A community of inspiration

Produced by Better Mousetrap Marketing, the first Pecha Kucha Night will be held Nov. 6 at the Vancouver Island Visitor Centre at 6 p.m.

Tired of long-winded presentations?

Join the fast-paced idea-sharing forum of Pecha Kucha, coming to the Comox Valley!

Produced by Better Mousetrap Marketing, the first Pecha Kucha Night (PKN) will be held Nov. 6 at the Vancouver Island Visitor Centre at 6 p.m.

What is Pecha Kucha? It’s a community of inspiration, fuelled by ideas shared with a 20×20 presentation style. Presenters show 20 images for 20 seconds per image. Slides advance automatically, and presenters speak as the images are displayed.

PKN presentations can be about anything and can be done by anyone from architects to artists, designers to doctors and everyone in between.

With eight to 10 presenters at each event, the atmosphere is fun

and informal and the goal is to inspire, express and share — all in six minutes and 40 seconds!

Enjoy refreshments and some entertainment for a preliminary meet and greet, then sit back to enjoy some local food for thought.

Pecha Kucha originated in Tokyo in 2003. Since then, nearly 700 cities worldwide are hosting PKNs.

The Comox Valley will now be one more place where people can share their ideas with this creative forum. Those who want to share a presentation at an event must pre-register as a presenter.

Presentations are recorded and shared with the online Pecha

Kucha community. You can purchase tickets and find out about future PKN events at www.pechakuchacomoxvalley.ca.
