PechaKucha pops up at the Tobin for the 32nd round of San Anto’s take on the global arts and culture series.

The latest iteration features FL!GHT gallerist and Hot Wells guardian Justin Parr, head of collections and communication at the Linda Pace Foundation and mixed-media collage artist Kelly O’Connor (pictured), “plant-forward” chef and Pharm Table founder Elizabeth Johnson, Rivard Report co-founder and true crime author Robert Rivard, prolific poet and Texas State University professor Naomi Shihab Nye and cocinero and Southtown carnitas don Alex Paredes.

Early birds can enjoy a reception and “happiest hour” prior to the main event, in which each speaker will take the stage for just under seven minutes to wax poetic about their latest projects or passions.

$5, Wed Dec. 19, happy hour at 6:30pm, presentations at 7:30pm, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624,
