The Charleston Music Hall is thrilled to be teaming up with Charleston Arts Festival to present Pecha Kucha 30 on Wednesday, May 30th at 7:00 PM. PechaKucha, Japanese for “chit chat,” is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total) keeping presentation concise, fast-paced, and powerful. Charleston Music Hall is proud to be the official venue and producer of PechaKucha Charleston. The Music Hall, with help from our collaborators and artist liaison Terry Fox, hopes to focus on developing a strong, interesting, and diverse presenter line up from an array of different artistic, creative, and entrepreneurial disciplines and encourage collaboration, communication, and support in Charleston’s creative community.

After interning at Redux Contemporary Art Center in 2009, Cara Leepson moved to Washington, DC to pursue her MA in Art + Museum Studies at Georgetown University. Her experience as an intern at Redux helped shape her graduate studies and her career to follow. Upon the completion of her degree, she worked for a number of contemporary arts organizations in the DC area including Hillyer Art Space, Glenstone Foundation, and Transformer. In December of last year, Cara returned to the low country and to the organization which jumpstarted her career in the arts, to take the helm of Redux as Executive Director. Through upcoming programming and curatorial projects at Redux, Cara is committed to providing the artistic community of Charleston with a platform where people can engage with and create contemporary art. When she's not at Redux, you can find Cara hanging out with her dogs Duane and Peaches, jamming out live music, spending time on the water, and eating tofu tacos at YoBo.

Its mission is to harness the harrowing future and tumultuous past of Charleston, and bring it together under one harmonious roof. All the amenities of Herburbia will feature top-of-the-line engineering, construction, and manicuring, while only using locally-sourced, organic, building materials and whole grains. Herburbia is destined to become an icon, standing proud in the river next to the bridge that goes on all the logos.

Ivan Lima
Ivan Lima
Owner & Creative of Ivan Lima Design
Host & Director of CreativeMornings Charleston

His origin story is the subject of endless debates and sub-reddit threads. Some say Ivan Lima was formed when a bolt of lightning chipped a small block off the Cristo Redentor statue overlooking Rio de Janeiro. Others vehemently insist he is Samba in human form. A small but vocal minority claim to have evidence that he is the last living descendent of a long lost tribe for which the capital of Peru is named.

Wherever you fall in the debate, one surely can agree that Ivan emigrated from Brazil to the U.S. at the age of 9, to Nashville. He moved to Charleston and graduated from C of C with a B.S. in Psychology, then ventured to San Francisco to begin his career in Graphic Design. His name however, still triggers red flags with homeland security.

Oakland, CA is where he truly gained momentum in the creative community, taking on such clients as Adidas, Golden State Warriors, the Oakland A's, and lifestyle brand Oaklandish. To contribute to the community that embraced him, he founded the CreativeMornings/Oakland chapter. In 2015 he moved back to Charleston and took on lead role at CreativeMornings/Charleston chapter. He now spends his time highlighting our community's strongest and most innovative voices, branding local companies, and fighting the good fight. Needless to say, Ivan Lima certainly puts the "cha cha" in Pecha Kucha.
