“Audience members love PechaKucha Night Hamptons because presenters share their passions through storytelling and autobiography,” explained program organizer Andrea Grover, the Parrish Art Museum’s Century Arts Foundation Curator of Special Projects.
On Friday, March 11th at 6 p.m., the Water Mill-based museum will present its 15th Volume of PechaKucha Night Hamptons, where guest speakers will captive attendees with tales of living creatively on the East End. During the rapid-fire lectures, each presenter will have 6 minutes and 40 seconds to cover 20 slides, equating to about 20 seconds per topic. This PechaKucha session will feature storytellers that are experts in a variety of fields including visual arts, music, and mathematics.
“What is revealed is the unbelievable depth of talent and accomplishment that exists in our small but globally-connected community,” added Grover.
Presenters will include filmmakers Beatrice Alda and Jennifer Brooke, mathematics professor Moira Chas, architect Bruce Engel, adman Neil Kraft, Hayground School teacher Mbachi Kumwenda, musician Peter Landi, author and filmmaker Kenny Mann, artist Cindy Pease Roe, photographer Joni Sternbach, and artist Evan Desmond Yee.
Admission to PechaKucha Night Hamptons is $10 and free for members. The event is currently sold out, but an in-person waiting list will open on Friday at 5 p.m.
