LAND MATTERS- Exploring how we connect to our land through people, places, presence and prospects. 

At PechaKucha Night Nanaimo Vol.6, presenters will explore how the land we live on plays a vital role in our relationships with others, how we connect to a sense of place, the presence we create, and how we look towards our future. How does our land stimulate community, encourage identity, and create meaningful context.

Using Nanaimo as a case study, inspiration, or reference, speakers will share experiences and insights that have influenced their practice.
