PechaKucha – Volume 2

Posted on Dec 19, 2019 by in Events

Saturday 11th Jan 2020


We held our inaugural PechaKucha Night at The Northern Eye Festival in October and we loved seeing such a varied selection of presenters and hearing all about their work.

We are now pleased to announce PechaKucha Night Volume 2.


What is PechaKucha?

PechaKucha (Japanese for chit-chat) is a simple storytelling format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically on a timer and you talk along to the images. There is no option to ‘pause’ or ‘go back’ - you have a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds to present!

It's fast, informative and above all, FUN!

Inspired by their desire to “talk less, show more,” Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo's Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa) created PechaKucha in February 2003. In 2004, cities in Europe began hosting PK Nights, followed over the years by hundreds of others. As of April 2019, PechaKucha Nights had been held in more than 1,142 cities worldwide with more than 3 million people attending.

We look forward to now bringing regular PK Nights to Colwyn Bay throughout 2020 - a perfectly named year for the fabulous '20 images x 20 seconds' format!


Volume 2 - North Wales Photo Special  

To celebrate our new exhibition by 'The North Wales Project'  Volume 2 will be held in Oriel Colwyn on the same evening as the exhibition opening.


Invitation to Present:

We would like to invite up to 8 individuals to share personal presentations specifically about photographic work being made in or about North Wales.

We can give you the tools to create the presentation (or create the presentation for you) all you need is 20 images and an eagerness to talk about and present your work. If that sounds like you and you’re up for the challenge, hit that apply button and tell us a little about the work. We will then get in touch if you are chosen to present.



There is no cost to either apply or present and audience/exhibition opening tickets are free of charge but due to space limitations, must be booked via the link below:
