What is Pecha Kucha?

PechaKucha (Japanese: ペチャクチャ, IPA: [petɕa kɯ̥tɕa], chit-chat) is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights.

Taos’ own creatives present 20 slides in 20 seconds at this favorite, almost always sold-out event! Pecha Kucha night, now in over 900 cities worldwide , was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Taos Pecha Kucha nights are organized by Richard Spera and Matt Thomas, a Taos local and founder of the PASEO Project in Taos.

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased in advance at the TCA office behind Caffe Renato Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm or by calling (575)758-2052 during those hours.
