Here is a quote from PechaKucha.com “
What is PechaKucha?
“PechaKucha’s 20×20 presentation format shows your 20 chosen images, each for 20 seconds. In other words, you’ve got 400 seconds to tell your story, with visuals guiding the way. PechaKucha means “chit chat” in Japanese. This creative outlet began as nighttime get-togethers in Tokyo in 2003 by two renowned architects. Since then, three million people have attended PechaKucha events worldwide.” (quote from pechakucha.com)

“The Exposure Photography Festival is a registered non-profit society established in 2004. Exposure is run by an enthusiastic Board of Directors who are devoted to photography. The festival’s mission is to generate participation in photographic image making and to engage practitioners, photo professionals, and audiences in dialogue about the medium, its past, present and future. Like photography itself, Exposure embraces a broad audience, including beginners and experienced image makers, amateurs and professionals, and photographers of all ages and interest levels. Exposure seeks to expand awareness, to educate, inform, and delight.
2020 will be the 16th year of Alberta’s photography festival. The Festival hosts over 30,000 attendees annually. Most events and activities are free and open to the public. The Board of Directors looks forward to welcoming the community to an exciting and inspiring festival, celebrating photography and photographers from near and far.”
