"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.

Indonesian Youth Conference

BY ALANDA KARIZA
@ VOL 7 ON NOV 03, 2010

Indonesian Youth Conference (IYC) is an activity planned and organized by youth, and aimed at gathering Indonesia youth to share problems and ideas, enhance their awareness of current issues, and convince the public that youth voices must be heard and taken seriously. IYC consists of two activities that are intertwined with each other: 1. A forum that invites 33 young people aged 15 to 21 years from all over Indonesia to represent their respective provinces at this event. They are expected to be actively involved in communities and networks, respectively, are determined to make a change towards a better Indonesia, and want to start a movement or project in their community. 2. A festival, made up of organized seminars and workshops that can be visited by anyone by buying tickets. Seminar sessions and workshops at the festival are more general, covering a wide range of issues. It invites experts, professionals, government officials, and youth achievement to talk about law and governance, politics, culture, creative industries, information technology, environment, education, health, activism, social entrepreneurship, as well as journalism and media.

A Message from Cameron Sinclair

We include here a message from Architecture for Humanity founder Cameron Sinclair that should give everyone a better idea of what the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" event really means, what's at stake, and how you can participate. Haiti Fatigue. It’s a phrase we will begin to hear over the next few weeks. The fact is more people died in Haiti than in the 12 countries affected by the ‘04 Tsunami. Oh, and rainy season begins in 8 days. So this natural disaster IS a big deal and it’s going to get rough. We are not the first responders, we’re the last responders and we’re in for the long haul. We estimate having teams in Haiti for 4 years but we will only do that with the financial support of others. Thanks to the amazing Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein we’re going to change that. We are one week away from launching Pecha Kucha for Haiti – the worlds largest distributed conference. This will be a 24 hour Pecha Kucha (20x20 style) in more than 100 cities – with 2000 presentations. 100% of all donations/proceeds will go towards building schools and community centers in Haiti. I’d love it if you got involved in some way. We are looking for a few more (local) speakers? With more than 100 cities participating there is no need to fly, no dodgy hotel to overnight in and no lost luggage. We’re making all speakers local. You live in NYC, then speak in NYC, If you are in Zilina, Czech – sorry it’s full! | Can’t find your city and are very ambitious? – email Mark Dytham and host one. *personally after doing DLD, Davos and TED, I’m excited by a conference that doesn’t require 1000+ to fly from one corner of the earth to another. Could this be the future of conferences? What does a presentation look like? Maori, The culture of my land Made in Deptford The Story So Far (about PK) Duct Tape Type Face We are looking for ‘virtual’ presentations? So you are busy, we understand. Mark and Astrid have a cunning plan. Thanks to sponsors Ustream and Rackspace we can pre-record a presentation and we can show it as we move around the world. Brian LeBarton (Beck) & Francesco Valentino just composed one – music only. Spare 400 or 20 seconds? You can be brave and do a full 20x20 (20 slides x 20 seconds = 6 min 40 sec) OR if you are really, really busy – just contribute 20 seconds of audio (and we’ll put in a slide). You can just say something like ‘I’m TKTK and do TKTK. I care about creating a sustainable and economically sound future for Haiti. Let’s Build Back Better with Architecture for Humanity.’ OK, what about someone else's time? You all know famous designers, engineers, musicians, artists and other creative spirits. Even celebrities. Admit it. Heck, NYC has Florian Idenburg, Gregg Pasquarelli, Craig Dykers and Iwan Baan to name a few – all talking about what they know best. What’s your city got? Why so serious? Look it is our job to be serious. We are immensely fortunate to work alongside communities and build their hopes and dreams. The work isn’t depressing, it is awesome. If you want to present, please be upbeat and speak on the sublime to the ridiculous. No one wants 24 hours of depressing visions, that’s called CNN. So seriously. Entertain, inspire and most importantly – be passionate. To present email me and I’ll connect you to the right people. To pre-record email Mark Dytham. To attend, show up and make a donation. By the way this email took you 6 min 40 seconds to read. So you do have the time! (I kid) Cheers, Cameron Chief Eternal Optimist @ Architecture for Humanity 848 Folsom Street, Suite 201, San Francisco, CA 94107-1173 W: 415 963 3511 | M: 646 765 0906 Architecture for Humanity is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that seeks architectural solutions to humanitarian crisis and brings professional design services to communities in need.

What are one-off PechaKucha events? One-off events are one-time events that use the PechaKucha 20x20 format, but are not part of a regular city-based PechaKucha Night series. The reason we allow them is to at least try and make sure that they get branded properly, to avoid confusion with your PechaKucha Nights. The alternative would be an avalanche of ripoff/lookalike events that could end up negatively affecting your events. The main idea is that they are considered "Powered by PechaKucha" events, and we have a special graphic (pictured above) that we ask be used to publicize them. When we are contacted about them, we will always include you on the reply if  it would happen in your city. This is so that you are aware that it is happening, and you can then: just let it happen, offer to collaborate (if it's something you are interested in doing), or if there is a real issue with it, you can raise your opposition to it. In our initial reply, we inform them of the following 3 requirements: 1. We ask that "PechaKucha" (or any derivative) not be used in the name of the event -- you can add "Powered by PechaKucha" to the name though. 2. We will provide a graphic badge that indicates that the event is "Powered by PechaKucha," and it should be included on any material used to publicize the event. 3. We ask that a minimum donation of $200 be made to help support the PechaKucha network. The main reason for the required donation is because many of these one-off events are held as part of large conferences or festivals, and we think it only fair that they give back a little for the use of the name and format. We will usually waive the fee for events by non-profit groups, school-related events, charities, etc. Can I produce a one-off PechaKucha event? Yes, you can. If you consider it to be in keeping with your regular PechaKucha Night series, you are allowed to use the "PechaKucha Night" name. If it's something that you are organizing outside of your usual series, it would be best to follow the rules set for "Powered by PechaKucha" events (although the donation is not necessary). You can download the "Powered by PechaKucha" graphics here: Graphics badge [.zip]

"Powered by PechaKucha" (PPK) 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 must include presentations that use the PechaKucha "20 images x 20 seconds" format. We have a few requirements when it comes to these -- in order to avoid any confusion with PechaKucha Nights -- and so please contact us for more info on how to organize a “Powered by PechaKucha” event.

Using the Format at Conferences

The PechaKucha format goes beyond regular PechaKucha Nights, and we are often contacted about having one-off PechaKucha sessions as part of conferences or festivals, which we call "Powered by PechaKucha" events. Here's one planned for the Werklund School of Education's IDEAS: Rising to the Challenge conference in Calgary. This spring, a conference focusing on education innovation will be held on campus, and PechaKucha will figure prominently in the program. The conference, called IDEAS: Rising to the Challenge, will focus on creating opportunities for participants to inform each other’s work, to build on ideas and to challenge the ideas of learning and teaching. According to Brenda Gladstone, co-chair of the conference and Chief Operating Officer of the Galileo Educational Network, the two-day event is for innovators, designers, educators, academics, researchers and students (hence the acronym IDEAS). “Participants will build new knowledge networks,” says Gladstone. “These networks will focus on scholarship for teaching, in which research informs teaching and leading practices, and leading edge practices from the field inform research.” Read the rest of the article.
