Join us at the University of Salford to hear about our latest work and its impact on the world around us.

On the last Thursday of every month, staff, students and the public are invited to hear from three members of the University community, speaking on a common theme related to their area of expertise.

They will each give six minute PechaKucha-style presentations (20 slides of 20 seconds each) aimed at stimulating discussion and prompting collaboration and new ideas. Networking and informal discussions will follow for the last half an hour.

The theme for January is Access.

Future showcases will be held monthly on the last Thursday of the month.

What is PechaKucha?

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of ‘chit chat’, it is a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
