From policing to evil monkeys: Pecha Kucha speaker series returns

Pecha Kucha speaker series has a grab bag of speakers

With the hustle and bustle of spring upon us and summer just around the corner, the Pecha Kucha speaker series has rounded up the chaotic energy around us into a grab bag of speakers.

Listen to 10 inspiring speakers presenting on a wide-range of topics ranging from policing to film making to evil monkeys. Guest speakers include RCMP Supt. Ted De Jager, Paul Mend, Jen Vincent, Dave Man, Geoff Orr, Hannah Hartman, David Warriner, Tony Davis, Sara Turner and Katie Pease.

Pecha Kucha — Japanese for “chit-chat” — is a speaker series that originated in Tokyo in 2003. It’s since grown into an international series in more than 1,000 cities. Based on a simple format — 20 images in 20 seconds — presenters get six minutes and 40 seconds to tell their stories in an engaging slide-show format.

Held four times a year in Penticton, this regularly sold-out not-for-profit series brings together a diverse range of Okanagan thinkers, doers and storytellers who will grab your attention.

The Peach Kucha Vol. 16 Grab Bag! takes place at the Cannery Brewing (198 Ellis St.) on June 6. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the first presentation takes place at 7 p.m. Come early to get a seat. Tickets are $15 at Cannery Brewing.
