About Pecha Kucha
Pecha Kucha 20×20 [ or ペチャクチャ ] is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. The presentation format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture. The first Pecha Kucha Night was held in Tokyo in their gallery/lounge/bar/club/creative kitchen, SuperDeluxe, in February, 2003. Klein Dytham architecture still organize and support the global Pecha Kucha Night network and organize Pecha Kucha Night Tokyo. Pecha Kucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps — just about anything, really — in the Pecha Kucha 20×20 format.

PK17 was presented amid the 20ft WIDE project – a collaborative case study in creating temporary activations for downtown alleys.
The activation includes a mix of installations and multi-generational happenings connecting us with the dynamic past, present and future roles of Austin’s urban alley system.
20ft Wide derives its name from the 20 feet that serve as the standard width for Austin’s downtown alleys as noted on the 1839 city map by Edwin Waller.
