Drop by Arts Court the evening of Tuesday March 27 for the relaunch of Pecha Kucha Ottawa! Spins & Needles will be there chit chattering about our event and DIY-ing creative cities, alongside some of Ottawa’s creative types.
At this edition, we’ll be discussing a manifesto for creative city-making in Ottawa. We need to drag out the old thinking about “city-building” from a land-use urban engineering (top-down, centrally-planned) perspective to one of creative “city-making” distinguished as ground-level, organic, and surprisingly self-organized.
The long-awaited return of PKN Ottawa happens in style with a slate of inspiring presenters. Tickets available at the door only – no online purchase available for this event.

About Pecha Kucha: PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
