PechaKucha Night returns to Richmond Feb. 20
Richmond’s fifth PechaKucha Night next Thursday will invite local change-makers to explore the theme What’s Your Story? at Kwantlen Polytechnic University.
Eleven speakers from a variety of different professions and backgrounds will be presenting their stories, reflecting on influential experiences and the changes that these have brought about in fields ranging from design and art to social inclusion, environmental activism and entrepreneurship.
Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of chit chat, PechaKucha is a presentation format where speakers present 20 images and tell their stories as the photos advance every 20 seconds. The six-and-a-half minute presentation is designed to engage and enlighten the audience.
Admission to the Feb. 20 PechaKucha Night is free and takes place at the Melville Centre for Dialogue at Kwantlen’s Richmond campus, 8771 Lansdowne Rd., from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
PechaKucha Night is a partnership between the City of Richmond’s public art program and Kwantlen’s Chip and Shannon Wilson School of Design. What’s Your Story? is the first of four PechaKucha Nights planned for Richmond this year.
