Creative companies and individuals are getting the chance to show off their talents for free at a special event to be staged at Huddersfield Media Centre.
But there’s a catch. Instead of the usual powerpoint presentation, they must screen images of their work using a rapid pace presentation format of 20 images each for just 20 seconds – and tailor their commentary to suit.
The so-called PechaKucha Nights are already popular in more than 300 cities worldwide.
The word PechaKucha is a Japanese term for the sound of conversation.
The free event comes to the Media Centre’s Café Ollo at 7pm on Thursday.
Media centre spokeswoman Clare Danek said: “PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings for creative people to share their ideas, work and thoughts – just about anything they are passionate about.
“The presenters are drawn from the Kirklees design community – bringing a 21st century twist to Huddersfield’s reputation for creative innovation.”
The format was devised by architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham who held the first PechaKucha Night at their gallery in Tokyo in 2003.
From there, the idea has taken off around the world.
