We have the means to Participate: A citizens take back PechaKucha Night.

PechaKucha Night is delighted to be joining the Festa 2016 line up. The theme for Festa is We have the Means, and the festival line-up features citizen-initiated urban regeneration and sustainability through the reuse of waste materials in design.

For our PechaKucha Night we have the means to take back- we are taking over the foyer of the Civic Building (CCC offices) and showcasing citizens of Christchurch (and beyond) and how they have are using the resources around them to participate in our community.
