What is PechaKucha 20x20?
The Japanese word for "chit-chat", PechaKucha is a style of presentation that limits presenters to 20 images, shown for just 20 seconds each. It encourages people to be creative, while providing opportunities to network and present their projects to others. 

There will be a panel discussion and Q&A following the presentations. 

SPECIAL GUEST: Akira Uchimura, Executive Director of the newly formed Nikkei Youth Network based in Tokyo, Japan will be among the presenters.

The Nikkei Youth Network invites attendees to join them for a reception with cash bar at the Far Bar in Little Tokyo.

Other confirmed presenters: Craig Ishii, JACL-PSW; Nolan Dyo, Rising Stars Youth Leadership Program; Vicky Murakami-Tsuda, Discover Nikkei/Japanese American National Museum; Ryan Suda, Blacklava; Kevin Machino, UCLA Nikkei Student Union. Dana Heatherton, 2009 Nisei Week Queen, will be the moderator.
