Personal story telling - Pechakucha Night
PechaKucha Night Bridgeport brings people together from diverse backgrounds to listen to great personal stories and learn from each other in a casual and authentic atmosphere. PechaKucha means “chit-chat” in Japanese. Speakers present their stories accompanied by 20 slides, shown for 20 seconds each, resulting in a total time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds. This licensed format keeps presentations focused and fastpaced.

PechaKucha nights are organized by local community members and described as “live events with real people telling real srtories.” Talks are uploaded to an international website including 1000 participating cities.

Bridgeport Art Trail artists will be among the presenters at this Sunday evening gathering, also serving as the closing party of the BAT weekend, celebrating the art of conversation and community. Confirmed presenters are: Ina Anderson, Michelle Blacksmith, Alicia Cobb, Lauren Coakley Vincent, Iyaba Ibo Mandingo, Tom Mezzanotte, Thomas Patsaneka, Liz Torres.
$1 contribution goes to the international PechaKucha organization.
