Brian LeBarton & Francesco Valentino

Masses

PRESENTED ON JAN 27, 2010
IN TOKYO @ VOL 68

Brian LeBarton and Francesco Valentino have never met. The terrible tragedy in Haiti has brought them together by fate for this moving presentation. Brian LeBarton is a composer and keyboardist for Beck - and we had been chatting to him about musicians performing over 20 images 20 slides for PechaKucha presentations. Francesco Valentino is a film maker and photograher who we knew through a chance meeting in Tokyo. Only a few days ago when we had this idea of PechaKucha for Haiti, Brian stepped forward and said he would compose and play something for us - at the same time we bumped into someone who said Francesco was in Haiti trying to find his family and had been taking some moving shots as events unfurled. Sadly he didn't find all the lives he was looking for. This a poignant first PechaKucha presentation for Haiti. Thank you Brian, thank you Francesco - and thank you Joey and Corrie for making this happen. Please spread the word about this initiative and our Global PechaKucha Day on 20th February - and please click the donate button. Many other bands are working with us. If you are a photographer or have any other images of Haiti past or present you want to share - we will be happy to match you with a musician. Please get in touch info@pecha-kucha.org. Unlike anything else out there in this world of visual entertainment the PechaKucha Presentation Player allows you look, listen and think. Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham PechaKucha founders

The Joseph School in Haiti

BY KENNON CALHOUN
IN NASHVILLE

James Kennon speaks about his work with The Joseph School in Haiti. On the island of Haiti of the 9.2 million people, 80% live below the International Poverty Line equating to 7.4 million people with an average income of less than $2 per day. Haiti is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere. The most impactful way to help Haiti is to empower them to help themselves. Leadership changes everything.
