be the first to host Pecha Kucha Nights in Western Canada.
