Japan has provided inspiration for many generations of designers, and now it’s our turn to INSPIRE JAPAN. Over 100 PechaKucha cities are coming together TODAY to hold 20x20 events around the world to help raise money for reconstruction efforts in Japan. Last year the Day for Haiti raised over $80,000
Starting simultaneously in Tokyo and Christchurch, the events will move westward, city by city, creating a 24-hour non-stop wave of creative energy to let the people of Japan know the rest of the world is with them. You can follow the presentations online via Ustream.tv -- many cities will be streaming their event live, and when that happens, you’ll find a link on the site.
All funds raised at the events will go directly to support our work in Japan and our partners Archi+Aid.
