Courtesy of PechaKucha San Antonio
PechaKucha, for the uninitiated, is a lecture format (the phrase means “chit-chat” in Japan, where the concept originated) that invites speakers to prepare a six-minute-and-40-second talk, with a visual component that includes 20 images, each of which can be displayed for only 20 seconds. The unique format forces presenters to be especially deliberate and purposeful about all their choices, making for a fast-paced and highly engaging experience for attendees.
San Antonio’s PechaKucha chapter, now in its 29th quarterly incarnation, has a knack for bringing together exciting and diverse groups for presentations on an eclectic mix of topics. Presenters for PechaKucha Vol. 29 are Karina Bharne (interim executive director of the San Antonio Symphony), Bethany Bohall (public arts administrator/innovator), Garrett T. Capps (musician/songwriter), Catherine Cisneros (artistic director of URBAN-15), Lisa Hurst (applied improv facilitator), Frances Limoncelli (managing artistic director of Magik Theatre), Carlos Maestas (Key Ideas founder) and Alexei Wood (photojournalist).
