Creative presentations by creative people. PechaKucha’s 20×20 format means, 20 images per person, 20 seconds per image. So in a quick 6 minutes, forty seconds, you’ll get a fun sampling of eight completely different personalities to inspire and entertain you.

Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, PechaKucha Night rests on a simple and concise presentation format that keeps ideas moving at a rapid pace. Despite the stuffy “presentation” moniker, PechaKucha’s atmosphere is casual and lax. The idea is to come away from the event with a greater perspective and richer ideas, but most importantly, to enjoy oneself in the process.

Feel free to invite your friends, co-workers, peers, blog, followers, and more. Everyone is invited to attend this free community event at the Creamery Arts Center, 411 N. Sherman Parkway on Saturday, May 12 from 7 to 10 p.m.

Interested in helping organize? Fantastic! Contact Amanda Snelson at with your questions. This event is volunteer driven, founded by Klein Dytham Architecture, and hosted by Springfield Regional Arts Council. Poster design by Jessie Kroeger.
