Himalayan DIY'n

BY BEN AYERS
@ VOL 13 ON JUL 03, 2015

"It's an important and powerful time.  It's also an opportunity for us to re-write the book on how earthquakes go in developing nations."

In Himalayan DIY'n from PechaKucha Katmandu Vol. 13, and as part of our Inspire Nepal Initiative, Ben Ayers, a long term expatriate resident of Nepal tells a few stories about how locals organized themselves after the earthquake, and how the inherent resiliency of Nepalis will be the key to the reconstruction.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on Monday, Aug 24th, 2015.

About the City's Organizers

  • Sujan Chitrakar

    Kathmandu based visual artist and art educator at Center for Art and Design of Kathmandu University from its inception and is heading the program from 2005 onward. Organized PechaKucha Night Kathmandu along with his good friend Chris Haughton. Chris was a visiting lecturer at the university. They had the idea of setting up events and talks outside the University structure as a way of engaging more people and creating an interesting event and environment. They wanted to welcome people from diverse disciplines to participate and create a unique forum for Kathmandu. And they came together to organize PechaKucha Night in Kathmandu.
