The third in a series of four PechKucha Nights in Sechelt will be presented next Friday, Feb. 21, at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre.

Doors at 7:30, show at 8 p.m. Admission is $10 at the door.

A PechaKucha Night entails a series of visual vignettes with a brief story, rant, song or appeal, or perhaps a memorial, fable or spoof. Eleven presenters show 20 images each, with 20 seconds per image to weave their story. The images are automatically projected and wait for no one.

Presenters are: Don Robb and Crystal Boeur, developing a community farm; Agnetta Newman, the Yangtze River; Junco Jan, weird thing; Nicolas Meyer, wholesome versus wholesale; Stacy and Soleila, rockin' on the Sunshine Coast; Scott Avery, mindful community resilience from diversity; John Field, a very good year for mushrooms; Andrew Scott, Ephemera; Heather Conn, an El Camino pilgrimage; Gerardo Avila, life of a physical comedian; and Clint and Irene Davy, caring for distressed wildlife.

Intermission includes a special presentation of the Gillian Lowndes Award for long-standing achievement, innovation and recent growth to Steve Wright and, of course, the ever-popular treats by Trish.

The 20 by 20 concept was started by a group of Japanese architects in 2003 and has now spread to 700 cities and towns around the globe. These events are organized and presented by artists Anna Banana and Paul Clancy and the Sunshine Coast Arts Council.
