Join us for a PechaKucha presentation featuring eight Anchorage storytellers during Spenard’s 2nd Saturday Art Walk on Saturday, March 9th, 7pm at The Nave. Sliding-scale admission $10 – $30, tickets available through Bunnell Street Arts Center.
The PechaKucha 20×20 presentation format is a slide show of 20 images, each self-advancing every 20 seconds. It’s non-stop, giving each presenter 400 seconds to tell their story with visuals guiding the way. Eight Anchorage presenters will share their strategies to create community and connection through their passion in this wonderful night of live storytelling.
