So get your galoshes ready, because another group of creative Winnipeggers are raring to take the Park Theatre stage for PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 34!

Balance and Bicycles

BY ROBERTA HANSEN
@ VOL 34 ON MAY 31, 2018

How do you find balance in an ever-changing world full of noise and distraction? Graphic designer Roberta Hansen discovered the answer on two wheels, through her and her husband's bike tours of the Pacific West Coast and Portugal. Find out the lessons they have learned while pedalling through scenic landscapes and maybe you too can experience (at least second-hand) what it means to find your center.

Roberta's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 34, on May 31, 2018, at the Park Theatre.

The Circle of We

BY ANASTASIA CHIPLESKI
@ VOL 34 ON MAY 31, 2018

The word "we" is deceptively uncomplicated but can have powerful connotations that can span many social and political contexts. Editor Anastasia Chipelski is well-versed in the many definitions and implications of the seemingly simple pronoun, and how it leads to questions about identity and belonging. 

Anastasia's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 34, on May 31, 2018, at the Park Theatre.

How Social Procurement and Social Enterprise Can Save Government Lots of Money

BY SHAUN LONEY
@ VOL 34 ON MAY 31, 2018

In this inspiring talk, author and social entrepreneur Shaun Loney describes the power of social enterprises and how they benefit not only the communities and the government bodies that utilize them, but also the people – often from adverse circumstances – that are under their employ. Shaun advocates that social procurement makes more sense financially, socially, and economically.

Shaun's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 34, on May 31, 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Feminism in Legal Television

BY LEAH LEIBL
@ VOL 34 ON MAY 31, 2018

Lawyer Leah Leibl is an avid film and television buff, so it is to nobody's surprise that she combined her vocation with her avocation for her Masters thesis on the role of female characters in popular legal television. In this talk, Leah briefly describes her thesis and elaborates on how well-known law-focused TV shows imply and reflect, on a greater level, the importance of female mentorship and support in the industry and the workplace.

Leah's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 34, on May 31, 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Dan Mitchell: The Guy Who Accidentally Started a Candle Company & Then Quit His Corporate Career to Pursue Happiness (No, Seriously)

BY DANIEL MITCHELL
@ VOL 34 ON MAY 31, 2018

"Mitchell's don't quit."

Entrepreneur Dan Mitchell shares his personal story on how he went from living a dispassionate corporate life to serendipitously starting his independent and successful candle company, Farmer's Son Co. He also shares how his family (and their motto) has given him the strength and the courage to pursue happiness in the face of risk and ultimately escape the metaphorical beige office.

Find out more about Dan and Farmer's Son Co on his website at http://www.farmerssonco.com/.
