Inspired by Nepal, a Langtang Ago

BY BRIAN SCOTT PETERSON
IN TOKYO

Prior to establishing himself in Tokyo over a decade ago, Brian Scott Peterson made a trip half way around the world to, in his words "the mystifyingly scenic", country of Nepal. In a wonderlust quest for "adventure of most epic proportions", Peterson set off from age-old city Kathmandu, long-hauling across treacherous trail to the Himalayan kingdoms highest peaks, to the remote mountainous village of Langtang, a journey against all others after would be measured.  

Heartbroken to see the recent devastation and disastrous loss of the place that forever changed his life, he offers this emotional tale of his sojourn there, simply as a starting point.  

No stranger to disaster response, Peterson hopes to eventually repeat in Nepal his successful volunteer effort from Japan, the family photo rebuilding project Photohoku

Finally he asks, "How can the tried and true creativity in the greater PechaKucha community rally to share stories and support for Nepal?"

Check out his past presentations about Photohoku:

Mountains of Support for Nepal

BY ROBIN LEWIS
@ VOL 127 ON JUL 29, 2015

Quilts for Nepal

BY KAREN MCAULAY
ON AUG 05, 2015

"This is not a slow intricate work of art. It's a quick way of making a warm cover for someone who has lost everything and needs the basics of existence."

Unsuspecting librarian by weekday, vigilante heroine seamstress by weekend, Scotswoman Karen McAulay takes the Inspire Nepal stage by sharing her story of a unique volunteer project that aims to provide disaster-struck Nepal with something we can all appreciate, the warmth of a hand-made quilt.

McAulay doesn't wait for her city's next PKN, rather putting her slides and audio together for a PechaKucha Night of one, in her own home in front of her computer. Listen to her presentation and be moved to share YOUR story of Nepal, inspiring the country back to it's vibrant self!

Civic Hacking in Nepal

BY MIKE ZUCKERMAN
@ VOL 13 ON JUL 03, 2015

Mike Zuckerman offers up some personal insights and some inspirational ideas for the what could possibly be the silver lining in Nepal's rebuilding post-earthquake. Moved by a friend who tragically perished on Mt. Everest, he suggests the time is now or never, proposing a bold vision of making creative new cities in the aftermath of disaster that can be a better reflections of the wishes and dreams of its inhabitants.

Rebuilding the Future of Nepal

BY NEVO SHINAAR
ON SEP 29, 2015

"We cannot control nature. It does what it does. However we can control human nature and our ability to work together in the face of these odds."

In Rebuilding the Future of Nepal, from our Inspire Nepal Channel, Nevo Shinaar shares the story of his involvement in the Earthquake in Nepal in 2015. After committing for 10 month's work as a volunteer in Nepal, aimed to help rural communities become more resilient to globalisation and external changes, and to enhance their quality of life, Shinaar had such a meaningful experience that he decided to stay longer and facilitate a new group of volunteers. Within another 8 months, the ravaging earthquake sent the entire country into a state of disarray particularly the very communities with with whom he'd be working. In trying to address the needs of these communities in ways that were most relevant and effective he learned some life lessons, and shares them with us here.

This was "Presenation of the Day" on Friday October 2nd, 2015.

Painting Nepal - Documenting the Adventure

BY MEREDITH MEEKS
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 02, 2017

Meredith Meeks shares the experience of artists going through a transformational period in their career. Bruce Aiken is a world renowned painter of the Grand Canyon and has devoted his life to capturing its beauty through his artwork. Now he has left the bottom of the world's most iconic canyon, to travel to top of the world - the Himalayas. For 33 years, Bruce lived in the Canyon with his wife and children, relentlessly painting the scenery around him. At age 66, Bruce was rattling his cage. His goal was to paint different scenery. But what he discovered was something different -neither expected nor calculated. Tashi Tsering is a mountain guide and community leader from Nepal. He met Bruce while guiding him through the Himalaya to Gokyo Ri - the ideal vantage point for Bruce's paintings. On their trek, Tashi shared his life altering story from the Gorkha Earthquake in 2015. He lost his wife, his daughter, and members of his extended family. His home village of Langtang lost their elders, their homes, and their economic lifeline - the tourism industry. Tashi is currently working to rebuild his village and preserve their culture for future generations. He told Bruce of the reconstruction efforts that begun immediately following the earthquake in April 2015. Tashi's story moved Bruce to go to Langtang to witness the devastation firsthand. Bruce started taking in beyond the landscape - but began painting people.

