WESTPORT, Conn. — What’s a PechaKucha?
Find out in this introductory session at 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26 in the Westport Public Library’s Great Hall.
The program is a prelude to the PechaKucha event at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 20 in the library’s McManus Room.
A growing phenomena in more than 800 cities around the world, a PechaKucha is a fun, community-building, fast-fire storytelling event where creative people come together to share their passions, ideas, avocations, projects and talents.
A PechaKucha night generally takes place in a restaurant, bar or informal venue. A maximum of eight presenters take no longer than six minutes and 40 seconds each to present 20 slides on their topic, which could be anything from underwater archaeology to ukulele meetups to dog agility competitions.
Motivational speaker Nina Lesigna said: “This is such a fabulous way to get to know what amazing things other people in your area are doing. A PechaKucha could be on almost anything — eco-fashion, paper art, good cheap food in Tokyo, you name it. It’s about authenticity and passion and connecting. If you like TED talks, you’ll love PechaKucha.”
