She also talks about her work and her initiatives not only in Winnipeg but in Churchill, Manitoba, the polar bear capital of the world.

Physics in Unexpected Places: An Improvised 20x20 Talk

BY CAITY CURTIS
@ VOL 36 ON NOV 22, 2018

PechaKucha Night Winnipeg challenged improviser Caity Curtis to perform an improvised 20x20 talk, with no prior knowledge of the slides that would project on stage. Before she started, Caity asked for a suggestion from the audience for a topic to frame her talk and chose the subject of "physics". Watch (and laugh) as Caity quickly tries to weave together a compelling talk about physics to the random selection of images put together by the PKN Winnipeg organizing team.

Caity's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 36, on November 22 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Where Do I Get My Ideas?

BY BESS HAMILTON
@ VOL 36 ON NOV 22, 2018

Writing is a practice that takes skill, dedication, and inspiration. The last of those three is sometimes hard to come by and it takes a good, steady search and an instinct to know what is or isn't inspiring and interesting enough to both write and read about.

Author Bess Hamilton's debut novel, Remembrance, was published in 2018 and in her PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk, she talks about her inspirations for the book. Here, she gives us a peek into her brainstorming process for Remembrance, and insight into her style and approach to writing.

Bess' talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 36, on November 22 2018, at the Park Theatre.

BY ALLY GONZALO

With his work, photographer Ally Gonzalo strives to bring home the idea that men of all shapes, sizes, and colours can be attractive.
