Throwing back to PK30


Provided

We've partnered up with the Charleston Music Hall and Charleston Arts Festival to re-release videos from some of our favorite PechaKuchas from the past few years. The talks feature recognizable Charleston creatives — we'll post two a week.

We're reliving PechaKucha 30, which was held on May 30, 2018. Listen to the stories about modern day embroidery, making art, the intersection of hospitality and sustainability, and more.

The presenters from PK30 are:
Camela Guevara – Artist
Mark Stetler – Photographer
Megan Deschaine – Strawless Summer Initiative / Beverage Professional
Ivan Lima – Designer / Creative Mornings Charleston
Herb Kowalski – Mayoral Candidate

Poster Designers: Sara Pittman and Becca Barnet

Note: Due to technical difficulties, we only have five of the eight presenters' videos.
