PechaKucha Night in Winnipeg, Vol. 9
Quoted from the good folks at GDC Manitoba:
Let us just say here and now: this year is damned lucky it has an extra day in it, because GDC Manitoba is stuffing the calendar with so much eclectic creative goodness that 2012 won’t know what’s what. To wit, PechaKucha Night in Winnipeg, Vol. 9 – our decisive response to the February blahs.
It’s been far too long since we all convened. Join the Manitoba chapter of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada as we unveil and unravel our ninth PechaKucha Night in Winnipeg (and first of four events for 2012).
We’ve scritched and scoured the Winnipeg creative scene to construct a Frankenstein of awesomeness for another evening of inspiration. From designers and bloggers to photog-gers and polar bear experts, Vol. 9, guarantees good times – guaranteed.

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in 2003 as an event for designers to meet, network and to show their work in public. The concept has since gone global, with events happening in cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation (“chit chat”), it rests on a presentation format based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds – keeping presentations concise and moving at a rapid and entertaining pace.
See you there!
