About The Event

PechaKucha Nights are back! This time around we are turning the spotlight on the stories that get lost in the everyday hustle of life. Unravel the complexity of this city with the stories of its people. The stories of Bombay.

Explore the paradox that is Bombay with 7 brilliant presenters.

Never attended a PechaKucha before?

Hold up! We're going to start from the beginning! PechaKucha was first devised in Tokyo back in February 2003 as an event for young designers to network and showcase their work in a public setting. Today, it is an evening celebrated across hundreds of cities worldwide.

This entire event rests on a simple 20x20 presentation format. A highly curated set of speakers will each show 20 images, for 20 seconds each. The idea is simple - tell your story within 20 pictures.
