PechaKucha Wpg, Vol. 18 (recap)

By May 23, 2014Blog, Culture, GDC


Last night (May 22), GDC Manitoba’s 18th installment of PechaKucha Winnipeg took place at the Park Theatre. The speakers proved to be an eclectic mix of thought-provoking and inspiring PechaKucha goodness, and I can’t wait for Vol. 19 so I can get another taste!

Thursday night’s line-up included Kyle Geske (Instructor, RRC), Dougald Lamont (Owner, Jetpack Media), Scott Marohn (Product Development, Winnipeg Airport Authority), Katie Schewe & Geoff Ripat (Spark), Dwayne Sandall (Race Director, Trail Run Manitoba), Rodger Lepinsky (Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association), Nina Logan (Volunteer, Stephen Lewis Foundation), Jack Rach (DJ), Jamie Isfeld (New Media Developer, Artist) and Dan Goldberg (Graphic Designer, Comedian).

I’ve gotten in the habit of doing PechaKucha mash-ups, so here is Volume 18’s, in order of presenters:

Government accountability requires citizen accountability. Democracy gives us the chance to say “I’m worth more than you think”. You can think of me as the travel santa… but apparently we’ve all been bad. The most successful matches are made when organizations identify the need. I’d been running for a 1000 days in a row, so I thought, let’s run a 50k for fun. I hope your next vehicle will plug in. We work hard to make this happen—grandmothers and grandchildren, happy and healthy. I know you’ve had a couple of DJs present before, but I have one thing that they don’t, and that’s offspring. Citizen journalism requires a disconnect from self-focus. That’s what I want to avoid… rejection (as a graphic designer or as a comedian).
