The next installment of the popular Pecha Kucha Night Abbotsford on Feb. 12 has 16 exciting topics, engaging exhibits by UFV Graphic and Digital Design students and a fundraising Instagram contest.

What it doesn’t have is a lot of tickets left.

Heading into its fifth installment, this season’s must-see Fraser Valley interactive art and lecture event features a record number of presenters ranging from digital artists to social media experts, branding creative-types, creative leaders, entrepreneurs and more. Each will present 20 slides shown for exactly 20 seconds.

Sponsored by UFV, Jelly Marketing, and The Reach Gallery Museum, February’s event, called Paradigm, begins at 5 p.m. with a gala reception in UFV’s S’eliyemetaxwtexw Art Gallery (B136) featuring branding projects and typography portraits created by select first- and second-year students.

Concurrently, the gallery will also feature winners of the program’s Instagram contest. Submitted on the theme of expressing love of something, shortlisted images will be printed and auctioned, with proceeds benefitting the design graduating portfolio exhibit. Submissions are accepted until Feb. 5. To enter, share your photo on Instagram using #PKAbbotsford and tag @PKFraserValley.

The Pecha Kucha itself starts just down the hall at 6:30 p.m. in UFV’s lecture theatre, Room B101.

For more information, or to try landing a ticket for a suggested donation of $10, visit PechaKucha.ca. Anyone interested in presenting at the next Pecha Kucha night (April 29 at Highstreet) is encouraged to contact Jager at karin.jager@ufv.ca.Latest Pecha Kucha Abbotsford set for Feb. 12 at UFV
