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! Some Bridgeport Art Trail artists are already among the presenters at this Sunday evening gathering, which also serves as a unique closing party of the BAT weekend, celebrating the art of conversation and community.
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 3.Bijou Doors open at 6 pm. $1 contribution goes to the international PechaKucha.org. Food and drink will be available to purchase!
