@ Barnum Museum

Bridgeport PechaKucha, Volume 4, will be at the Barnum Museum on Thursday, March 21st. Attend to hear great personal stories each told in 400 seconds with 20 images!!!! The theme of TRANSFORMATIONS will honor both the first day of spring, the Bridgeport Downtown Special Services District's launch of their "Colorful Bridgeport Campaign," and the potential impact of the PechaKucha stories. This is a free event (donations accepted since we make a $1 donation per person to the global PechaKucha organization) and the doors open at 6:00. Food will be lovingly prepared and sold by Raquel Rivera-Pablo of A Pinch of Salt. The program will begin at 6:45 and will be completed by 9:00 with a 15 minute intermission.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR MORE Artists, Veterans, Writers, Dancers, Musicians, History Buffs, Cooks, Librarians, Barbers, Unicyclists, Botanists, Body Builders, Foodies, Teachers, (pretty much anyone with a passion about something) to share personal stories at this Bridgeport PECHAKUCHA – VOL 4.
