PechaKucha Night Markham Vol.18

07 February 2018

Connect with Markham’s creative communities at PechaKucha Markham on February 23, 2018! We know what you’re asking: What is a PechaKucha? PechaKucha (the Japanese word for chit-chat) is not your typical slide show: presenters share their ideas in 20 slides x 20 seconds each, no exceptions. 

The Markham Public Library and the Varley Art Gallery have partnered to host Markham’s PechaKucha nights, featuring artists, thinkers and innovators from Markham and beyond.

Admission is Pay What You Want so please give generously. $1 from each attendee's donation is contributed towards the Global PechaKucha Night fund to support the over 1000 cities holding these events around the world.

Grab a glass of beer or wine (cash bar), and enjoy complimentary appetizers and music. Stick around for the Post-PK party for more meeting and mingling!

Admission is Free!

Are space rentals causing your organization’s arts programs to take a back seat? Balancing in-house programs with space rentals can be a challenge, especially when these areas present competing priorities for arts organizations. In this webinar, we will cover ways in which organizations can strategize for high-demand rentals and space availability for their own programs, such as rehearsals, performances, workshops, etc…

This free webinar is relevant to any creative space manager looking for more information on ways to balance space availability and resources when it comes to in house programs.

There will be time for questions and discussion following the presentation.
