Powered by PechaKucha Channel

"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.

The Power of Twenty - For Haiti

@ VOL 68 ON JAN 27, 2010

20th February - Save the date - We are planning a PechaKucha Global Day for Haiti. 200 cities, 2000 presenters, 200,000 participants. Look to local city sites for more info - and how to participate - The global map on geolocates around you. If you have a idea, a system, product anything creative that could help Haiti let us know we want this to become a database of wonderful information! Please come back to the site daily - for updates. Thanks you so much - the global PechaKucha family



@ VOL 68 ON JAN 27, 2010

Brian LeBarton and Francesco Valentino have never met. The terrible tragedy in Haiti has brought them together by fate for this moving presentation. Brian LeBarton is a composer and keyboardist for Beck - and we had been chatting to him about musicians performing over 20 images 20 slides for PechaKucha presentations. Francesco Valentino is a film maker and photograher who we knew through a chance meeting in Tokyo. Only a few days ago when we had this idea of PechaKucha for Haiti, Brian stepped forward and said he would compose and play something for us - at the same time we bumped into someone who said Francesco was in Haiti trying to find his family and had been taking some moving shots as events unfurled. Sadly he didn't find all the lives he was looking for. This a poignant first PechaKucha presentation for Haiti. Thank you Brian, thank you Francesco - and thank you Joey and Corrie for making this happen. Please spread the word about this initiative and our Global PechaKucha Day on 20th February - and please click the donate button. Many other bands are working with us. If you are a photographer or have any other images of Haiti past or present you want to share - we will be happy to match you with a musician. Please get in touch Unlike anything else out there in this world of visual entertainment the PechaKucha Presentation Player allows you look, listen and think. Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham PechaKucha founders

Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti, One Year On


What a difference a year makes. Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti raised over $80,000 on the 20th February 2010 for Architecture for Humanity. Our aim was to raise enough money to rebuild one of the devastated schools in Haiti, so today, one year on we are very proud to say that dream is becoming a reality. Thanks to all the amazing efforts of Cameron Sinclair and Architecture for Humanity they have begun to rebuild schools in Haiti, one of which is directly funded by Global PechaKucha Day. To mark the occasion, and let you see progress Cameron has put together an update, in a 20x20 presentation, where you can see the design for the Ecole La Dignite, the school you have funded, taking shape. After you have watched the presentation you will understand that the money we raised has been put to use very effectively. If you can we encourage you all to continue to support the long haul AFH mission mission in Haiti, you can find the pages here.

What Is PechaKucha?


PechaKucha founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham walk us through the phenomenon that is PechaKucha, explain how it started, and what the global community looks like now. They also touch on the special kids workshop that was done on the same day as this presentation, as part of the "Design-ah exhibition." (in Japanese)

PechaKucha for Haiti on PKD

As we enter February, and now less than three weeks away from the "PechaKucha Global Night for Haiti," we're going to concentrate coverage here at PechaKucha Daily on the worldwide event, and all of the things happening in the weeks leading to it. As you'll soon see, there's going to be a lot of activity on the site, with a huge ramp up of presentations going online (we're hoping to get as many as we can uploaded), to be accompanied with donation buttons, with all proceeds going to reconstruction projects in Haiti (through Architecture for Humanity). So stay tuned, and prepare to be amazed by what the PechaKucha community will be producing.


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.


Australian Design Review

Big thanks go out to the Australian Design Review for bringing attention to the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti," with a piece that also points out that Sydney will indeed be one of the participating cities -- to be held at the MCA.


PKN Caracas + Haiti

Caracas will not only be joining the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" on the 20th, the event will also act as the city's Vol. 1! It will take place at Bar 205, starting at 19:00.


The Goal of the Reconstruction Efforts

As we've already mentioned a few times -- and you'll find more details on the "PechaKucha for Haiti" page -- all of these events are to raise money to help with reconstruction in Haiti, with the focus being on education projects, schools, and the like. Just to give you an idea of what has happened, here are a few new statistics from Concern Worldwide US Operations Director Dominic Macsorley, delivered through Twitter: 4,616 schools surveyed, 80% damaged 431 teachers killed 4,000 students killed 250,000 school children displaced As you'll probably agree, these numbers are overwhelming, and UN numbers have over 8,000 schools destroyed. You'll find more data at the Haiti Education Cluster page.


Where to Watch?

For anyone still not sure about where you'll be able to follow the live stream of the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" tomorrow (February 20), you'll be able to do so from the front page of this very site. As we are supported by Ustream -- who is making sure that the stream will be able to handle the high number of people we're expecting to check in -- the stream will also be featured on the front page of the Ustream website. But even better for those of you not at home when it all happens, you'll be able to follow the entire broadcast on your iPhone and Android phone, using the free Ustream Viewer Application.


PechaKucha for Haiti Ending Highlight

As the entire PechaKucha team slowly recuperates from this past weekend's amazing Haiti event -- and that means everyone in Tokyo, and everyone who participated in the live PechaKucha WAVE somewhere in the world -- here's a look at how things wound down at the end. Expect lots of coverage here over the next few days, but we did want by share this video highlight of how the event ended, featuring Mark thanking everyone.


John Manoochehri

Our second presentation highlight for the day comes to us courtesy of John Manoochehri, as he explains in 20 images just how to "Unmake Me Whole" -- it was first presented as part of the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti." We make too much stuff, and that stuff uses too many of our precious resources. How do we unmake the world around us? Another amazingly powerful presentation.


The Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti, One Year Later

February 20 not only marks PechaKucha's anniversary -- the eighth no less -- but it also marks exactly one year since last year's Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti, a worldwide event that was held to raise funds for reconstruction efforts in Haiti, with the help of Architecture for Humanity. Today we're happy to share a special presentation by Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair, as an update on what has been achieved over the past year.
