Tonight! Timed Chit-Chat at Blue Star

PKNPechaKucha (Japanese for “chit-chat”) is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (six minutes and 40 seconds total for each presenter). The format was devised in 2003 by the Tokyo-based Klein Dytham Architecture firm (they even registered “PechuKucha” as a tradename!), to allow young designers to meet, show their work, and exchange ideas. PechaKucha Nights (PKNs) have caught on and are now held in hundreds of cities worldwide.

San Antonio is one of those cities where PKNs are popular and Blue Star Contemporary will be hosting PechaKucha San Antonio Volume 13 tonight, February 25. Happy hour begins at 6:30 pm; presentations start at 7:30 pm. Here is tonight’s lineup:
