THE inspiring stories of several locals will be told through PechaKucha next Friday night.

PechaKucha, meaning “chit chat” in Japanese, originated in Tokyo in 2003. It is fast paced visual story-telling at its finest, as presenters speak about 20 images for 20 seconds each. 

In 2022, Atherton joined more than 1200 cities globally in hosting PechaKucha Nights when founders Deanna Maich and Meiyin Ahnsuz saw an opportunity to strengthen community networks through the family-friendly event.

Now in its third season, Volume 7 is once again being coordinated by a core team of volunteers, and is excited to see numbers grow. 

The speakers will speak on topics such as Wildlife Education with a Twist, North Queensland Forests, The History of Drag, Travels in India, Projects of a Playwright, Carnarvon Great Walk, Herbalism and Health and Giving Migrants a Voice. 

Tickets are available to purchase at or by emailing

The date for Volumes 8 is booked for 30 August, with expressions of interest from presenters, volunteers and sponsors welcomed.
