In collaboration with Creative Dundee, Abertay University’s 25th anniversary celebrations are set to continue as a handful of its Graduate Network gear up to talk all things ‘Bell Street and Beyond’…PechaKucha* style!
With a nod to their Bell Street campus connections, 10 graduates from Abertay University, Dundee Institute of Technology, and Dundee College of Technology will share stories about their diverse career journeys through this fun and informal format, imparting collective wisdom from professional and personal experiences over the years.
From football management and travel vlogging to games development and social entrepreneurship, this event is perfect for regular PechaKucha-goers and those who’d love to learn a little about a lot.

*PechaKucha is a simple quick-fire talking format – presenters show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. PechaKucha, or ‘chit chat’ in Japanese, was developed by Klein Dytham Architecture, in Tokyo back in 2003.
