About Pecha Kucha
Pecha Kucha Penticton is inhaling deeply as we present the 13th installment of our popular speaker series.
Now that the smoke has cleared from the Okanagan Valley, Pecha Kucha: The “Fresh Air: Fresh Perspectives,” opens our eyes to where Penticton is heading as a community. What’s happening with housing? Crime? How is Penticton General Hospital changing after construction is finished? Why the heck are excavators digging up Penticton Creek? We’ll illuminate these and more issues of concern to Pentictonites.
So join us for a breath of fresh air and get a glimpse of the future with some of the most interesting voices in our community, including RCMP Inspector Ted De Jager; Bryn White, chair of the Penticton Creek Association; urban cycling activist Matt Hopkins; Maggie Van Emmerik, coordinator of Unity House Clubhouse and Eric Corneau, regional dean of Okanagan College in Penticton.
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 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 brings together a diverse range of Okanagan thinkers and doers.
