When: Tue., Feb. 24, 6-10 p.m. 2015
Launched by two Tokyo-based architects in 2003 and now a global phenomenon playing out in 700 cities, PechaKucha (Japanese for “chit chat”) follows a simple premise: creative professionals show 20 slides for 20 seconds each during presentations lasting six minutes and 40 seconds. The San Antonio chapter brings together eclectic crowds for programs one might liken to TedX on speed. Emceed by Emmy-winning news anchor Randy Beamer, Volume 17 rounds up a wild mix that runs the gamut from a competitive Scrabble player to a home inspector. Happy hour begins at 6:30pm, presentations at 7:30pm.
