It’s time again for your quarterly dose of inspiration via another staggering array of doers, thinkers, creators, and provokers. We’re talking, of course, about the 28th installment of PechaKucha.

Just in case you’re somehow not familiar yet, our local edition is one of many international spinoffs of the Japanese presentation/lecture concept which is brilliant in its simplicity. Presenters, selected for their achievements, contributions and outlooks, get 20 slides each, which are each shown for only 20 seconds, for a total of six minutes and 40 seconds per presentation.



For attendees, the fast-moving and concise format allows for easy apprehension of material and cuts back on natural tendencies toward losing focus. For presenters, the format forces them to crystallize their content until, hopefully, only the best parts are left.

The eight presenters for PechaKucha San Antonio volume 28 are El Paso artist Margarita Cabrera (whose work focuses on social-political community issues), couturier and fashion editor Leighton W., Trish DeBerry (CEO of communications firm The DeBerry Group), journalist and ceramic artist Mary Lance, philanthropist April Ancira, Trinity University President Danny Anderson, Magik Theatre founder Richard Rosen and former congressman Charles Gonzalez.

$5, Tuesday, December 5, happy hour at 6:30pm, presentations at 7:30pm, Laurie Auditorium at Trinity University, One Trinity Pl., (210) 999-8117, pksa28.splashthat.com.
