Creativity Explored With Pecha Kucha

By April 15, 2014Arts

Submitted. The Fraser Valley is ever growing as a hub for creativity and innovative thinking. Visionaries at creative firms such as Relevention, domain7 and Jelly Marketing are pushing the envelope to share stories and use digital platforms in fresh and inventive ways.

In order to foster creative engagement, Jelly Marketing, The Reach and UFV’s design department are hosting Pecha Kucha Night — an evening to celebrate artistic innovation with all the creatives and designers of the Fraser Valley.

Pecha Kucha Night will take place on April 24, 2014 from 7:30-9:00pm at The Reach Gallery Museum. The evening is a fun and informal hour and a half of culture, ideas, creativity, passion and opinions. It’s a place for innovators to share their thoughts, gather as a creative community and have a good time.

What is PechaKucha?

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.

Pecha Kucha Night is also complimented with a reception from 5:00-7:00pm featuring the University of the Fraser Valley’s Graphic + Digital Design (GDD) inaugural portfolio show, with appetizers and drinks. Find out more at
