Pecha Kucha & Alberta Culture Days


Pecha Kucha Nights are informal, relaxed ways for creative, passionate people to come together and share their ideas, works or thoughts. Presenters follow a very relaxed format by showing 20 images for 20 seconds each. The first Pecha Kucha night was held in Japan in 2003 and quickly spread across the world. PKN Medicine Hat is part of that global network. Medalta is proud to partner with them to present Volume 8 during Alberta Culture Days!
