Pecha Kucha Night 17 - Designing Downtown

Edmonton's NextGen has hosted 16 Pecha Kucha Nights in Edmonton since 2007. On Saturday, October 5, 2013, at the Winspear Centre, this PKN will feature speakers from different regions and backgrounds that will challenge audiences to think in new ways about how we design and develop our city cores. 

Designing Downtown, one of the largest and richest citizen-driven conversations about urban cores in Canada, returns to Edmonton October 5, 2013. Edmonton’s downtown will come alive with an eclectic mix of events and interventions celebrating Designing Downtown’s vision, anchored by Pecha Kucha Night 17. For a full list of upcoming events, visit www.designingdowntown.ca. Designing Downtown is a movement to transform downtowns founded by Progress Unlimited, MADE, and Edmonton’s NextGen. Designing Downtown is a vehicle for inter-city exchange for partnerships that seek to enrich and advance the conversations and actions we take to shape downtowns as spaces for everyone. Designing Downtown is an experiment and exchange; an opportunity to create dialogue that celebrates & critiques; and a space to be a fixture in and designer of the urban experience.
