PechaKucha Night in Sunshine Coast Vol. 9 was recently postponed (now set for April 4), and here's more info from organizer Sue Davis, as well as a look at the poster that was produced for the event -- you'll also find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.
Sunshine Coast PKN #9 was washed out last week when torrential rain caused flash flooding and several of our presenters were flood-bound. We have reschedule for next Wednesday. 4 April and have a great line-up including filmmaker and motivational speaker Toni Powell -- who founded the 'Heart of Gold' film festival and more recently the 30 day gratitude challenge. We also have producers for the online music sensation balconytv, artists, poets and more. Graphic design created by Evangeline Cachinero, a local visual artist and graphic designer.

PechaKucha Night on the Sunshine Coast Vol. 7 is coming up next week (Tuesday, August 2) at The J (Noosa Junction), and as the poster reveals, the theme is "Green Love" -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. Here's a bit more on the event from organizer Susan Davis:
We are excited to feature some amazing presenters at our 'Green Love' PKN next week on the Sunshine Coast. We have an Aboriginal presenter, Samantha Martin, who is a great ambassador for her culture, as well as permaculture designers, green art practitioners and more. We were overwhelmed with expressions of interest for this one -- it seems that folks are certainly keen to share the (green) love!

PechaKucha Night in Sunshine Coast Vol. 6 is happening tomorrow night (June 14) at the Nambour Civic Centre -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page. Here's more on the event from organizer Susan Davis:
Following on from the global PKN Inspire Japan campaign, the Sunshine Coast (Aust) will continue with the 'Inspire' theme for their PKN #6 this Tues June 14. It's been a tough year for so many this year, beginning with torrential rain and floods in Australia to earthquakes in NZ and Japan with ongoing flow on effects. Some of our Sunshine Coast artists and creatives will share some of what inspires them and will hopefully provide some inspiration for others. Featuring Indigenous artist Jandamarra Cadd, landscape architect (and Japanese art lover) James Birrell, Empress of Weaving Rene Bahloo, sculptor and activist Greg Windsor, photographer James Ray, independent producer Kath Quigley, musician/artist Kari and Salt magazine editor Kate Johns.

Please note that they will be accepting donations to reconstruction efforts (as part of our collaboration with Architecture for Humanity), and that they hope to do something on April 16, as part of the Global PechaKucha Day.

Love, Luck and Loss – creative journeys to the here and now is the theme for presentations at the Sunshine Coast's next PechaKucha event at 5.30 pm on Tuesday March 29 at the Nambour Civic Centre.

Sunshine Coast's PechaKucha Night Vol. 4 was held last night -- you can see the list of presenters who participated on the official event page -- but we still wanted to share the flyer that was produced for the Halloween-themed event where, as organizer Sude Davis tells us, they asked "creatives to share the 'tricks' of their trade or 'treat' us to their success stories and achievements." The design is by Gary Cobb.
