pechakuchaPecha Kucha Night

Friday, March 13, 2015
7:30-9pm
Harbor View Hotel, Menemsha Room (131 N Water St, 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. 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 x123 or e-mail kfuller@mvmuseum.org.
