PechaKucha Night HCMC Vol.10

December 8, 2016 | 02:00 pm GMT+7
Opening: 06:30 pm, Sun 11 Dec 2016

Meet young designers and their aspiring work for the 10th celebration in HCMC.

Organized in Tokyo, February 2003, PechaKucha Night (PKN) was originally an event for young designers to meet, network and show their work in public in the PechaKucha 20x20. It's a simple presentation format which involves talking along to 20 automatically advancing images, each for 20 seconds.

The Pecha Kucha Night has traveled to over 900 cities in the world and returned to Saigon this year. The first PechaKucha Night in Saigon was held in 2012.

This December PechaKucha HCMC will bring seven presenters to their Vol.10 Night on December 11. Join them at Saigon Outcast 188/1 Nguyen Van Huong, District 2.
