We're back for another year!
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.
Here in New West PechaKucha has established itself as a strong community event, bringing together people hungry for local culture. Our presenters consist of individuals who typically have a tie to our city, through work or play, or are culturally relevant. This has allowed us have great mix of people from different domains.
Join us for drinks at 6:30 pm in the food hall and enjoy local craft beer, wine and relaxed sounds from Namoo Nara. River Market vendors, Longtail Kitchen and Re-Up BBQ will be open late to serve you before the show starts.
At 7:30 the fun starts with our ten PechaKucha talks.
After the event, continue the conversation with us at Wild Rice - one of our favourite spots in town for well-crafted drinks.
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.
