Join the Yellowknife Farmers Market, NWT Recreation and Parks Association (NWTRPA), and the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (PWNHC) in the Museum Auditorium on Thursday, October 27, 2016, at 7.00pm for an evening all about local food!
We will have eight lively and creative presentations from a diverse cast of characters including harvester and hide tanner Peyton Straker, food photographer and eater Amy Lam, Food Rescue volunteer Mona Durkee, and waste manager Chris Vaughn. The presentations will explore different aspects of the Yellowknife food system: growing, harvesting, distribution, eating, waste management, and everything in between.
The PechaKucha night will also include a pop-up exhibit featuring images and objects of foodways past and present in Yellowknife.
Planning on coming to the event? We encourage you to bring a sample of your own canned goods, which you can retrieve at the end of the evening, to be part of the “We CAN Do It!” display.
A PechaKucha Night is a fun, laid-back gathering where people present and talk about a common topic using a digital slideshow presentation. 20 slides are displayed for 20 seconds each, resulting in a concise, fast-paced presentation with an emphasis on storytelling.
This free event has received support from GNWT Department of Industry, Tourism, and Investment. YK Food Matters: A PechaKucha Night is happening in conjunction with the Inspiring Commercial Agriculture Conference.
