PechaKucha is a presentation format invented by Tokyo-based firm Klein Dytham Architecture in 2003. At every event, speakers are given 20 slides to talk about whatever they like, but each slide advances automatically after only 20 seconds. This 20x20 format gives each speaker a total time of six minutes and forty seconds. PechaKucha Night has over 1200 city chapters all over the world.

PechaKucha Night Winnipeg was established by the Graphic Designers of Canada in 2010. Each PechaKucha Night – or PKN – is a fun, and informal evening where creative and inspiring Winnipeggers talk about their ideas, stories, experiences, or work. PKN Winnipeg is held quarterly and usually at the Park Theatre.


This year's posters are designed by Andrew Boardman.
