Artist and activist Kal Barteski is a notable figure in the arts scene in Winnipeg who is most famously known for her playful script work and polar bear art. She calls herself a "polar bear artist", and rightfully so as she's successfully spread her work throughout the city and beyond. Here in her PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk, Kal talks about polar bears (of course), why they're important, and what you can learn from them. She also talks about her work and her initiatives not only in Winnipeg but in Churchill, Manitoba, the polar bear capital of the world.

Kal's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 36, on November 22 2018, at the Park Theatre.
