During the workshops at the museum, adults will learn about the Pecha Kucha 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. “Pecha Kucha 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 March 5 from 1-4 p.m., Pecha Kucha Basics 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.
On April 9 from 1-4 p.m., participants in Pecha Kucha and Beyond will continue to work on their presentations and practice with coaching. Selected Pecha Kucha 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.
