PechaKucha Night #23: Adulting is Hard

Enjoy a series of stories on the illuminating resolutions and revelations made by friends and neighbors, accompanied by light refreshments and a cash bar. The presentations are lightning fast: 20 slides, 20 seconds each. Reflect on being adults and what you wish you had learned as a child.

What is PechaKucha?

PechaKucha Night is a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation (“chit chat”), it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. It also makes for a lot of fun and a lot of laughs!

Watch the video below for one example of how a PK might look and sound.
