PechaKucha Bridgeport is designed to bring people together to listen to great personal stories. PechaKucha is Japanese for "chit-chat." It is a presentation style in which one speaker uses 20 slides, each shown for 20 seconds resulting in a total time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds. This licensed format keeps presentations focused and fast-paced. Each Bridgeport PechaKucha Night will have multiple speakers and the events will be at different locations throughout the city. The first will be at the Barnum Museum on May 9th at 6:30 pm. and will fit the theme "The noblest art is making others happy!" (P.T. Barnum). Each PechaKucha is FREE, but registration is recommended. Go to <link to be added> to register. Two workshops are being provided for learning more about how to put together your own Pechakucha for an event. See the attached poster for more information.

About the City's Organizers
My passion is the Art of Experience as an enabler to better living. I work with learning programs, community organizations, companies, individuals and groups to deliver engaging keynote addresses, performances and workshops related to the "The Art of Experience". I' reinvented myself from a Chemist to an Artist 4 years ago. I helped coordinate and produce a Westport, CT Pechakucha. I'm excited about bringing PechaKucha to Bridgeport.
