Now in its 35th iteration, PechaKucha’s format is well known to many San Antonians. The short talks feature 20 slides shown for 20 seconds apiece, clocking in at a cool six minutes and 40 seconds per presenter. Each “volume” of PechaKucha features six speakers with a range of backgrounds to create an evening that showcases the diversity of minds at work in our city.

This time, the presenters include artist Jesse Amado, immigration reporter Silvia Foster-Frau, education leader Gladys Karen Hernández, planetary astrophysicist Natalie Hinkel, the entertainer Karlos with a K and director of the San Antonio Department of Arts and Culture Debbie Racca-Sittre.

As with every PechaKucha, the night will begin with a reception to encourage chit-chat amongst the attendees before emcees Randy Beamer and Gary Sweeney kick things off.

$5, Tuesday, September 10, 6:30 p.m., Charline McCombs Empire Theatre, 226 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 226-5700, majesticempire.com.
