What is Global PechaKucha Night – Inspire Japan?
Japan has inspired designers for many generations. On the March 11, Japan suffered what has been described as a 1000 year event. The earthquake and tsunami destroyed 400km of coastline, killing over 10,000 people, leaving 400,000 people homeless, and has triggered a nuclear situation that is still unfolding. Japan has inspired us all, now is it our turn to "Inspire Japan."
Please join us on April 16 and be a part of Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan. Let's all come together and show Japan that the creative world is thinking of them, that all is not lost, and that it is possible to stand up and rebuild, even in villages and towns which have been completely destroyed. With creativity and passion, anything is possible.
- Astrid Klein & Mark Dytham, PechaKucha Founders - Tokyo
Support Architecture for Humanity?
Yes! Proceeds from Inspire Japan will go directly to Architecture for Humanity (AFH), who PechaKucha supported last year with Global PechaKucha for Haiti. They currently have a Team in Sendai and a design fellow in Tokyo. http://architectureforhumanity.org/
What are PechaKucha Nights?
PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps - just about anything really, in the PechaKucha 20x20 format.
What is 20x20?
PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images forward automatically and you talk along to the images.
