Haiti Reconstruction Channel

117 PechaKucha Night cities came together to raise money for reconstruction in Haiti on the 20th of February, 2010, just 4 weeks after the earthquake. Raising $79,000 for Architecture for Humanity, the money has helped build a school, which opened in November of 2011.

PKN Bali for Haiti

The "PechaKucha Global Night for Haiti" will be a true community event, bringing together as many of the PKN cities as possible on one day (February 20). The organizers of PKN Bali were among the first to pledge their support, and here's a look at the poster they've put together for the event. Note that the venue is still to be announced.


PKN Gothenburg + Haiti

Gothenburg will be supporting the Haiti efforts in a number of ways. Although a proper event will not be held on the 20th, they will be participating in the PechaKucha Wave with a special presentation: "20 things you can do to help Haiti." Then, on the 23rd, PKN Gothenburg Vol. 18 will include special presentations on how to help in Haiti, and include a fundraiser as well. Make sure to visit this page for more details on everything.


PKN Nagoya + Haiti

Nagoya will be hosting an event during the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti," to be held at the Like Air + Water venue, from 18:00. See the poster above for more details.


PKN Madrid for Haiti

Continuing with our series of event reviews from this past Saturday's "PechaKucha for Haiti" events, here's a look at the very cool venue that hosted Madrid's PKN, which was also the city's Vol. 8. We've selected a few photos to share, but there's a lot more to see in this Flickr photoset.


PKN Berlin for Haiti

When it came time to bringing together something for Haiti in Berlin for the big global event, PKN friend ULESHKA -- you may also know her as one of the driving forces behind the PechaKucha Night book -- took it upon herself to quickly organize an intimate session, inviting a lot of the great personalities we've recently featured both in the "Presentations" of the site as well as here on the PechaKucha Daily blog. Here then are a few photos from the event, which really show off Ryo Bordini Chikushi's "Liegewiese."


PKN Haiti Event on Ustream

We've already posted details about tonight's (May 8) special PechaKucha Night for Haiti "thank you" event with Cameron Sinclair, but let us also add that the whole thing will be broadcast live over Ustream. It all happens here, and we'll go live from 19:45 Tokyo Time.


PKN Hanoi Vol. 3

To conclude today's Hanoi coverage, we share with you a few photos from the city's PechaKucha Night Vol. 3 (as well as a couple of photos from its Vol. 1), and have a report to share from organizer Colin Campbell.Our hope for PechaKucha Hanoi was that with an open approach and the inherent flexibility of the 20 slides x 20 seconds format we would be able to tempt some of the creativity lurking shyly in the corners of our city out into the open -- and so it has proved. Over the three events there have been almost as many styles and subjects as presentations. We have seen several Hanoi photostories, the outing of secret passions and several personal accounts of how and why people create their art, music, films and enterprises.We have also, pleasingly, seen our presenters push the format in different directions -- we have had images with sign language, a single visual concept repeated, a bilingual pictorial poem and some musical experimentation. We welcome these innovations and look forward to seeing how our next set of speakers will engage with our growing audience (more than 250 at the last event) at our next event in May. We do feel we can do better in reaching out to different sections of the local community though. Our most important goal for PechaKucha Hanoi is for it to be a community event for Hanoians of any background or culture to share ideas and this is a work in progress. We saw in the last event two bilingual presentations and we hope for more of that from both native and non-native Vietnamese speakers. We owe a huge debt to our hosts at the Hanoi Cinematheque for helping us create a warm and homely atmosphere for the three nights we have run. By helping us to set up two screens, we have been able to offer different ways to experience the event. In the main room with the presenters or, in the courtyard closer to the bar. We will work on ensuring we have a plentiful supply of cold beer especially as we head into the summer for PechaKucha Hanoi #4 on May 17th and we hope to see another full house for what is already shaping up to be another eclectic and entertaining evening in the Vietnam Capital. Below, presenter Cate Gunn at PechaKucha Night in Hanoi Vol. 1. Also from PKN Hanoi Vol. 1:


