@ Varley Art Gallery

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 in partnership with the Markham Arts Council have partnered to host Markham’s PechaKucha nights, featuring 8 artists, thinkers and innovators from Markham and beyond. Added bonus: the evening will include a PK style gallery tour of Alma: The Life and Art of Alma Duncan– 20 works of art explained in 20 seconds each.

Admission is free.

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!

Refreshments provided by Ambiyan, Mr. Black Coffee, Five Lamps Chophouse and Tavern, Planeta Mexico Markham and Whole Foods Market Unionville
