SUNDAY: PechaKucha Storytelling and Closing Party at the Bijou Theatre. Gather with the Bridgeport Art Trail crowd and enjoy an evening of storytelling done in the PechaKucha-style (“chit chat” in Japanese), bringing people together from diverse backgrounds to listen to great personal stories and learn from each other in a casual and authentic atmosphere. Speakers present their stories accompanied by 20 slides, shown for 20 seconds each, resulting in a total time of 6 minutes and 40 seconds per speaker. This licensed format keeps presentations focused and fast-paced, Bridgeport Art Trail presenters.
