Bridgeport PechaKucha Volume 8

PechaKucha Event: On Tuesday, May 19th at the Barnum Museum from 6:00 to 9:00 PM  

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!
