Living Arts of Tulsa will host its third PechaKucha Night at 7 p.m. Saturday, giving creative Tulsans the opportunity to present a condensed, multimedia glimpse at the work they do.
Tickets for the evening, to be held at the Living Arts Space, 307 E. Brady St., are $10 at the door.
PechaKucha began in Japan in 2003, as a way of networking with others through carefully structured presentations. The format allows each individual to present 20 images, each being shown for 20 seconds, that describe the work they do or the project in which they are engaged.
Participants in the upcoming PechaKucha Night are:
Gary Shaffer, CEO of Tulsa County Library, will discuss "Moving the Tulsa Library in a Digital Age."
Steve Liggett, executive director of Living Arts, on the art of Angkor Wat.
Anton Von Ostendorf, trapeze artist and Circus Camp director, on how children's issues can be addressed by a Circus Camp.
Kate Silvey, chairwoman of the New Genre Festival and development director for DVIS, on the artists scheduled for the 20th annual New Genre Festival, coming to Tulsa from Feb. 22 to March 2.
Julia Kirt, executive director of Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition, on the organization's most creative programs, including the "Concept/OK" exhibit on display at the Hardesty Arts Center.
Mana Tahaie, Tulsa YWCA director of racial justice, on racism in Tulsa and YWCA programs that work to combat it.
May Yang, printmaker and artist, discussing her work in the exhibit "Processed," currently on display at Living Arts.
