In essence, PechaKucha is a conversation starter, a networking opportunity, and an informal night for folk to come together, share and draw inspiration. And just as crucially, it’s a brilliant night out- Specialty Cocktails, Tasty Nibbles, Visual Treats, and a chance to connect with ideas and creatives in our disparate community.
The key to PechaKucha is its patented democratic system. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of time.

NO/other and The Building Block at the Icehouse has invited 10 practitioners from various fields in the local creative and academic community.
