About PechaKucha

PechaKucha is the art of concise presentations. The concept began in 2003, with a group of Japanese architects who wished to share their creative projects with one another without having to sit through long, rambling lectures. Each PechaKucha presentation is led by a storyteller who provides 20 visual images, shown for 20 seconds each, all together creating a six minute and forty second story.  A dozen storytellers are then gathered together around a central theme and showcased in one powerful evening through PechaKucha Nights. PechaKucha exists in over 800 host cities around the world, and Prince George is one of them.

Our local group is organized by Andrew Kurjata, Steph St. Laurent, Kathel Angelski and Jillian Merrick. They combine their storytelling, story-recording, and community-building talents to produce the event, which is 100% volunteer driven with support from Community Futures Fraser Fort George.

You may be unfamiliar with the PechaKucha format, but there are many resources available online to help you create a presentation. Browse the PechaKucha site to see examples of past presentations. Check out this detailed guide for hands-on instruction.  There are even PechaKucha presentations about making PechaKucha presentations. If you are struggling with the format, you can always contact our organizers directly for help. We have local volunteers willing to mentor and assist you in sharing your great story.

The creative and ever-evolving nature of the local group has established a few of their own traditions for the event. Firstly, everyone has a story to tell, and anyone can be a storyteller, as long as they have the courage and commitment to share their story in PechaKucha style. Secondly, the events will always be as barrier-free as possible. Audience participation is absolutely free, all ages are welcome to participate, and the group is always seeking accessible stages and seating to open up participation to all members of the community. Lastly, the event is always changing. Each event will feature a new theme, a new venue, a new storyteller roster, and a new artist to design the event poster.

PechaKucha Nights are a great way are a great way for the community to support and participate in the ancient tradition of storyteller in a modern, creative and barrier free format.

Cyclist by necessity Andrew Kurjata speaks about the danger of sharing space in a city full of giant metal road-roving vehicles.

In “How Riding a Bike Taught Me about Prejudice” from PKN Prince George Vol. 1, he shows us how his run-ins with automobiles on the road have given him a tiny slice of insight as to what it means to be discriminated.
