Pecha Kucha returning soon

The 11th edition of Pecha Kucha Penticton takes place next week at Cannery Brewing, presenting a series of fascinating and educational Okanagan tales.

Featuring 10 speakers on March 15, the theme of the night is Stories Between Two Lakes.

Organizer Tony Davis says Penticton is one of just two cities in the world situated between two lakes.

“And boy, do we have stories and experiences to share in this little town sandwiched between Okanagan and Skaha lakes. At just 42 square kilometers in size, Penticton’s population punches well above its weight when it comes to inventiveness, creativity, character and people who have had, well, experiences that are just plain weird.”

Amongst the speakers are: Dynise Brisson of the Gitxsan Nation, a writer, poet and a classically trained dancer; wine, food and tourism writer Allison Markin, the internet and marketing nerd behind  “All She Wrote; and Allan Clarke, who in just 18 months went from landlubber to a sailor who competed in some 60 yacht races and sailed across the Pacific Ocean.

Pecha Kucha — Japanese for “chit-chat” — originated in Tokyo in 2003 and has grown into an international series in more than 1,000 cities. Using 20 images for 20 seconds each, presenters get six minutes and 40 seconds to engage the audience.

The event is held four times a year in Penticton and regularly sells out.

The event takes place March 15 at Cannery Brewing. Doors at 6 p.m. Speakers starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the brewery or Cowork Penticton.
