Pecha Kucha speaker series returns to Cannery Brewing

The speakers will share character building experiences to begin Pecha Kucha’s sixth year in Penticton

The first Pecha Kucha speaker series of 2020 will be held March 5 at Cannery Brewing.

For the 19th volume in Penticton, the theme of the night is creating character.

Held four times a year in Penticton, this not-for-profit speaker series brings together a diverse range of Okanagan thinkers, storytellers, and community leaders.

The speakers for this series have a wide variety of character-building experiences to share, from a former background actor who ticked off Kevin Costner to a fish biologist working to save sockeye.

Each of the presenters will be taking turns speaking alongside photo slides in the Pecha Kucha’s 20 x 20 format.

Entering its sixth year, Pecha Kucha Penticton has sold out every talk, and has been hosted at Cannery Brewing since 2015.

The full list of presenters for the upcoming speaker series have yet to be announced.

The series is presented by Cowork Penticton, and music for the evening is provided by DJ Shakes.

Doors open at Cannery Brewing at 6 p.m. and the first presentation begins at 7. Tickets are available in person at Cannery Brewing and will be available online soon.
