BY BOB SOMERS
@ VOL 30 ON MAY 11, 2017

Success is a Moving Target

BY ANDI SHARMA
@ VOL 30 ON MAY 11, 2017

PKN Winnipeg Vol. 13 Recap

On March 7, PechaKucha Winnipeg's 13th installment took place at the Park Theatre. We are all in agreement that this may have been one of the best ones yet! Although to be honest, we probably say that every time. Certain themes seem to evolve out of PechaKucha Nights. It's an organic thing; the presenters don't create idea cartels ahead of time. This time the ideas were diverse but kept circling back to (as one member of the audience put it) how design and visual communication can power physical and social change. The 11 presentations were all remarkable in their own ways: some poetic, some more visual, and then there was the musical finale. Our presenters were: Matt Henderson (Teacher and Activist) Andrew Yankiwski (Partner, Precursor Productions) Blair Helgason (Designer) Brian Kelcey (Writer, Speaker and Policy Consultant) John Johnston (Freelance Photographer) Nicole Barry (Co-Founder, Half Pints Brewery) Wendy Sawatzky (Artist), Matt Brooks (Graphic Design, RRC Student) Howard Gurevich (Owner, Gurevich Fine Art) Joseph Ranseth (Purpose-Driven Marketer) Erin Propp & Larry Roy (Singer/Songwriter). The GDC Manitoba Chapter is proud to present PechaKucha Night and to be part of the worldwide phenomenon. To read more about the presenters, please visit the event page at pechakucha.org. Karen Niedzwiecki, CGD has written a recap of the event on her blog, karenia. Carson Samson, CGD has also compiled notes ("snippets," he calls ’em) of each PKNWPG Vol. 13 presentation.
