PechaKucha Night in Winnipeg, Vol. 19

GDCMB presents Vol. 19 of PechaKucha in Winnipeg on Thursday, October 23, 2014. Who knows what will happen? Unpredictability is part of the appeal of PechaKucha Night. Often, a theme emerges organically – the speakers of a particular PKN circle around an issue. Sometimes it’s the notion of being responsible for the food we consume, other times it’s the idea of inequality and what people can do to make the world a fairer place.

We’re not sure how the October 23 PKN will look once it really happens but we’re pretty sure it will continue an awesome tradition. Some amazing people have been slotted to make their presentations in the 20 × 20 format (20 slides, 20 seconds each, adding up to six minutes and 40 seconds per person) and we’ll roll with the ideas they throw at us.

PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 19 takes place at the Park Theatre, located at 698 Osborne Street. Doors open at 7:30pm, and the show begins at 8:20pm. Admission is a suggested $10 donation at the door.

Falk, singer with Les Jupes; Roberta Hansen, graphic designer; Rhiannon Leier Blacherm, two-time Olympian; Joanne Machado, Habitat for Humanity Women Build volunteer; James Magnus-Johnston, Director of Canadian Operations for the Centre for the Advancement of a Steady State Economy and speaker for zero growth for sustainability; Jomar Manzano, DCRA Co-Chair and structural designer EIT; Molly McCracken, Director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives; Karen Niedzwiecki & Elaine O’Keeffe, photographers; Leif Norman, photographer and organizer of Flash Fest; Carl Shura, graphic designer; Melissa Tait, journalist  and multimedia editor at the Winnipeg Free Press; and Liz Wreford-Taylor, Plain Projects Sites.
