Pecha Kucha Night at the Ateneo at the City of Knowledge

JUNE 15TH, 8:20 p.m.

Pecha Kucha or Pecha Kucha Night is a presentation format (mostly creative) during which a person exhibits a work in a simple and informal way.  Originally created by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, of Klein-Dytham Architecture, in Tokyo in 2003, as a meeting point for young designers where they could show their works in public and exchange opinions. Since then, the format has extended like a virus to many cities across the world.  The name Pecha Kucha derives from a Japanese term that imitates the sound of a conversation (“chit-chat”).

TBWA Panamá and Social Snack coordinate and organize each one of the Pecha Kucha Panama episodes.

The presenters (and a great part of the audience) come from the fields of design, architecture, photography and art, although the phenomenon has extended recently to the business world. The objective is to show new, innovative and creative ideas.  Pecha Kucha has been copied in more than 300 cities in all of the continents and each city must organize at least 4 meetings a year. 

In its seventh edition Pecha Kucha Night Panama will take place in the Ateneo, organized in strict collaboration with the City of Knowledge Foundation, and will count with 9 talented speakers: Nina Tissera, Jonathan Harker, Abner Benaim, Gustavo Núñez, Diana Gómez, Manuel Lorenzo, Sebastián Mendoza, Yigo Sugasti and Ferrán Galindo.
