The Wellingtonista

Random stuff about Wellington since 2005

Pecha Kucha 9

by Robyn on November 17, 2010 in Events

This Monday is another Pecha Kucha Night, where a fine line-up of creative people present short talks on topics they love.

But this time it’s a Wellingtonista special! We have two of the W’ista posse (Robyn* and Dan) giving talks. But we’re also excited about Leimomi Oakes’s talk on royal undies, Mike Brown’s exploration of why Webstock is so awesome, and Mike Dickison’s scientific look at Big Bird.

Actually, the whole line-up looks awesome:

Leimomi Oakes // textile and fashion historian / seamstress / www.thedreamstress.com // the queen’s underwear: how an un/dress caused a revolution (in more ways than one)

Robyn used to live in Wellington, but now divides her time between coastal Waikato and wherever. She can be found over at her long-running blog, watching too many music videos, or generally mucking around on the internet.
