Bridgeport PechaKucha Volume 8
This PechaKucha focuses on “Larger Than Life”! You will be sure to hear authentic, possibly unexpected personal stories — interesting experiences that may make YOU laugh, cry and/or spark new ideas!
PechaKucha translates to “Chit-Chat” in Japanese, but that’s somewhat misleading. It’s a group of people each presenting for six minutes and forty seconds with 20 compelling photos or visuals shown 20 seconds each. This makes each story succinct, interesting, inspiring, fun and/or funky. A PechaKucha is a tasty storytelling feast!
Barnum Museum doors open at 6 pm with presentations starting at 6:50 pm. Donations accepted. Visitors may purchase food from Raquel Rivera’s A Pinch of Salt.
There will continue to be at least three PechaKucha nights in Bridgeport annually. You can find more information and see past Bridgeport PechaKucha Night presentations online at https://www.pechakucha.com/cities/bridgeport.
