Discover creative communities, 20 seconds at a time

You’re invited to attend an event that links the City of Markham’s creative communities 20 seconds at a time.

PechaKucha Markham brings together artists, innovators, students and entrepreneurs from across York Region to share their projects, experiences, struggles and successes in 20 slides x 20 seconds each.

PechaKucha is the Japanese word for chit-chat. The first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network and show their work in public. Events are now held in more than 1,000 cities across the globe.

The Markham Public Library and the Varley Art Gallery have teamed up to host Markham’s PechaKucha nights. PechaKucha Night Markham Vol. 23 will be held Friday, Sept. 27 from 7:30 to 10 p.m., followed by networking and mingling, at Varley Art Gallery at 216 Main St., Unionville.

Admission is pay-what-you-want, with $1 from each attendee’s donation contributed towards the Global PechaKucha Night fund to support the cities holding these events. There will be a cash bar and complimentary appetizers and music. Learn more and purchase tickets at
