Crit Care Talks Night Powered by PechaKucha
Celebrate the festive season with us for our final ICN night of the year in Sydney!
David Anderson has come up with a superb plan:
A Pecha Kucha night at a Sushi Bar in Sydney’s Inner West
If you’ve never heard of PK’s you’re in for a treat:
- Short, snappy talks
- Only and exactly 20 slides per talk
- Only 20 seconds allowed per slide
Only 30 or so people can come so RSVP ASAP and tell your friends! It’s free and nutrition (Sushi) will be provided courtesy of Baxter.
This is endorsed by the real PechaKucha and the talks will also go on their site.

PechaKucha or Pecha Kucha (Japanese: ペチャクチャ, IPA: [petɕa ku͍̥tɕa], 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 (PKNs).
PechaKucha Night was devised in February 2003 by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo’s Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa), as a way to attract people to SuperDeluxe, their experimental event space in Roppongi, and to allow young designers to meet, show their work, and exchange ideas.
In 2004, a few cities in Europe began holding PKNs, the first of several hundred cities that have since launched similar events around the world.
As of May 2014, PKNs were held in over 700 cities worldwide.
Powered by PechaKucha
“Powered by PechaKucha” events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format.
