Pecha Kucha will bring the community together once more this weekend to explore a range of topics close to speakers’ hearts, having run in Dunsborough for several years.

Dunsborough’s was the first Pecha Kucha event to be run in regional WA, and the latest will be the town’s 27th instalment and will be held at Grounded Wholefoods for the first time.

Organiser Ninni Rosen-Tarrant said many events across the world moved around each time, but Pecha Kucha had been lucky to stay in one spot for so long, but it was now “nice to share the event around”.

Seven presenters with six presentations will take to the stage this weekend and will share their topics of interest.

Speakers show 20 slides for 20 seconds each, and will include Evelyn Lee, speaking about community food networks, and Dianne Moore, speaking about her work as a celebrant, while Gaia Boranga and Garry Dagg will speak about their time living in Tanzania.

Other presenters include Hayden Crawford, Jeanette deHaas, Melia Brent-White and Times journalist Sarah Ison.

Organisers Kali Dixon and Nathan Shanahan said the event was a chance to get a cross-section of the community together and see a range of topics and passions explored. The poster for this instalment was created by artist Cate Edwards with Our Lady of the Cape primary school printing the posters to distribute.

Pecha Kucha will be held at Grounded Wholefoods on Sunday from 6.30pm.
