VOL 20

September 28, 2018
@ Markham Village Library

Connect with Markham’s creative communities at PechaKucha Markham! We know what you’re asking: What is a PechaKucha? PechaKucha (the Japanese word for chit-chat) is not your typical slide show: presenters share their ideas in 20 slides x 20 seconds each, no exceptions.

The Markham Public Library and the Varley Art Gallery have partnered to host Markham’s PechaKucha nights, featuring artists, thinkers and innovators from Markham and beyond. The event is the official launch to Culture Days in Markham. 

Culture Days is a non-profit organization that raises the awareness, accessibility, and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. 

Tickets available Sept. 1 at and will sell out fast!

Admission is Pay What You Want so please give generously. $1 from each attendee's donation is contributed towards the Global PechaKucha Night fund to support the over 900 cities holding these events around the world. 

Grab a glass of beer or wine (cash bar), and enjoy complimentary appetizers and music. Stick around for the Post-PK party for more meeting and mingling!