The PechaKucha Inspire Nepal Channel

In the wake of the terrible devastation from the earthquake in Nepal, we have decided to set up the PechaKucha Inspire NEPAL initiative. No matter where you are in the world, you can share your stories and experiences of Nepal in the PechaKucha 20x20 format to help inspire the country back to its vibrant and colourful self. PechaKucha Inspire Nepal will also act as a platform to share the good news about reconstruction in the country. Building on our experience with PechaKucha Inspire JAPAN where over 50 presentations — made at PechaKucha Nights around the world — were uploaded to the PechaKucha website and have been viewed nearly 100,000 times, PechaKucha Inspire NEPAL will be more nimble, allowing ANYONE to make a presentation and send it to us for upload to the Inspire NEPAL Channel. If you have a story to share about Nepal for our channel, start by sending us a mail here: inspire@pechakucha.orgHow can you take part? Option 1: Team up with your local PechaKucha Night and present! Simply click here to find if there is a PKN happening soon near you. Option 2: Simply create a PechaKucha Presentation in Keynote or Powerpoint with 20 images that auto advance every 20 seconds. Gather a few friends around a kitchen table or meeting room and record your presentions just like Brian did (see below), right here at PechaKucha HQ. Is there going to be a big global event similar to the one we held for Inspire JAPAN? We have decided that such events take up vast resources especially at PechaKucha HQ. And we want to allow future PechaKucha Inspire projects to be set up quickly. Are we going to be raising money? Other people do this much better than we can - so we are going to focus on inspiring and getting the good news there. BUT if we find people or companies that want to donate to the project they find on PechaKucha Inspire Nepal, we can help facilitate that. Send us a mail at inspire@pechakucha.org. All money will go to hands an organisation on the ground that we have personal contacts with. We have been in touch close with PechaKucha Kathmandu. Our City Organizer there, Sujan and his teams are safe and working on the relief efforts in their community, and will be holding a special PechaKucha Night there July 3rd. All those presentations will of course be added to the Inspire NEPAL Channel. Check out the PechaKucha Inspire NEPAL Channel - This is just the beginning, but please help fill it with YOUR amazing stories of and from Nepal and together we can make some beneficial connections, and in turn, Inspire Nepal.

Inspired by Nepal, a Langtang Ago

PechaKucha recently launched Inspire Nepal initiative, a project that aims to weild the creativity of the PKN community to inspire disatser-hit Nepal back to its majestic self. PechaKucha is encouraging people to share their stories about and love for Nepal in the 20x20 fomat either at their local PechaKucha Nights or in more nimble "table-talk" gatherings that can take place around a kitchen table or meeting room. This way there is nothing holding back people sharing and inspiring Nepal.  "This the what Nepal taght me and inspired in me, and I want to share this story and inspire other people to share their stories about Nepal." Brian Scott Petersons takes the lead direct from PechaKucha HQ in Tokyo offering what will hopefully be the first one many more "table talks. Here he shares the trip he made half way around the world to, in his words, "the mystifyingly scenic", country of Nepal. In a wonderlust quest for "adventure of most epic proportions", Peterson set off from age-old city Kathmandu, long-hauling across treacherous trail to the Himalayan kingdoms highest peaks, to the remote mountainous village of Langtang, a journey against all others after would be measured.   Heartbroken to see the recent devastation and disastrous loss of the place that forever changed his life, he offers this emotional tale of his sojourn there, simply as a starting point.   No stranger to disaster response, Peterson hopes to eventually repeat in Nepal his successful volunteer effort from Japan, the family photo rebuilding project Photohoku.  Finally he asks, "How can the tried and true creativity in the greater PechaKucha community rally to share stories and support for Nepal?"

Pecha Kucha Night Inspire Nepal, 3rd July 2015

Blog by ~ Yajyu Manandhar Inspiration. Fun night. People. Drinks. Art. Music. Truth be told, this is how we recall Pecha Kucha Nights (PKN). As an event, it is owned by storytellers and their listeners. To begin with, it was PKN vol. 13 and the general idea of the event continues to be a simple presentation where one shows 20 images, each for 20 seconds. “The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.” I believe these sums up the jest of the event. Just a night earlier I had the glimpse of PKN’s poster on Facebook with an invite and next morning my friends dropped all my plans and got me in for PKN vol. 13 Inspire Nepal. One got me in, in the name of social interaction and rest seem to not get enough of PKN every single time. They were true in their own stance. Later that day, I spent the evening in Club 25 hours, Tangalwood with artists, friends and creative people. Following that, I walked in the club and stood in the crowd eying the stage, waiting for the show to begin. In short the event went on with actual rock stars singing heard and unheard songs to the rock stars that rocked the stage with their stories. I dissolved in the crowd that cheered, whistled and related to the stories that were told. As time passed by I canceled my plan to leave early and went with the flow of the night. Perhaps the earthquake stories overlapped everybody’s experience in the room and related accordingly. People clapped raising eyebrows every time good ideas and acts were projected in front of them. However they clapped harder and whistled louder when slides mocked politicians and foreign media (not that foreign in fact but I believe “what’s understood, need not be explained). Supporting the storytellers and their stories we spent the night. In their stories we sang, prayed, chanted holy mantras, and in their tales - we drank. But it did not end there; the event had lot to offer with performance artists who staged in between the event. No stranger to the disaster, we sipped their performance all in silence followed by applauds. I had my own moments at times, I got the jest of the show every once and while someone walked in the stage and shared. Also few ideas clicked me and few people inspired me. To mention, poster of the show read “Share-Inspire-Get Inspired”. To be specific on it, slides of performance artist Salil Subedi included folk songs, it reflected the whole idea of singing Nepali folk song. I grew a bit more realizing the idea. Also enthusiasm and views of presenters on the disaster we explored opened me up with brilliant interpretations. The event ended late night with a performance art, but my night did not end there. The show had me in a special mood with friends and fun. As it was a fun night, I with my friends went for another round and took a road to a café nearby to acknowledge the night before we got our homes. As I just said, we were in mood.
