Next City Talks

A local public figure speaker event utilizing the 10x20x20 concept. It's based on "Pecha Kucha" http://www.pecha-kucha.org/presentations/ which is an international speaker series that started in Tokyo and has spread around the world. The format is 10 consecutive presenters; who each show 20 images; each image is automatically timed for 20 seconds (6 minutes 40 seconds total). There's no question period - just on to the next presenter. The condensed, rapid-fire format is appealing in that you get a lots of different viewpoint is a condensed evening of discussion. Presentations will ponder a theme in their presentations; What is Next for Winnipeg as a city? A moderator will introduce each presenter and open up the floor for discussion to the audience afterwards. NEXT CITY TALKS IS 10 presentations of 20 slides, each up for 20 seconds, describing a fun, engaging, exciting, positive, funny, story, perspective, opinion, or projection of Winnipeg.
