20 seconds is all it took to destroy so many lives and dreams in Haiti. The Global PechaKucha family is coming together with Architecture for Humanity to help rebuild Haiti, 20 seconds at a time. On Feb. 20, the 276 cities that host PechaKucha events worldwide will converge to present one continuous 24-hour edition of PechaKucha Night. Kicking off at SuperDeluxe in Tokyo, where PechaKucha Night was first conceived seven years ago, the presentation wave will travel eastward, with cities presenting one after the other. Crossing all times zones and cultures, the event will be streamed live online and then finish in Tokyo the following day.
Curated by Gordon Duffy and sponsored by Studio DuB, Pecha Kucha Edinburgh's next event will be at Inspace:
The University of Edinburgh's Inspace is a public engagement facility that explores the cultural significance of informatics and new media practice.
Inspace is home to a joint research partnership between the School of Informatics and New Media Scotland.
Pecha Kucha Edinburgh gratefully acknowledges their support in hosting the event at Inspace.
