Pecha Kucha Night #11 - Josephine St Theater


Pecha Kucha, japanese for "chit-chat",began in Tokyo in 2003. The project has since expanded to cities around the globe as an event for young professionals to display their ideas to a like-minded and curious audience.
After making its way to San Antonio, TX in 2011, Pecha Kucha SA is poised for a 12th installment later this year.

Presentations follow a format of 20 slides, displayed for 20 seconds each, exhibiting their work throughout the night at a riveting pace.

Tuesday's event brought together ideas from cocktail bartenders to ceramic art to anthropology in South America.

I had the chance to get a few questions from guest speakers:

Chris Davila - art consultant

Jennifer Ling Datchuk - ceramic artist

Jeremy Mandrell & Anne Ng - brains and brawn of Bakery Lorraine

Community at Large: You clearly display a strong utilization of social media skills. Is this changing the dynamic of interaction in the arts community?

Chris Davila:

CL: Other than reaching you through social media, can you tell us about hosting "The Chris Connection"?


Community at Large: Your work addresses conflicts of race, domestic issues, etc. Given your diverse ethnic background, how has San Antonio embraced your art?

Jennifer Ling Datchuk: 

CL: Any future exhibits coming up?


Community at Large: Most husband-wife teams working in restaurants can be found in front-of-the-house and back-of-the-house, respectively. What was it like with both of you working in the kitchen at Bouchon?

Bakery Lorraine: 

CL: What are you some of your favorite items on the menu?


CL: You started out at a farmer's market, working your way up to a brick-and-mortar. What can we expect to come from Bakery Lorraine?
