Jane speaks on Cause+Affect, PechaKucha, FUEL and the culture of Vancouver
Just a few days before our very first FUEL event, Jane sat down with Mike Eckford of The Shift on CKNW
Just a few days before our very first FUEL event, Jane sat down with Mike Eckford of The Shift on CKNW to talk about her work at Cause+Affect, the production of PechaKucha Night, the future of FUEL and the culture of Vancouver.
On Vancouver as a project:
“When we came to Vancouver [from London, England] we saw it as a blank canvas of opportunity. I think a lot of the initiatives and work that we’ve done and the clients we’ve worked with … .the work we’ve done is very much based on the idea that we can create the society we want to live in. We’ve almost felt that Vancouver is a project in itself”
On FUEL and how it differs from PechaKucha Night:
“FUEL is a forum to examine, as a society, where do we want to go and how are we going to get there? We’re bringing together not only local leaders and innovators but also global innovators to Vancouver and I think that’s very different from PechaKucha, which is local for local. This is now connecting Vancouver to the rest of the world.”
FUEL is an experiment in crowd-sourced innovation, intense dialogue and the collision of ideas from four of Vancouver’s fastest growing business sectors.
