Connecting Transit, Walking and Public Space in Richmond – PechaKucha Night Richmond

VPSN volunteers Celia Chung and Karen Quinn Fung give a presentation describing the connection between enjoyable walking experiences and public transit, at the Pecha Kucha Night Richmond event on November 29, 2013. A video with the slide show and audio from the presentation is now available online.

This presentation was very enjoyable to put together, giving the presenters the chance to learn more about public art in Richmond. It was also an entertaining event to attend — the evening also featured presentations on public art at the Vancouver Airport; wayfinding on TransLink from Jeff Deby; and the work of Instant Coffee, an art collective who installed works on the #3 bus and at bus shelters on Main Street back in 2008. (See a picture below; you may recall them!)

Many thanks to the Richmond Public Art program for the invitation to participate in their PechaKucha night! The next volume of PechaKucha Night Richmond is happening on February 20, on the theme “What’s your story?” at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Richmond campus. It’s an excellent event and opportunity to see and support the awesome work of those innovating throughout the region.
