What’s the big deal?
Design shapes the world around us. It is influenced by our community and in turn influences all aspects of our lives, how we live, work and play. The Graphic + Digital Design students at UFV want to share that value of design. Be inspired and entertained by the people shaping and influencing our community with an evening featuring PechaKucha talks, good food and drinks, great people and some classic holiday cheer. The event supports student professional development, cultural enrichment and raises funds for our graduation show. Help fund our launch into the industry and have a fun evening at the same time!
Powered by PechaKucha events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in 2003 as an event for designers to meet, network and to show their work in public. The concept has since gone global, with events happening in cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation (“chit chat”), it rests on a presentation format based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds – keeping presentations concise and moving at a rapid and entertaining pace.
Featuring the movers and shakers from local creative industries, businesses, and urban planning. Each presentation is 20 images for 20 seconds each. Be prepared for fast-paced action and great stories!
Good cheer, great food and even better company; something for all tastes. Meet the UFV Graphic + Digital Design students and mingle with friends and family with our cash bar and snacks!
We’re launching our beautifully designed cookbook, Appetite for Design. Many other cool, unique gifts and raffle prizes guarantee you’ll find something for everybody on your list.
