PechaKucha 28, presented by the Charleston Arts Festival, will take over the Charleston Music Hall on Tuesday, featuring some of the top creative and entrepreneurial minds in the local community. “PechaKucha” is Japanese for “chit-chat” and revolves around keeping things brief: each presenter exhibits 20 slides shown for 20 seconds each. A collaborative “show-and-tell,” if you will.
Past PechaKucha events have focused on music and the culinary arts, and this year’s lineup is a diverse mix of area folks in the genres of arts, design, business and more. Scheduled presenters include The Post and Courier’s food editor and chief critic Hanna Raskin, hip-hop/R&B artists Benjamin Starr and Manny Houston (aka Alan Fame), Mary Beth Natajaran of Charleston Jazz, Katie Zimmerman, executive director with Charleston Moves, Dance Lab founder/choreographer Jenny Broe, the multifaceted Joel Sadler, graphic designer Connor Lock, with emcee (and restaurateur) Ben Towill. Musical entertainment to be provided by DJ Party Dad.
WHEN: 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9
WHERE: Charleston Music Hall, 37 John St., downtown Charleston
PRICE: $12 advance; $14 day-of-show
