VOL 16

August 12, 2017
@ Queen's Park Bandshell
Predictably GOOD FUN.
 
 
Started in Tokyo in 2003 by Klein Dytham Architecture firm, PechaKucha Night began as a fun and unique night of local culture and entertainment. Ten presenters from a range of fields share their interesting projects, inspirations and passions. There's only one catch - presenters get 20 images, 20 seconds each, making for a 6 minute and 40 second shot of ideas and inspiration.
 
We hope you love the outdoors! Because for Volume 16, we thought we thought we'd move it back to an outdoor setting and for the first time host it in historic Queen's Park.
 
Join us for food & drinks at 6:00 pm at the bandshell in Queen's Park and enjoy local craft beer, wine and the sounds of DJ Mutes Ito. 
 
At 8:00 the fun begins with our ten PechaKucha talks. There will be an intermission after the first five, giving you an opportunity to refuel and mingle with your fellow attendees.
 
A huge thanks to our lead sponsors; Steel & Oak Brewing Co., Garbutt & Dumas Real Estate & Brook Pooni. As well, we'd like to acknowledge our supporting sponsors; the Arts Council of New West, Carter Hales Design Lab & Uptown Property Group.
