PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 40

All Ages
PechaKucha invites local creative and creative-adjacent people to speak on whatever they want in 20 slides showing only for 20 seconds each.

he 40th volume of PechaKucha Night Winnipeg is going to be big — XL even! In Roman numerals, the number 40 translates to XL, and as such we're going to make this volume a little more EXTRA. On November 28, we're going to have inspiring creative people take the Park Theatre stage as usual, but this time we're turning it up a notch just slightly to make PKN WPG 40 extra bold, extra fun, and extra colourful. Join us for the last PechaKucha Night Winnipeg of this year to watch a strong group of speakers share their stories and celebrate what makes our city so vibrant!

Doors open as usual at 7:30 PM, and the show starts at 8:00 PM.

Admission is pay-what-you-want, but we suggest $10. Tickets and registration are not required, but feel free to register to let us know you’re going!

PechaKucha is a presentation format invented by Tokyo-based firm Klein Dytham Architecture in 2003. At every event, speakers are given 20 slides to talk about whatever they like, but each slide advances automatically after only 20 seconds. This 20x20 format gives each speaker a total time of six minutes and forty seconds. PechaKucha Night has over 1200 city chapters all over the world.

PechaKucha Night Winnipeg was established by the Graphic Designers of Canada in 2010. Each PechaKucha Night – or PKN – is a fun, and informal evening where creative and inspiring Winnipeggers talk about their ideas, stories, experiences, or work. PKN Winnipeg is held quarterly and usually at the Park Theatre.



This year's posters are designed by Andrew Boardman. This volume's poster was also designed in part by his daughter, Maeve Boardman.
