Although the focus of our upcoming Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan fundraiser, we have not forgotten our friends in Christchurch, and we are very happy to announce that PKN Christchurch organizer Vanessa Coxhead and her team will be kicking off the whole event. We include here a press release from Vanessa that details the Christchurch event.

All funds raised on the night will be distributed to Architecture for Humanity's current rebuilding effort in Christchurch and the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal. Limited capacity. Cash bar only. On 22 February, as Christchurch was preparing to rebuild after the 4 September Canterbury Earthquake, the earth shook and again we have found ourselves in recovery mode, mourning the loss of lives, livelihoods, beloved places and spaces, our much loved heritage and our homes. Then on 11 March, Japan suffered an earthquake and tsunami that destroyed 400km of coastline, killed over 10,000 people, left 400,000 people homeless, and triggered a nuclear situation that is still unfolding. Now both Christchurch and the effected parts of Japan find themselves facing the difficulties and opportunities of rebuilding after significant natural disasters. Please join us on 16 April for PechaKucha Night Christchurch 10 SPECIAL EDITION “Inspire Christchurch” and be a part of Global PechaKucha Day – Inspire Japan. Japan has inspired designers for many generations. It is where PechaKucha Night was born which has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Let's all come together and show Christchurch and Japan that the creative world is thinking of them, that all is not lost, and that it is possible to stand up and rebuild, even in the suburbs and towns which have been completely destroyed. With creativity and passion, anything is possible. THINK / PARTICIPATE / DONATE / INSPIRE On 16 April, many of the 400 PechaKucha cities around the world will come together and hold events, broadcasting out to the world over multiple Ustreams. Here in Christchurch we’ll be holding an event at Addington Coffee Co-op and kick-starting the global event via Ustream. The 20x20 presentations will be focused on 3 main themes INSPIRATION, ISSUES, RECOVERY. They could be simply about things that inspire us, or how Christchurch or Japan has inspired you. Great ideas or solutions that help deal with the issues at hand whether earthquake, tsunami or other natural disaster. Or focusing on the road to recovery. On 16 April hundreds of 20x20 presentations will be made around the world and we hope that you’ll be one of them. If you, or someone you know, are interested in presenting please get in touch.

INSPIRE CHRISTCHURCH

The PechaKucha Global Community sends out some much deserved love and inspiration to Netta, Erica, and our extended family in Christchurch New Zealand, who at this very moment on Mar 2nd 2016, are hosting there 26th Vol. of PKN! Five years ago this week, Christchurch suffered a massive earthquake that rattled their city but not their spirits. When Japan's massive quake occurred just a few short weeks later, Christchurch despite their own tragedy, were the first to PechaKucha shores with blinding support. A true testament of their community's good will.   Even though 5 year have passed, the road to reconstruction continues, reflected in the many PechaKucha presentations about Christchurch rebuilding. And as a very small, and very late but sincere token of our gratitude to their commitment to Japan in our time of need, we're launching INSPIRE CHRISTCHURCH in an effort to keep the spotlight shining on their city.   Share your story of Christchurch with us, and together let's INSPIRE CHRISTCHURCH to it's vibrant self.
