PechaKucha 20x20 night at the House of Blues

A PechaKucha 20x20 was held Monday night in Chicago at the House of Blues. The Chicago Tribune’s award-winning photographers, videographers and editors presented a unique look at the world of photojournalism in a fun, informal night of rapid-fire storytelling. Nearly a dozen photojournalists presented what it’s like, and what it takes, to capture Chicago in images. I enjoyed the event tremendously, it was a very interesting fun filled night at the House of Blues.

What is PechaKucha 20x20?

PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.


Who invented the format?

The presentation format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture. The first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in their gallery/lounge/bar/club/creative kitchen, SuperDeluxe, in February, 2003. Klein Dytham architecture still organize and support the global PechaKucha Night network and organize PechaKucha Night Tokyo.

What are PechaKucha Nights?

PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps -- just about anything, really -- in the PechaKucha 20x20 format.