A Guide to Landscapes, Improving a Train Station, and Rampant Inspiration in Gothenburg

Presentations João Nunes is an architect, and in this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Catania Vol. 10) he talks about the challenges involved in working with landscapes. This usually means having to balance elements such as time, conditions, and the type of terrain, along with very different materials. In "A Rough Guide to Wakefield Kirkgate" (from PKN Barnsley Vol. 4), Sharon Shepherds shares a few ideas on what could be done to make the historic Wakefield Kirkgate station look better. Posters We've got two new additions to our Tumblr blog, including the poster for PKN Manizales Vol.  3 you see pictured above, as well as the two sides of the PKN San Antonio Vol. 6 flyer. Photos We have quite a few photo galleries to share with you today, some from PKNs that happened a while ago (so not necessary from a city's latest volume). Pictured above, PKN Hanoi Vol. 1.PKN Manizales Vol. 2 [Flickr]PKN Sao Paulo Vol. 9 [Flickr]PKN Marseille Vol. 17 [Facebook]PKN Catania Vol. 6 [Flickr]PKN Albury-Wodonga Vol. 1 [Flickr]PKN Hanoi Vol. 1 [Flickr] We shared a report by PKN Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson recently (about the city's recent Vol. 31), and here's a follow-up on the topic of instant inspiration:Sometimes inspiration travels fast. The day after PKN Gothenburg Vol. 31, presenter and sushi chef José Seruda went out in the city to find edible ingredients inspired by Klara Hansson who presented about "The edible city" the same night, and during the beer break served up a 'Kokoro salad' based on wild city plants. José's own hunt resulted in a brand new starter dish using Daisy, Garlic-mustard flower and Dandelion Leaf served as part of the omakase offering the same night at his restaurant Hoze. I'm guessing it's this kind of passion for experimentation with ingredients and flavors that might be the reason many consider Hoze one of Sweden's best sushi restaurants. Below is a video of Klara going hunting for wild plants in Gothenburg city on a previous occasion and within 30 minutes serving up a fresh mushroom salad. How has a PechaKucha presentation inspired you? Calendar As we covered yesterday, tonight's (Wednesday, May 23) calendar includes PKN Prague Vol. 29, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 3, PKN Leksand Vol. 4, and PKN Copenhagen Vol. 20. Tomorrow is a big Thursday (May 24), with the following events on tap: PKN Istanbul Vol. 14, PKN Seattle Vol. 35, PKN Helsinki Vol. 21, PKN London Vol. 6, PKN Kosice Vol. 18, and PKN Yerevan Vol. 16.


Guimaraes as Capital of Culture, Plzen's Urban Development, and Photos from Tijuana

Presentations For 2012, the historical city of Guimaraes (Portugal) has become the European Capital of Culture. During this time, the city is full of hope, energy, creativity, and it is also full of brand new 6'40'' narratives to share. Active since October 2011, the PechaKucha Night Guimares experience has had so many stories, and in this presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 94), the city's organizers, José Martins and João Rosmaninho, will introduce and chat about the Country, the City, and its PechaKucha Night. Bohdan Bláhovec's presentation (in Czech, from PKN Plzen Vol. 1) is titled "The Vision of Developers and City Municipality," and as a representative of an unnamed developer, he covers the vision of future development in Plzen. In just 6 minutes and 666667 hundreds of seconds he undresses the city and thus exposes its pure beauty. Posters We have two new flyers to share today on the Tumblr blog: PKN Hanoi Vol. 5 (pictured above), happening this Thursday, and PKN Williamsburg Vol. 3, set for November. Photos Tijuana held its very first PKN back in July, and here's a small photo gallery [Flickr] to give you an idea of what that event looked like. No word yet on when Vol. 2 will take place, but it shouldn't be too long before an announcement is made. Calendar There are no events happening tonight, but here's what's in store for tomorrow (September 25): PKN Bowling Green Vol. 1, PKN Birmingham Vol. 6, PKN Huddersfield Vol. 6, PKN Lyon Vol. 4, and PKN Nantes Vol. 4.
