PechaKucha New West - Volume 6: Riverside View
Saturday, 19 July 2014 from 4:00 PM to 11:00 PM (PDT)
New Westminster, BC
We're going on a field trip & we're bringing our friends!
For two years running the good people at Trapp Holbrook have stepped up to help us bring this event to the New West community and we're thrilled to have them on again as our lead sponsors. Thanks to their generous sponsorship, as well as financial support from both the Vancouver Foundation and the City of New Westminster we are pleased to offer our upcoming PechaKucha event on Saturday July 19th, 2014 at Pier Park for free.
For this year's summer event we're teaming up with Vancouver Urban Spaces Initiative to bring a laidback daytime dance party to New West's riverfront setting. With help from local supporting sponsors - Downtown New West BIA, SaveOn Foods, Hyack Interactive, River Market and SoAreWe Creative, we're excited to offer an afternoon of blips and beats from 4:00 to 9:00 pm from some of the Lower Mainland's finest electronic music DJs.
As the sun sets we'll start the presentations at approximately 9:00 pm, with our 10 presenters delivering their inspiring talks with the Fraser River, Pattullo Bridge and Golden Ears mountains as the backdrop.
Join us beforehand for some fresh summer treats and locally brewed suds from our friends at Longtail Kitchen, FarmCity Fresh Cart and Steel & Oak Brewing Co. Bring your loonies, toonies and fivers because this is a CASH ONLY event!
Lastly, be sure to bring your chairs, friends and blankets - trust us, it gets a bit chilly, for what will certainly be one of the most memorable nights of the summer.
If you've never attended a PeckaKucha event before, here is some background information:
Started in Tokyo in 2003 by Klein Dytham Architecture firm, PechaKucha Night began as a fun and unique night of local culture and entertainment. 10 presenters from a range of fields of interest share who they are and what makes them passionate.
There's only one catch - each presenter gets 20 images, 20 seconds each, making each presentation a 6 minute and 40 second shot of ideas and inspiration.
When & Where
PechaKucha New West
Melinda and Neal love dynamic cities and neighbourhoods with a strong sense of community - especially their own.
These two New Westies have no business starting something like PechaKucha New West....but are doing it anyways with the continued support of the River Market and many of their wonderful friends.
