PechaKucha Night Christchurch 13 is our contribution to PK's Global Cities Week.
Instead of making this a huge event, we've scaled it down. There will be seven presentations. Our venue will be as eloquent as any of our speakers on the topic of Christchurch: we're holding this in association with Gap Filler, piggy-backing on their outdoor cycle cinema project on the former Cycle Trading and Printstop sites on the corner of Manchester St & Dundas St.
Ride along at 8pm and be prepared to do your bit to power this event! The system can't take knobbly tires, so slip on your slicks and one of our volunteers will help you take a stand. See the Gap Filler website if you want to know more about how it works: www.gapfiller.org.nz
This is the first outdoor PKN in Christchurch, with a bit of uncertainty involved (bad weather, power failure) but that's perfectly appropriate to the occasion. We can't promise a high level of comfort and we're not selling tickets or running a bar like we usually do; you will need to bring your own seating and refreshments. A coffee cart will be on site and Gap Filler will sell a few tasty treats. Entry is by koha and all donations will go to support Gap Filler.
If it's looking like we'll get rained out, keep your eye out for a postponement notice and we'll hold it the following day.
Huge thanks to the Gap Filler crew for having us.
