Pecha Kucha is a night founded three years ago by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham in Japan as a place where  young designers could meet, network, and show their work in public. The organizers devised a strict system for presenting work to ensure a fair share of voice: Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. "This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show," says the website.
