VOL 19

June 08, 2018
@ Varley Art Gallery

Connect with Markham’s creative communities at PechaKucha Markham! We know what you’re asking: What is a PechaKucha? PechaKucha (the Japanese word for chit-chat) is not your typical slide show: presenters share their ideas in 20 slides x 20 seconds each, no exceptions. 

The Markham Public Library and the Varley Art Gallery have partnered to host Markham’s PechaKucha nights, featuring artists, thinkers and innovators from Markham and beyond. 

Tickets available May 1 at and will sell out fast!

Admission is Pay-What-You-Want so please give generously. $1 from each attendee's donation is contributed towards the Global PechaKucha Night fund to support over 1000 cities holding these events around the world. 

Grab a glass of beer or wine (cash bar), and enjoy complimentary appetizers and music. At the break, enjoy a PechaKucha-style exhibition tour.

Stick around for the Post-PK party for more meeting and mingling!
