PechaKucha Night returns with an impressive roster of speakers from Vancouver’s creative, business and sustainability communities


It’s a meeting of creative, innovative minds. PechaKucha Night is celebrated around the world as an opportunity to get out from behind your computer screen and discover real people through real communication with real beer and real creative fun.


PechaKucha Night

September 30, 2010, 7:30 p.m.

Vogue Theatre

918 Granville St, Vancouver



Tickets are $11.00 plus tax, etc.


Unlike conferences, presentations and workshops where you go ready to be inspired and leave ready to fall asleep, PechaKucha Night is devised for the creative, short-attention-span type. Presenters share their ideas, works and passions through 20 slides, with 20 seconds to explain each image.


In the past, presentations have ranged from artists presenting the theory behind a particular collection of work, to the refurbishing of a Chinatown heritage building to a sustainable Vancouver, to touring with singer-songwriter Ben Harper, to preserving and protecting sharks in their habitat, and so very much beyond.


The next PechaKucha Night is at the Vogue Theatre tonight. The lineup of presenters chomping at the bit to share their works includes artistic directors, curators, social activists and vinyl aficionados.
