Heritage Pecha Kucha Back by Popular Demand

Heritage Pecha Kucha Back by Popular Demand

After last year’s sell-out Pecha Kucha night at Toitu Otago Settler’s Museum a second Heritage-themed event returns to Toitu, Tuesday 14 October, 7.30 pm. Dunedin’s 23rd Pecha Kucha night has a focus on the city’s warehouse precinct ahead of Dunedin City Council’s Vogel Street Party event on Saturday 18 October.

Presented in partnership with Heritage New Zealand and supported by the Dunedin City Council, the event will see 12 presenters show images and tell stories from vastly different heritage perspectives. Presenters have just 20 seconds to speak to each of their own 20 images, delivering a fast-paced, inspiring and informative talk supported by amazing visuals and unique stories.

Pecha Kucha #23 includes presenters as diverse as Bill Dacker (Parihaka prisoner stonework), Alison Breese (underground toilets of Dunedin), Dr Ian Chapman (The Empire Hotel and Dunedin sound) and Professor Kevin Clements (conscientious objectors).

Pecha Kucha Night events were devised by Klein Dytham Architecture in Tokyo and are now held in over 600 cities around the world. Dunedin Pecha Kucha events are produced by the Dunedin Fringe Arts Trust in partnership with a range of organisations.

WHAT: Pecha Kucha Night #23

WHEN: Tuesday 14 October, 7.30 pm (doors and cash bar open 7 pm)

WHERE: Toitu Otago Settlers Museum, Queens Garden, Dunedin

TICKETS & INFO: $12 ($10 Unwaged, Student, Senior). Advanced ticket sales and further info at and any remaining tickets will be available for cash door sales on the night
