VOL 14

May 16, 2013
@ The Park Theater and Movie Cafe

It's that time of the year when the weather is warm enough for you to stroll leisurely (and without toques) over to the Park Theatre, perhaps stopping for a Slurpee on the way. Once you arrive, PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 14 should have the perfect solution to thaw your brain freeze. 

The Manitoba Chapter of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC) is proud to present this lively event Thursday, May 16, 2013.

The Necessity of Parties

BY ROB KRISTJANSSON
@ VOL 14 ON MAY 16, 2013

Rob Kristjansson has worked on hundreds of events as the City of Winnipeg’s Special Events Liaison, and here he tells us about something he learned as a party planner; celebrations are, as he says, "not a nice to have, but a need to have." They bring communities together and enrich our lives by reminding us just how good it is to be alive and be together.

De-working

BY SARAH MICHAELSON
@ VOL 14 ON MAY 16, 2013

Sarah Michaelson describes how she confronted the lack of structure and purpose in her life after losing her job.

Drawing inspiration from her childhood experiences with homeschooling, Sarah learned to get used to the lack of outside forces provided by work and school, and to follow her passions, turning inspiration into work. She has been her own boss since 2009.
