What began in Japan in the early 2000’s as a networking event has turned into a celebration of the arts at Edgartown’s Harbor View Hotel. “PechaKucha Night” which draws its name from the Japanese term for “chit chat,” will return to the Harbor View on Friday, February 21 from 7:30 to 9:30 pm. Presentations follow the same simple format: 20 images are shown for 20 seconds each. According to a press release from the hotel, “it’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.” The event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required only for presenters. For more information, call Jessica at 508-627-4441, ext. 117, or e-mail
