With the hustle and bustle of spring upon us and summer just around the corner, the Pecha Kucha Speaker series has rounded up the chaotic energy around us into a grab bag of speakers. With Grab Bag!, our 16th event, we’ve got 10 inspiring speakers presenting on a metric schwack of topics ranging from policing to film making to battling an evil monkey.

Pecha Kucha ̶ Japanese for “chit-chat” ̶ is a speaker series that originated in Tokyo in 2003. It’s since grown into an international series in more than 1,000 cities. Based on a simple format ̶ 20 images x 20 seconds ̶ presenters get a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds to tell their stories in an engaging slide-show format.

Held four times a year in Penticton, this regularly sold-out not-for-profit series presented by Cowork Penticton and with tunes by DJ Shakes brings together a diverse range of Okanagan thinkers, doers and story tellers who will grab your attention.

Doors open 6:00pm. First presentation at 7:00 p.m. Come early to get a seat.
