Event description

Description

Doors @ 7:00 PM / Presentations @ 7:30 PM

Choice. Which choice to make. How to make that choice and why. Which choice would you choose to re-choose?

Our presenters will each speak to the choices that define them, the ones they wrestle with and possibly the ones that they weren't able to make. In 6 minutes and 40 seconds, they will each share their unique viewpoint on the central theme of "Choice."

SPEAKERS:

  • Dale Leckie - Award-winning geologist & best-selling author
  • Anna Cooley - Director & Filmmaker
  • Kathryn Smith - Musician & Playwright
  • Brett Bergie - Writer & Cyclist navigating gender transition and her wife's cancer
  • With more speakers to be announced in the coming days!

PechaKucha Nights are part of an international speaker series spanning over 900 cities around the globe. They follow a specific format: each speaker presents 20 slides for only 20 seconds per slide. This means each speaker has only 6 minutes and 40 seconds to express their view on the theme. It makes the presentations concise, diverse, fast-paced and a lot of fun.

BEER: You'll have your choice of Village brews during the pre-show and Beer Break -- @VillageBrewery

GELATO: Fiasco Gelato will be scooping out your choice of delicious iced desserts -- @FiascoGelato

SNACKS: Savoury snacks will be on hand to complement your beer and gelato choices.

***Please bring CASH for all food and drink purchases.***

FAQs

What should I know about the $11 ticket price?

The ticket price includes a $1 donation to PechaKucha Global and $1.27 of it goes to the Eventbrite service charge but it also automatically gets you a membership in PechaKucha Night Calgary Society.

What is the PechaKucha Night Calgary Society?

We're an Alberta registered not-for-profit made up of a volunteer committee. We hold the local license for the PechaKucha speaker series as devised and designed by Klein-Dytham Architecture in Tokyo, Japan (PechaKucha Global). Learn more.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

This is an all ages event but if you plan to consume or purchase alcohol you will need to be 18+ and show a photo ID, so bring one.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Street parking is free after 6 PM. Parking in the CORE (TD Centre) is also free after 4 PM. There is a paid ground lot directly across the street. Carpooling with friends will make parking even easier. The 4th Street LRT station is just a block away. And there are bike racks around the venue.

What can I bring into the event?

Friends. Loved ones. Your choice.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

What's the refund policy?

The ticket is $11. If you need a refund in advance of the event we'll try our hardest to get you one. But keep in mind that PechaKucha usually sells out, so, most guests who suddenly realize they won't be able to make it to the show decide to pay it forward; they ask us to give their ticket to someone who showed up hoping they would get lucky with an extra ticket.

Do I need to print my ticket?

You can, but the Eventbrite app is pretty slick and we can scan the QR code right from your phone or even look you up by name. So, save some paper and keep your ticket digital if you can.
