PechaKucha

In April, Fuse Theatre and the San Mateo County History Museum will present a PechaKucha student workshop series. Through PechaKucha, high school students will be able to share and discuss thoughts on immigration related the museum’s exhibit, 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. “We’re very excited about partnering with the San Mateo County History Museum to teach these techniques and involve students in our community with our local history.”

Students will be able to participate in two workshop sessions at the San Mateo County History Museum. On April 7 from 4-6 p.m., PechaKucha Basics will explore the creative process and generate ideas through a gallery tour. Participants will learn the basics of the PechaKucha presentation style, using PowerPoint to create presentations. On April 14 from 4 p.m.-6 p.m., participants in PechaKucha and Beyond will continue to work on their presentations and practice with coaching. 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.
