Pecha Kucha: Resident Artist Talk


Link to talk:

6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Crosstown Arts, East Atrium

Memphis, TN United States

Crosstown Arts summer session resident artists Lucy McKeon, Steve Bellin-Oka, Nick Peña, Pamela Allen, and Pete Hoffecker Mejía will present artist talks in the Pecha Kucha style.

The key to Pecha Kucha is the 20×20 format: all presenters show 20 slides for 20 seconds each, making each presentation concise and dynamic. If you’re wondering what “Pecha Kucha” means, it draws its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat.”

Pecha Kucha Nights began in Tokyo as an opportunity for artists, designers and architects to show samples of their work through a concise, timed presentation in a relaxed community setting. Over the past 10 years, these events have expanded to hundreds of cities across the globe, and often include a variety of community members sharing a wide array of interesting (and sometimes hilarious) topics.
