What is PechaKucha, you might ask?

It is a fast-paced presentation style that consists of showing 20 slides for 20 seconds each, enabling multi-speaker events to be concise yet informative, while enhancing both the visual and oral aspects of presentations.

PechaKucha first originated in Tokyo as a way for architects to share their designs and ideas, and has continued to focus on highlighting the creativity of its presenters.

On June 13, Vancouver’s Vogue Theatre is hosting PechaKucha Night Vancouver Vol. 28, with the theme of Vancouver Around the World.  The evening will focus on individuals from Vancouver who have gone on to change the world.

Among these fascinating individuals is Compassionate Eye Foundation’s own Robert Kent, who founded CEF in 2005. This is the perfect opportunity for Vancouverites to learn about CEF and its mission from the founder himself.

This event in particular, is an impactful way to spread the message of CEF. PechaKucha places a strong emphasis on visual art and the importance of ideas in conveying a message. These are values shared by CEF: highlighting the talent of photographers and other creative individuals, while giving back.

This particular PechaKucha Night’s theme, Vancouver Around the World, also fits with CEF -- after originating in Vancouver, CEF has gone on to impact people all over the globe, from South America to Africa to Asia. Vancouver still remains a central location for much of CEF’s activity, including photo shoots, fundraising events, and, of course, this PechaKucha Night.

So come out and meet Robert in-person, and learn about Vancouverites who have gone on to change the world--we look forward to seeing you there!

Date: June 13, 2013 Time: Doors at 6:30pm, event starts at 7:30pm Location: Vogue Theatre, 918 Granville Street, Vancouver, BC
