PechaKucha Penticton Vol 16: Grab Bag

Japanese for “chit-chat,” Pecha Kucha originated in Tokyo in 2003 and has since grown into an international speaker series with events in more than 1,000 cities worldwide. Based on a simple format - 20 images x 20 seconds - presenters each get just 6 minutes and 40 seconds to share their story in an engaging and fast-paced slideshow format.

Held four times a year in Penticton, these regularly sold-out not-for-profit happenings bring together a diverse of range of Okanagan thinkers, doers and storytellers who can inspire us all to get back up again.

With the hustle and bustle of spring upon us, and summer just around the corner, we've rounded up all of that chaotic energy into a grab bag of speakers who'll be presenting on a metric shwack of topics from policing to building to film making and other awe-inspiring endeavors! 10 talks of 20 slides timed for 20 seconds each makes for a plethora of neatly packaged presentations!
