PKN Vienna in the News

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHjlUHsPxL4 You'll need to understand German to completely understand the report, but even for us non-speakers, it's still nice to see the recent PechaKucha Night in Vienna Vol. 8 get some TV coverage on one of that city's news programs.

A Work in Progress

According to the photo above, Eliot Reeves is preparing a PechaKucha presentation, and is having a bit of hard time with it (see middle square). We'll just say this: Eliot, don't give up, the best is to just find 20 great images, and get inspired by that.

Program for PKN Oslo Vol. 11

PechaKucha Night in Oslo Vol. 11 was held a few days ago, and organizer Arpna Gupta Stokke sends in a few photos of the terrific program they prepared for the event. It was produced by graphic design studio Your Friends, and as Arpna explains, tips its hat to the birthcountry of PKN, Japan. The programme has taken its inspiration from Japan, birth place of Pechkucha night. The format is based on standard Japanese paperformats JIS. The traditional Shiroku Ban is the size of the folded out program. The flyers, drink coupons and tickets are also based on the Shiroku Ban format. To get a proper folder for the speakers we've used a origami tecnique which makes it possible to have an 8-page folder without using any binding. It's cost-effective, good for the environment and makes for an intriguing piece of design.

Organizing PKN Panama

PechaKucha Night launched in Panama last night, and the last bit of news we received from the organizers just before the event was that they were expecting a tremendous turnout, due in part to appearances talking about the event on a few radio stations and TV programs. Pictured above is part of that team of organizers, and from left to right you have Beto, Luchin, Juan, Abidel, and Ricardo. Those posters you notice in the background are of course the one we featured on PechaKucha Daily earlier this month.

Haiti Progess Report

As you are probably well aware, all of our "PechaKucha for Haiti" efforts are made possible because of our collaboration with Architecture for Humanity. In this post you'll find the latest Haiti progress report from Cameron Sinclair, with details on how things are going, what is currently needed, and more info on how to volunteer. A lot has been happening in the past several weeks as we establish our Rebuilding Design Center in Port-au-Prince and distribute our manual of earthquake and hurricane construction advice on the ground and online (via the Open Architecture Network). Following are some recent news and needs from the Haiti team. We will be sending out updates regularly as Haiti progress reports. Yes, you can unsubscribe:) See below. Immediate Needs: Currently our field team are looking to fill the following immediate needs urgently. If you can help, please email us. 1) Diesel SUV (any brand, Toyota easiest to repair and maintain in Haiti) 2) Creole/French Speaking Design Fellows. Please see the design fellow opportunity. This is a great opportunity to give back and be a part of the long-term recovery effort. 3) Structural Engineers (on-going). Please sign-up to volunteer if you are interested. 4) House Share: We're considering renting house if you are working in the area and want to share accommodation, please email us. We can let you know what the rates would be. Team on the Ground: Our program management team is currently on the ground in Haiti. It includes two regional program managers.... Learn more. School Site Visits: Work is beginning on the Haiti School Initiative. Our Haiti team recently paid a visit to Cité Soleil–an extremely impoverished neighborhood of Port-au-Prince–to evaluate the conditions of schools affected by the quake... Learn more. StudentsRebuild We're very excited to be partnering with the Bezos Family Foundation and Global Nomads Group to inspire students to support and follow the long-term recovery effort in Haiti. We'll be working with middle and high school students over the coming years. Know a smart kid? Haiti Inflation We're beginning to put together preliminary costing for schools and managing the reconstruction program. Inflation means that our funds will be stretched to the limit. Milk? $12. If you are working on costing, email us and let's share notes. Volunteer Opportunities: Our goal is to invite volunteers to support projects in the field starting in the summer. This is contingent logistics and security on the ground. If you read the cost information above, you'll see that housing and transport are going to be hurdles. If you are interested in going, we'll be sending a followup email with instructions in the coming weeks. Please look out for it. Please Note: Architecture for Humanity's funding is limited. All volunteers will need to cover the costs of their own travel, food and accomodation. More details to come! Volunteer Sign-up: Friends who are interested? Let them know how to sign-up. We'll add them to this email.
