PechaKucha Presentation

NOW HOW

CREATED ON MARCH 11, 2016
IN TOKYO

"Let's get the value of regional Japan out to the world because the world will benefit from it."

In NOW HOW From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future"  Adam Fulford uses the word NowHow as a rough translation of "ichigo ichie," a Japanese tea ceremony concept that focuses attention on the unique value of each encounter. "Now" is the only time available to us to take action, and so it would seem appropriate to try to make the best possible use of that opportunity. Adam uses his take on traditional East Asian and Japanese culture to design a "now" whose aim is to improve the survival potential of the amazingly diverse communities to be found, on the brink of collapse, in regional Japan. For his NowHow and Walkshop activities, he brings together international teams whose task is to unearth buried treasure -- while also experiencing the power of "deep Japan" to mend a broken heart. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, March 15th, 2016.

The Tohoku Effect

BY MARK DYTHAM
IN TOKYO

“When the Haiti earthquake struck, we ran an event around the world on 24 hour skype. A Year later, the shoe was on the other foot; the earthquake happened in Japan. 105 cities got together within 3 weeks and we held an Inspire Japan Event.”


From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Speaker and PechaKucha founder Mark Dytham presents "The Tohoku Effect" on PechaKucha’s and PechaKucha Inspire’s history. No one could have predicted that the small one-off event would balloon into a popular presentation format to be used the world over. PechaKucha Certainly has its perks; It’s free, It’s simple, it lets people give their work exposure. Most importantly of all, it builds community. It is such communities that come together when tragedies strike and help build warm spaces.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesdaym March 17th, 2016.
