PechaKucha is a presentation on style that challenges the presenter to make a very short presentation using 20 images each for 20 seconds. An event on 5 October 2017 invited western Sydney artists to hear inspiring presentations, including an overview of the Westmead Redevelopment’s Arts and Culture Strategy development.

The workshop was held in the newly opened Westmead Education and Conference Centre (WECC) level 1 space, called the huddle.

Speakers were:

  • Matt Poll, Aboriginal curator, The University of Sydney Museums, who discussed Aboriginal design principles.
  • Louise McKenzie, from HARC and UNSW, who discussed arts, culture and landscape.
  • Martha Jabour, from Cumberland Council, who talked about the arts and place-making in Wentworth.
  • Marily Cintra, Westmead Redevelopment arts and culture consultant, who discussed the consultation underway.
  • Marily Cintra said, “PechaKucha is a fun way to help presenters think about how they can communicate their messages in new, fun, creative and disruptive ways. The evening got the creative juices flowing and the artist’s who attended, shared a lot of ideas for arts and culture programs and opportunities at Westmead."
