Debbie Vokey

Photographer/Retired Civil Servant in Winnipeg

Debbie Vokey is a photographer who took the PechaKucha Night Winnipeg stage to talk about her latest project, "It's a Squirrelly World", a series of portraits of her small, furry friends: squirrels. For this project, she sets up tiny dioramas of human-like environments and waits for her backyard squirrel pals to come to interact with the scenes. Take a look at these surreal photos that Debbie made and listen as she answers some of the questions she gets about her project. 

Debbie's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Design Is...

BY DREW WIEBE
@ VOL 35 ON SEP 06, 2018

Graphic designer and photographer Drew Wiebe has been collecting quotes on the definition of design for the last three years. From this exercise, she hopes to one day figure out what design "is". Although she doesn't have the answer yet, the collection of these quotes exposes some of the attitudes and key ideas behind the practice of design. After watching Drew's talk and reading some of the quotes she has collected, maybe you'll get a better sense of what "Design is..."

Drew's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Fear, Technology, and Why You Should Be Friends With Me

BY AYLA MANNING
@ VOL 35 ON SEP 06, 2018

Ayla Manning is a student and heritage interpreter at the Lower Fort Garry National Historic Site, where she dresses and acts as though she's living at Red River in the 1850's. It's a fascinating job that requires you to not only manage answering questions from extremely modern visitors, but also absorb an exorbitant amount of knowledge on how to live without technology. Ayla explains in this PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk that this knowledge is extremely useful and practical in many situations, including the apocalypse.

Ayla's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Kitchen Counterpoint

BY JULIAN BEUTEL
@ VOL 35 ON SEP 06, 2018

And now for something really special.

Musician and composer Julian Beutel had a different idea of how to make use of the PechaKucha Night format. For this "talk", Julian did a live musical performance using a pre-recorded track he composed and did the sound effects right on stage. The piece itself revolves around a central space, the kitchen, and the cast of characters that use it. Julian developed Kitchen Counterpoint in collaboration with Angie Shyr and Seth Boyden. 

Julian's performance was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Face/Value

BY ANDREW BLAIR
@ VOL 35 ON SEP 06, 2018

Artist Andrew Blair is an artist who prefers more traditional media and whose prime subject matter is the human face. His portraits can be described as expressive, both in terms of what the faces show, and in the nuances of his techniques. Andrew walks us through his work and his ideas, and shows us how else he's engaging the community-at-large with his art in this PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk.

Andrew's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre.
