Just 4 weeks after the events of 3/11 in Japan, the worldwide PechaKucha community came together to "Inspire Japan." Over $85,000 was raised for Architecture for Humanity and ArchiAid during a non-stop 24-hour PechaKucha event that circled the globe. The process of re-growth is ongoing, and presentations will continue to be added as we continue to inspire.
Our 2012 global event had the goal of celebrating every PechaKucha Night city, worldwide. It was a weeklong celebration (February 20-26) that brought all PechaKucha organizers, presenters, and attendees together, with a focus on highlighting all of the amazing cities that make up the global PechaKucha community.
We've had people of all ages do presentations in the PechaKucha 20x20 format, and that includes kids. Here is a collection of presentations we've shared on the site that were done by children in cities all over the world.
Mini matches the fast paced fun of PechaKucha. These 20x20 PechaKucha presentations from all around the world explore the creativity which is now synonymous with the Mini brand - from Paul Smith to Rinpa Eshidan
"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.
Once a year on February 20th — the anniversary of PechaKucha’s founding — we celebrate the proliferation of worldwide creativity, and the amazing interconnectedness of cities from all over. PechaKucha Global Night is a coming together — a time where we recognise that each PechaKucha Night is not alone, but part of something greater. Find a PechaKucha Night in your city and join in the global festivities!

PechaKucha in Milan
PechaKucha was in Milan last month (April 2012) for the Milano Salone (Milan Design Week), with a series of four PechaKucha events held at Heineken's temporary club space (designed by up-and-coming creators who were selected through a series of PechaKucha events in four cities). In this presentation, Jean gives you a taste of what the events were like, and slips in a few design week-related slides as well.

Arab Image Foundation
Hala Tawil talks about the Arab Image Foundation, dedicated to the collection, preservation and study of photography from the Middle East, North Africa and the Arab Diaspora. The tale of a foundation that acts as an open resource for research, scholarly, artistic and curatorial initiatives, engaging in the study and critical inquiry of photographic and archival practices. Inspiring!
BY THE PAINT BOX. KRI FOUNDATION
@ VOL 9
ON MAY 07, 2016
"One way of using public space is to misuse it. But the other way of using it is to actually be innovative, and there are a lot of fun ways to go about doing it."
In Kri Foundation from PechaKucha Night Chennai Vol. 9, Namrata talks about how the Kri Foundation uses art to transform the city's neglected spaces. She shares on the power of art in revamping not only the physical walls of a city, but also the way the community uses it.
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, August 24th, 2016.

Mark Hoekstra PechaKucha Award
Today, September 20, we mark the passing of a dear friend of the PechaKucha family, Mark Hoeskstra, with a very special announcement, and the first public project from the PechaKucha Foundation. Read on for full details on the "Mark Hoekstra PechaKucha Award." Mark liked to ‘get his geek on’ and his blog GEEKtechnique.org showed the world how to get its collective geek on. Whether an iPod charger for his bicycle, a love-toy made from hacked Ikea products or his iNoPhone collection -- Mark inspired many with his amazing creativity which he so generously shared. PechaKucha Night met Mark, as you would expect, online and shortly after PechaKucha Night Groningen was born with the first event held in October 2006. PechaKucha Nights were held all over the city in old churches, department stores -- Mark and PechaKucha even made it onto national TV. Sadly and very unexpectedly Mark passed away on September 20th, 2008. He was 34. To celebrate Mark’s life and his passion for the GEEK in us all the PechaKucha Foundation and the PechaKucha Groningen team are launching the annual ‘Mark Hoekstra PechaKucha Award’ today, one year after he passed away, to find the person with the most GEEK technique! This award seeks to celebrate projects, ideas that express 'GEEK technique' to make the world a better, simpler and funnier place. We will be looking for PechaKucha presentations that are pro-social, pro-environment and pro-city and embody Mark’s love for the geek. Explore Mark’s amazing blog for inspiration! Full details of the award, judging system and how to upload your presentations will be announced in January when the website for the award is launched. We are working with several wonderful sponsors to bring this project to fruition. If you would like to support the project in any way please feel free to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org

Poster for PKN Quito Vol. 4
PechaKucha Night in Quito Vol. 4 is coming up later this month (October 18) at El Aguijon, and here are more details from organizer Francisco Mejia:The event will be held on the same day that DETONARTE (international street art festival) begins. Because of this, we will have special guests from the festival that will share their talent and work at PKN Quito Vol.4. The entry fee is 6$, and we are also encouraging the public to donate educational material to help a foundation called Cecilia Rivadeneira Foundation. This foundation works with kids affected by cancer and their families. The donation will replace the entry fee. I wanted to dedicate this Vol.4 to a dear friend who recently passed away because of cancer.
PechaKucha Around the Web
There's a lot of talk on all things PechaKucha around the web, with posts on blogs, PechaKucha cities that share info on their own sites, photos, and much more, and so we're kicking off a regular series of posts with links of interest to the PK community -- and if you have a link to share, do let us know!Call For Entries: AIGA Detroit Invites Artists, Architects, Photographers and Designers to Present at PechaKucha Night Detroit (Digital Journal)LIFE Inspiration by PechaKucha (Utah Heritage Foundation)Halloween PechaKucha in SLC (NewCityMovement)PechaKucha -- Made in Brunel 2011 (Vimeo)

The Tabitha Foundation in Cambodia and Behind the Scenes of PKN Barcelona
In this presentation (from PKN Dunsborough Vol. 4), Dianne Parker talks about her passion project: an upcoming journey to volunteer with the Tabitha Foundation in Cambodia to build much needed homes for displaced families. Benjamin Julve has been documenting PechaKucha Nights in Barcelona since the series' inception in 2008. This is a special "behind the scenes" presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Barcelona Vol. 14) that includes just a few of the hundreds of photos he has taken so far.
Viva La Pedestrian Revolution
One luchador keeping the streets of Mexico safe, one pedestrian at a time. Peatónito leaves home with his wrestler mask and a black cape looking for rude drivers. His goal: to defend -- using peaceful methods -- pedestrians from the traffic chaos of Mexico City. What have we done to get to the point where we cannot walk peacefully around the city? We need a pedestrian revolution. In "Viva La Pedestrian Revolution" from PKN Mexico City Vol. 35, we see that infrastructure, culture, and law enforcement must be re-thought to make the city more people-centered.
Innovation through Play
Check out this amazingly inventive project from PechaKucha Urban Innovation Month chosen by the New Cities Foundation to speak at the WhatWorks speakers series at this year's New Cities Summit, to be held this June 17-19 in Dallas, Texas. Co-founder at Daily Tous Les Jours Mouna Andraos shows us several of her interactive design studio's delightful projects; all of which involve creating spaces for people to come together, play, and collaborate. In "Innovation through Play" from PechaKucha Urban Innovation Month in collaboration with the New Cities Foundation/WhatWorks we see that from giant, 100-person sing-along installations, to swings that play notes as you swing back and forth, these projects transform the way citizens interact with their cities and one another.
Mark Dytham at New Cities Summit
You'll remember our partnership with the New Cities Foundation in which we launched an "Urban Innovation" themed month, with the goal of sending up to two presenters to take part in this month's New Cities Summit -- we announced the winners in this post.
