PK Night started in Tokyo in February 2003 – PechaKucha is Japanese for chit chat – it was originally conceived as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. Just 20 seconds for each of the 20 slides means that all the presentations are under seven minutes. PK nights run in over 800 cities around the world.
The line up for the Fife event is listed below and avocadosweet.com is delighted to have being invited to take part. You can book here for this free event.
