PechaKucha LogoPechaKucha Night

Friday, January 23, 2015
7:30pm
Harbor View Hotel (131 N. Water Street, Edgartown)

PechaKucha Night was devised in Japan in 2003 as an event for young designers to network. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for "chit chat," it rests on a simple presentation format: show 20 images for 20 seconds each, and talk as the images advance automatically. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.

Reservations are required only if you'd like to present. Call Jessica at 508.627.4441 x117.

Free and open to all to attend. Food and drink will be available for purchase from the hotel.
