The PechaKucha format – 20 images x 20 seconds – was started in Tokyo, Japan in 2003. It began as an event for young designers to meet, network and show their work in public. It now takes place in more that 900 cities in the world.

Mark Dytham, founder of PechaKucha Global, kicked off PechaKucha Portland as advisor and emcee in October 2007. Since then, we’ve put on 4 events each year for enthusiastic crowds and inspired additional Maine cities to the family – comprising PechaKucha Maine.

With the “I Am Other” theme, we will look for stories that involve the transformation of negative experience of otherness into a positive tool for empowerment. Topics could include cultural, racial, or ethnic divides; gender, homelessness, incarceration, differently-abled, indigenous ancestry – stories that would inspire our community.
