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.
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.
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.
"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.
SuperDeluxe the birth place of PechaKucha Night is: a place of experimentation, a noisy thing, an intimate ballroom with wholesome food, a network of all sorts, a place to enjoy, and a place to enjoy others.
PechaKucha teamed up with 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT as part of the "Design Ah!" exhibition to produce two special events on March 23rd. One for kids, where they made and presented their 20x20s in an open workshop. The other for 'grown-ups' was part of Roppongi Art Night, and featured an inspiring lineup of design talent.
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!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
BY CAMERON SINCLAIR
IN SAN FRANCISCO
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.

The Joseph School in Haiti
BY KENNON CALHOUN
James Kennon speaks about his work with The Joseph School in Haiti. On the island of Haiti of the 9.2 million people, 80% live below the International Poverty Line equating to 7.4 million people with an average income of less than $2 per day. Haiti is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere. The most impactful way to help Haiti is to empower them to help themselves. Leadership changes everything.
From MechaKucha to PechaKucha!

ON JUN 24, 2015
"PechaKucha embraces all the Mechakucha-jin of the world to come and share their ideas!"
Hailing from the Netherlands, Sueli Brodin, editor at the United Nations University, PechaKucha's Maastricht organiser, and our dear friend, pays a visit to Pechakucha Night Tokyo to deliver this compelling presentation at SuperDeluxe about, of all things, PechaKucha!
Growing up very multiculturally (Dutch, French, Brazillian, Japanese), and having lived in Japan for part of her youth, she describes herself as a “Mechakucha-jin” - a hybrid word that borrows from Japanese, evoking an image of per person who is "all-jumbled up." Sueli talks about her personal background and how after years of never quite fitting in, she found a home in the PechaKucha team of Maastricht. She shares her gratitude for Pechkucha and how it continues to offer a home for people like her, and a global stage to everyone wishing to inspire others with their “mechakucha” side.
WOW! How inspiring! Thanks Sueli! We Love You!
This was "Presentation of the Day" on July 17, 2015.

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.
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.
PechaKucha School in Haiti
On the 20th of February 2010, the 7th anniversary of PechaKucha Night, 117 cities came together on a single day and held events across the globe to support Architecture for Humanity's plans for rebuilding in Haiti. Other PechaKucha events for Haiti during February took this total to 174, and with cities still holding PKN events for Haiti in March this total topped 200. Today -- 20 days later -- it gives us great pride in announcing that the PechaKucha global network of cities, organizers, presenters and fans has raised over $60,000 which allows Architecture For Humanity to build the first PechaKucha School in Haiti. This just in from Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair: Our team arrived in Haiti last week, and we will know more about specific costs in the next few weeks. Our preliminary estimates for school costs are:Basic Costs Main Teaching Blocks (3) $30,000Toilet Block (1) $5,000Cafeteria $15,000Teachers Room $5,000 Landscaping/Reforestation $5,000 Total: $60,000 We will know more about volunteer needs also in the next few weeks but probably won't have volunteers there until the summer or later, so we will keep you posted on this. Really looking forward to seeing all the 100s of presentations online in the next few weeks. Good luck with the uploading! Thank you for organizing such an amazing event!
