In The Resurrection of Christchurch from PKN Tokyo's Vol. 134 Pow Wow Special, PechaKucha Night Christchurch Organisers Netta Egoz and Erica Austin use the 17 PKNs since the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes as a means to document the social rebuild of the city. The events move from temporary buildings to pop up public spaces and finally back to permanent buildings as the city reopens and rebuilds. Each event showcases a different venue, designer, photographer, and the speakers often talk about their ideas for a better city which are now collated under the Inspire Christchurch channel!
