Some friends and I went to the Special Edition PechaKucha Volume: 17 West Coast Modernism in partnership with the West Vancouver Museum last night. It was great! Now I just have to make enough money to buy a West Coast Modernism home! Easy peasy.
I really enjoyed each speaker, but found John Fulker, an architectural photographer, to be the most interesting.
A little "about" from their webpage
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation ("chit chat"), it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds.
It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
Not too sure when the next night is for Vancouver, but keep your eyes peeled! They tend to sell out VERY fast!
