Hands-On History: PechaKucha

On April 9, Fuse Theatre and the San Mateo County History Museum will present a PechaKucha workshop.

During the workshop at the museum, adults will learn about the PechaKucha style of presentation that uses 20 slides, each exactly 20 seconds long. The presentations developed by the participants will be based on stories from Land of Opportunity: The Immigrant Experience in San Mateo County and/or personal stories and experiences. “PechaKucha is a unique style of presentation that forces presenters to be very organized and convey a message or concept in a concise format,” said Stacey Ardelean, Founder of Fuse Theatre.

On April 9 from 1-4 p.m., participants in PechaKucha and Beyond will explore the creative process and generate ideas through a gallery tour. Participants will learn the basics of the Pecha Kucha presentation style, using PowerPoint to create presentations. They will practice and receive coaching on their presentation. Selected PechaKucha programs from the workshops will be presented at a public event on April 21 at 7 p.m. at the museum.

Participants with their own laptop or tablet are encouraged to bring them to the workshop.
