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. Speaker Boxing returns to a pack some fun punches.
The Markham Public Library and the Varley Art Gallery have partnered to host Markham’s PechaKucha nights, featuring 8 artists, thinkers and innovators from Markham and beyond. The event is the official launch to Culture Days in Markham and a celebration for Markham Reads.
Culture Days is a non-profit organization that raises the awareness, accessibility, and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.
Markham Reads is an annual celebration that gets everyone in Markham reading (and discussing!) the same book. Pick up your copy (announced September 6th) and join us for some amazing workshops and events throughout October.
Admission is Pay What You Want so please give generously!
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 local fine food stores and restaurants.
