Pecha Kucha, which is Ja­panese for chit chat, sees prom­i­nent and emerg­ing cre­ative pre­sen­ters given 20 slides and just 20 sec­onds per slide to dis­cuss their ideas with an au­di­ence.

The free event was sched­uled for Jan­uary but was rained off.

The pre­sen­ta­tion starts at 8.20pm and the film screens at 9pm.
