BCCJ Community Hub: Powered by PechaKucha

Join us to celebrate and support the great work being done by community organisations in the BCCJ's ecosystem

In addition to our own community programme, Books For Smiles, the BCCJ strives to support a number of community organisations across Japan - including local NPOs and volunteer organisations.

On the evening of October 9, we are very pleased to be handing the microphone to 7 of our closest community partners, who will deliver updates on their activities - powered by PechaKucha's engaging and internationally successful presentation format.

Speakers will each present 20 images reflecting the work done by their organisations, and showcase opportunities for you to support, speaking for just 20 seconds about each slide (20x20!).

Held at the home of PechaKucha, SuperDeluxe in Nishi Azabu, the evening will include plenty of opportunities to socialise and network with like-minded guests.

This is an ideal event for businesses and individuals interested in CSR and responsible business.

Come along and consider how you can support the excellent efforts of the BCCJ's community partners!

Participating organisations:

  • Bridge for Smiles (partner of BCCJ's Books for Smiles programme)
  • RIJ 
  • TELL 
  • WaterAid 
  • Lighthouse
  • OGA for Aid
  • F-World

"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format."

Contact us below if you would like to use the PechaKucha format in your event.
