NEXT EVENT VOL 19

TAOS, NM — JANUARY 14, 2016 — iViva Pecha Kucha! Celebrando el arte y la cultura de Latinos y Latinas, Taoseños y Taoseñas - and everything Hispanic. Pecha Kucha Taos will return to the TCA (133 Paseo del Pueblo Norte) for Volume 19 on Thursday, February 18th. This special bilingual event will begin at 7:00 PM. Doors open at 6:00 with preshow drinks and music. Tickets are $10 at the door or in advance at the TCA offices and on sale now and online at www.tcataos.org.

The term “Pecha Kucha” is Japanese, and refers to the sound of “chit chat.” The gist of Pecha Kucha is that artists are given an opportunity to showcase and present 20 images of their work, with images changed every 20 seconds. The whole presentation is 6 minutes and 40 seconds per artist.  Volume 19 will feature live entertainment by The Taos High Mariachi El Tigre with hors d'oeuvres provided by Toribio’s.

New for 2016, Pecha Kucha Night Taos introduces “20x20x20 Students.”  To encourage the students in our community to join us in the sharing of the incredible talent found within Taos, each Pecha Kucha event will offer 20 free tickets to a different local school.
