As part of the Culture Days celebration taking place next weekend, the City is hosting a third PechaKucha Night at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept.30, at The Streaming Café.

Residents are encouraged to attend the free evening of presentations where creative people from various backgrounds including architects, artists, chefs, curators, gardeners, filmmakers, designers, dancers and collectors share their ideas and passion in a visual format.

“PechaKucha Nights are designed to get people talking,” says Cultural Services manager Sandra Kochan, “The variety of presentations is always inspiring and we are looking forward to another exciting evening. Hosting this month’s event at the Streaming Café provides the perfect setting and is a great partnership – the café is a strong supporter of local culture.”

PechaKucha Nights are now held in more than 400 cities around the world after originating in Tokyo in 2003. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat,” the presentation format is based on a simple idea: 20 images each of which are shown for 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise and keeps the night moving at a rapid pace.

Culture Days will be held Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 at various sites throughout the city. Culture Days is a collaborative, grassroots movement to raise awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of the community.

The inaugural Culture Days was held in September 2010 in more than 700 Canadian cities and towns. The celebration represents the largest-ever collective public participation campaign undertaken by the arts and cultural community in Canada.
