Join us for a night of creative, personal and fun presentations that will push the boundaries of traditional lectures. In the traditional PechaKucha format, we have invited community members to present on the chosen theme, Work in Progress, to compliment our current exhibition. PechaKucha comes from the Japanese term for the sound of “Chit Chat”. Originating from Tokyo, this innovative presentation format is a creative, informal, fast-paced and concise.The esteemed Sven Davis will be hosting the following confirmed presenters to date:Tanya Merchant, Ethnomusicologist, Faculty @ UCSC Music Dept
