We're back for our first PechaKucha Night of 2017!
Join us on Thursday 30 March 2017 at The Wonder Inn for another night of insight, inspiration and intrigue. Remember, each speaker only has 20 images, 20 seconds per image to speak, no stopping.
As ever, we have an eclectic mix of speakers, featuring videographers, designers, illustrators and organisations promoting female positivity!
The Wonder Inn will be opening proceedings by telling us their story.
And here’s the rest of the line-up:
- Radim Malinic - Creative Director of Brand Nu and author of the ‘Book of Ideas’
- Laura Boast - Founder and Creative Director at LJB Studio
- James Kennedy - Filmmaker at Trifecta Films
- Rita Cervetto - Designer at Common Good
- Daniel Thompson - Graphic Designer at Holdens Agency (and resident PechaKucha Night Manchester artist!)
- Graham Jones - Designer at Loose Collective and Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design at Manchester Metropolitan
- Christina Connelly - Senior UX Designer at the BBC (Children's) and illustrator
The Wonder Inn is a beautiful venue near Shudehill in Manchester. It offers a respite from the fast pace of the city, offering classes on yoga and meditation. We are really fortunate to have this space and encourage you to visit and support their mission.
10p from each ticket sold will be used by The Wonder Inn to plant a new tree. So feel good that you’re also helping the environment by coming along!

Bob Gaunt tells us about the artist Arthur Dooley, a janitor turned sculptor. His story seems influenced by writer Jacques Rancier, whose book reflects the redistribution of the social order, which Dooley immitated in his change from low value employee to independent artist. Gaunt explores Dooley's stations of the cross series, which evoke a mix of traditionally christian and labor-conscious communist thinking.
