Zwai and Phillip

Our final presentation from PechaKucha Night in Johannesburg Vol. 5 is a bit of an irreverent one -- OK, maybe actually QUITE irreverent -- with Zwai and Phillip sharing with us "Rebuilding, the African Way." We hope it puts a smile on your face. You can see more presentation from Johannesburg in that city's section of the "Presentations" area.

Brett Will

Continuing with our a look at a few presentations from PechaKucha Night in Johannesburg Vol. 5, here then is Brett Will who shows us how we should go about "Rebuilding a nation by embracing children." Please take note that donations are still indeed being accepted for the "PechaKucha for Haiti" reconstruction efforts, and that you can donate directly to a presentation that moved you, or for a city -- on that city's respective PKN page -- that you want to represent.



We'll end our week of postings on the blog with a trio of presentations taken from PechaKucha Night in Johannesburg Vol. 5, held on February 20 as part of the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti." First up is Studio4332 with a special "Silent salute to Haiti."

When one person passes away, we honour them by staying silent for 1 minute, but what do you do when 230,000 die? A silent presentation.


Johannesburg will be joining in on the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" on the 20th, with an event happening at Atlas Studios (Milpark, Studio 3, top gate), from 20:00. Here's also a look at a terrific teaser video put together by the organizers.


The organizers behind PechaKucha Night in Johannesburg love to release teaser videos before each event, and they've put together another one for the upcoming Vol. 4, with the theme of "What is beauty?" The event itself happens this Thursday (December 3) at Atlas Studios.

PKN Johannesburg Vol. 3

Last week's PechaKucha Night in Johannesburg Vol. 3 was a great success, garnering "compliments throughout the day on a superb event with excellent presentations." Organizer Mary Cassel-Faulks sends in a few photos from the event, and take note that the date for Vol. 4 has already been set: November 26.



We were big fans of the last video that Johannesburg put together before its first PechaKucha Night, and they've done it again with a great new "trailer" for Vol. 2, scheduled for July 2.


PechaKucha Night debuted in Johannesburg last night, and while we'll have a report on the event soon, in the meantime here's a fun video put together by the organizers, inviting a few locals to try and pronounce "PechaKucha," and explain its meaning.
