Join us for a special PechaKucha Night in Huddersfield – a fast-paced evening full of exciting speakers and topics, with distinctly democratic flavour. The Media Centre has teamed up with the Notwestminster network to bring you an evening of creative, visual, quick-fire talks inspired by local democracy and civic life.
This special PechaKucha Night is part of Notwestminster 2020, a two-day event bringing together people who have something positive to say about local democracy and who are up for the challenge of making it work better. Each speaker will talk for 6 minutes 40 seconds on a theme of their choosing, following a “20 slides for 20 seconds” format.
PechaKucha is like a more democratic version of a TED talk. Think of it as our hustings and come along to learn something new and be entertained. It’s a fun way to find out what inspires some of our local democracy advocates and to hear about people’s passions and interests. There are always a few surprises.
