Pecha Kucha Columbus is hosting its next event at Grandview's Junctionview Studios on Aug. 9. It begins at 7:30 p.m., and will include speakers from Slow Food Columbus, Global Gallery and Ohio Roller Girls. Pecha Kucha was founded in 2003 and allows people to share their work. If you've never been to a Pecha Kucha event before, here's how it works: Each speaker shows a series of 20 images and talks about each one for 20 seconds, creating a quick, visually-driven performance. The Columbus chapter is asking each guest to make a $2 donation, and you can purchase eats from various food trucks. Learn more at Pecha-Kucha.org. –Heather Weekley, @heather_weekley
