Pecha Kucha Winnipeg Vol. 13

On March 7, GDC Manitoba’s 13th installment of PechaKucha Winnipeg took place at the Park Theatre. We are all in agreement that this may have been one of the best ones yet! Although to be honest, we probably say that every time. Thursday night’s line-up included Matt Henderson (Teacher and Activist), Andrew Yankiwski (Partner, Precursor Productions), Blair Helgason (Designer), Brian Kelcey (Writer, Speaker and Policy Consultant), John Johnston (Freelance Photographer), Nicole Barry (Co-Founder, Half Pints Brewery), a PKN video by Tokyo presenter Joseph Tame called “The Art of Running“, Wendy Sawatzky (Artist), Matt Brooks (Graphic Design, RRC Student), Howard Gurevich (Owner, Gurevich Fine Art), Joseph Ranseth (Purpose-Driven Marketer) and Erin Propp & Larry Roy (Singer/Songwriter).

I did this for a previous PechaKucha Winnipeg, but I find it’s a pretty great way to share the spirit of the evening, so… without further ado, here is Volume 13’s mashup (in order of presenters).

We have to experience things to have literacy in them. Combine principles of structure with organic creativity. Could I take the optical proportions of type and translate them into a chair? Every law tells us a story about the place where the law is made. It’s like having a viewfinder permanently attached to my eye. I’m passionate about brewery life. My shoes, they lost their soles! 3D art is best when it’s both fascinating and horrifying. To see more of ‘The Impossible Project’, come to the RRC graphic design open house on May 1/2. The untrained mind creates suffering wherever it goes. Change happens in two ways, through discipline and disposition. I live my life alongside my work rather than working my life away.
