We are very happy to host another PechaKucha at The Bridge. We love to get together as a community and celebrate so many amazing talents we have here at Green School and beyond.
The PechaKucha 20×20 presentation format is a slide show of 20 images, each auto-advancing after 20 seconds. It’s non-stop, and presenters have 400 seconds to tell their story, with visuals guiding the way.
This edition happens as part of the art festival. We are super excited to celebrate great artists in the community. We have an inspiring lineup and you can not miss the opportunity to get inspired, engage with other community members, and just have fun together.
