Worlds collide when Charleston Arts Festival and Charleston Parliament team up to co-host PechaKucha XXV! Our festival will open with this speaking series that will highlight local musical talent – including musical artists Ann Caldwell, Lily Slay, and Matt Monday as well as Jerrod Wilkins of Gold Mountain Entertainment, Dan McCurry from the Hearts & Plugs Record Label, Alex Harris of local venue The Charleston Pour House, Lisa Moran representing The Art Counsel, and music editor Kelly Rae Smith of Charleston City Paper.

To shake it up a bit more, we’re helping to curate live performances by The Plantation Singers, She Returns From War, and Very Hypnotic Soul Band.
