PechaKucha Dayton is a free quarterly idea-sharing party and networking event for adults. PechaKucha, pronounced Pe – Chak – cha, Japanese for “chit chat,” is a fast-paced style of presenting using 20 slides discussed for 20 seconds each (20×20).
PechaKucha started in Tokyo in February 2003 by Klein Dytham Architecture. Dayton is one of over 1,000 official PK cities. We host a PK four times a year, attracting about 300 attendees to each event.
