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: info@pecha-kucha.org

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.

Haiti-school

Our First School!

During the "PechaKucha Day for Haiti," we were able to raise $80,000 for Architecture for Humanity. Their work went into high gear in 2011, and we were extremely proud to see the construction of the school, École La Dignité, that PechaKucha funded along with the Stiller Foundation -- it opened on November 7, 2011. Thank you everyone who supported PechaKucha for Haiti and a massive thank you to Cameron Sinclair and his team for making the school a reality.
