PechaKucha returns to Richmond May 2

Richmond's next PechaKucha Night promises another creative and thought-provoking evening, hosted by Britannia Shipyards.

Ten speakers will present for about seven minutes each on the theme of Secrets of the Fraser. Speakers at this sixth PechaKucha Night are people with varying connections to the Fraser River, including artists and environmental professionals.

Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of chit chat, PechaKucha is a presentation format where speakers present 20 images and tell their stories as the photos advance every 20 seconds.

The event, presented by the city, starts at 6:30 p.m. inside the Chinese Bunkhouse at Britannia, 5180 Westwater Dr. Admission is free.
