Pecha Kusha Night #8 in Calgary

I am super excited and honoured that Calgary Arts Development (CADA) have asked my to present at the up coming PechKucha Calgary night. The theme is "Inspire" and I hope that I will......inspire. If you are free on Monday I say pop down to the Grand and find out how I can connect these pictures as well as 17 others.

Devised in Tokyo in 2003, PechaKucha Nights are now taking place in over 400 cities around the world. Drawing their name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat," PechaKucha Nights are based on a simple presentation format: speakers present 20 slides each, for only 20 seconds per slide. It's a format that makes presentations concise and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
Please join us for Calgary's contribution to the global PechaKucha Night fundraiser for Japan.
