About PechaKucha

PechaKucha (Japanese for “chit chat”) is an event format developed by Tokyo’s Klein Dytham Architecture in 2003 and has been picked up by more than 800 local chapters globally. Once a quarter, eight PechaKucha presenters get exactly 20 images, and each image advances automatically every 20 seconds (for a total time of 6:40). San Antonio’s first quarterly PechaKucha Night was held in February 2011 and now attracts hundreds of attendees to venues throughout San Antonio. It showcases a broad range of individuals, including artists, craftsmen, academics, STEM professionals, community leaders and more.

Featured Presentation

Joe Reyes owes his work ethic to his family and the discipline they instilled in him. The promise of work in Mexico’s silver mines attracted his great grandfather’s family, but the Mexican Revolution sent his family fleeing north to Texas. His early exposure to music came in the form of folkloric Mexican music, but it was “Los Beatles” that struck a chord. Joe Reyes’ presentation shares his musical journey that included different acts, international tours and even a Grammy win and a Latin Grammy nomination.
