The 10th anniversary of VIU's World Center for Leisure Excellence was celebrated on November 29, with a special edition of PechaKucha Nanaimo with the theme "Putting Leisure on the Map". The event was held at Vancouver Island University and brought together VIU representatives, faculty members, visiting scholars, students, alumni, and community members on an evening filled with fun and inspiring stories related to leisure research and practice.

Exploring the topic Gift and Exchange, the PechaKucha Night Nanaimo Vol.8 that took place at VIU last Friday, March 29, was a true gift for all the participants. Six speakers shared their stories with an attentive audience in a very enjoyable venue, the VIU Trades Discovery Centre. The public was welcomed by volunteer students and could enjoy a social gathering before the presentations, with live music played by Mike Bauche, a welcome drink, and appetizers.
