Next Event

04 NOV


Vol. 3 of PechaKucha Night in Prince George has a special twist! Local municipal elections are coming, and we've decided to mark the occasion with an all-candidates forum, PechaKucha style.

Join us for the rapid-fire presentation night that will showcase a dozen speakers, each running for local office and presenting their personal story under seven minutes, leaving us plenty of time to mix, mingle, socialize, and to get to know the candidates.

The event is free and no tickets are issued - first come, first served. Refreshments provided by donation.

This event is hosted and sponsored by the College of New Caledonia Students' Union.

About the Theme: PG Politics
Every PechaKucha Night features a new theme, and since general election day for municipal elections in November 15th, there's no better time to host an all-candidates forum, PechaKucha style! Thanks to the generous support of College of New Caledonia Students' Union, the theme of our third event will showcase personal, creative, and innovative stories about the campaign trail and public office. We hope that the popular PechaKucha event will engage a wider audience in the democratic process. This PechaKucha Night will adhere strictly to the PechaKucha format: there will be time for mingling before and after the event and during intermission, but there will be no public debate or question period.
