Bridgeport Art Trail Finale - PECHAKUCHA

Bridgeport Art Trail Finale - PECHAKUCHA

All Ages

Since this PechaKucha celebrates the last day of the Bridgeport Art Trail, the theme for this event will be CREATIVITY AND LEADERSHIP IN THE ARTS. 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! This Sunday evening gathering, which also serves as a unique closing party of the BAT weekend, celebrates creativity and leadership in the arts.

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 6.

Bijou Doors open at 6 pm. $1 contribution goes to the international Food and drink will be available to purchase!
