PechaKucha 20x20, originating from Japan is a storytelling format, where presenters narrate 20 images, each automatically advancing every 20 seconds, to a total of 6 min. and 40 sec. per presentation.

This is a casual event attracting creatives of all walks of life to meet, present, and share ideas. Expect to be see inspiring, personal, and sometimes political exposés, featuring what Ottawans are up to.

This year the theme is RE, where representatives from both architecture, design, and research communities will share their perspectives on Ottawa’s Resiliency, Recycling, Rebuilding, Reclaiming, Remembering, and more.

Join us at the Peter A. Herrndorf Place, located at the beautiful National Arts Centre.

Presentations will be preceded and followed by an informal gathering with drinks and light snacks.
