It's the tenth edition of PechaKucha Night in Winnipeg, and it's coming soon. Real soon. And to celebrate our tin/aluminum anniversary of the peachy perfection of PechaKucha in this fair city, GDC Manitoba is hosting PKNX on the longest day of the year: June 21, the start of summer.
Come join the Manitoba chapter of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada on the first day of summer as we launch the tenth fantastic edition of PechaKucha Night in Winnipeg.

With nine previous events and over 100 incredible speakers taking to the stage, PKNX is set to continue this great GDC Manitoba tradition into the double digits. We invite you to see what all the fuss is about.

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in 2003 as an event for designers to meet, network and to show their work in public. The concept has since gone global, with events happening in cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation ("chit chat"), it rests on a presentation format based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds – keeping presentations concise and moving at a rapid and entertaining pace.
