Final PechaKucha Night Richmond features Homegrown Inspiration
22 November 2016
The final PechaKucha Night in Richmond, Homegrown Inspiration, Volume 16, will be held at the Richmond Cultural Centre on Thursday, November 24, 2016.
Homegrown Inspiration will celebrate the last four years of the Richmond PechaKucha Night program, with a showcase of local talent featuring inspiring PechaKucha presentations. Each presenter shows 20 images, each for 20 seconds while sharing thought-provoking ideas and stories related to each image.
The evening will celebrate artists, visionaries, leaders, makers, risk takers, philosophers, and everyday individuals, who inspire others, enrich Richmond, enhance the vibrancy of their communities and make a difference in the world.
Be inspired by Richmond’s own change makers, who will entertain and present at Homegrown Inspiration. Presenters include Carling Jackson and Chef Ian Lai who impact the lives of others, locally, regionally and globally. Humanitarian and artist Carling Jackson uses her artwork as a medium to raise awareness and fight injustice around the world. Chef Ian Lai is a local food securities educator and founder of the Richmond Schoolyard Society, a non-profit urban agriculture project for elementary school children.
