Pecha Kucha was devised in Tokyo and is a networking event for creative people.  Throughout Scotland, many  ‘creative hubs’ have been delivering Pecha Kucha events and have found them to be an extremely successful way of promoting the fantastic activities taking place within their local creative industry sectors.
