The Resurrection of Christchurch
BY NETTA EGOZ
@ VOL 134
ON MAR 18, 2016
In The Resurrection of Christchurch from PKN Tokyo's Vol. 134 Pow Wow Special, PechaKucha Night Christchurch Organisers Netta Egoz and Erica Austin use the 17 PKNs since the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes as a means to document the social rebuild of the city. The events move from temporary buildings to pop up public spaces and finally back to permanent buildings as the city reopens and rebuilds. Each event showcases a different venue, designer, photographer, and the speakers often talk about their ideas for a better city which are now collated under the Inspire Christchurch channel!
This was "Presentation of the Day" on Easter Sunday, March 27th, 2016.

And here's another presentation from the Chicago/Champaign-Urbana edition of last month's "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" event, this time with Amanda Roelle talking about her experience as she contributed to the rebuilding efforts in Thailand after the 2004 "Boxing Day" tsunami.
Our second presentation from Phoenix's "Global PechaKucha Night in Haiti" event is "Rebuilding after Katrina" by Mark Ryan, showing off what a group of motivated students can do. Also, please note that we've added presentation listings on each city's PechaKucha Night landing page, so you'll now be be able to find all online presentations from a particular PKN city that way as well.
Zwai and Phillip
Our final presentation from PechaKucha Night in Johannesburg Vol. 5 is a bit of an irreverent one -- OK, maybe actually QUITE irreverent -- with Zwai and Phillip sharing with us "Rebuilding, the African Way." We hope it puts a smile on your face. You can see more presentation from Johannesburg in that city's section of the "Presentations" area.
Here's a presentation (in Spanish) from PechaKucha Night in Barcelona Vol. 8, with Giovanna Carnevali of the Spain chapter of Architecture for Humanity covering some of the Haiti reconstruction efforts, as well as a few other projects.
PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 3
Here are a few photos from the recent PechaKucha Night in Springfield, MO Vol. 3 -- held in what looks like a really fun space (the Historic Firehouse No. 2) -- as well as a report from organizer Amanda Taylor. The full list of presenters with links appears in the official event page.PechaKucha Night Vol. 3 went really well. We had about 110 people in attendance with 8 presenters. After the devastating tornado that destroyed 1/3 of Joplin, Missouri (one hour from Springfield) in May, we have shifted our focus from Inspire Japan to Joplin fundraising as it is a desperate regional need. Springfield's local chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) are working closely with the City of Joplin for rebuilding efforts, and they need as much community support as possible. PKN Vol. 3 raised $100 for AIA Springfield in the support of the City of Joplin's planning, zoning, and rebuilding efforts. Our next PechaKucha Night will be focused on raising funds for Joplin's rebuilding efforts through AIA Springfield, on September 23.
Your Guide to Role-Playing, Rebuilding in Tohoku, and a Photo Gallery Explosion
Presentations A Bangor native with a passion for weird and creative things, Chris Pierce has been a star "Dungeon Master" -- the person who directs a session of a role-playing game -- at the annual SnowCon Gaming Convention in Orono for the past 4 years. His enthusiasm and love of tabletop gaming is addictive -- and shines through in this presentation from PKN Bangor, ME Vol. 4 -- and he’s been known to convince many a "noob" to sit in on a game of Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow. In this presentation (in Japanese, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92), architects Daisuke Sugawara and Masayuki Harada describe a reconstruction project they've been working on, to help rebuild in the Tohoku region. As you'll see, they've been trying to rebuild villages, to keep the community together. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, one for next month's PKN St. Louis Vol. 9 (pictured above) and one for the upcoming PKN Moscow Vol. 19 (it's not listed on the official site yet, but it should be added soon).

Rebuilding the Future of Nepal
"We cannot control nature. It does what it does. However we can control human nature and our ability to work together in the face of these odds." In Rebuilding the Future of Nepal, from our Inspire Nepal Channel, Nevo Shinaar shares the story of his involvement in the Earthquake in Nepal in 2015. After committing for 10 month's work as a volunteer in Nepal, aimed to help rural communities become more resilient to globalisation and external changes, and to enhance their quality of life, Shinaar had such a meaningful experience that he decided to stay longer and facilitate a new group of volunteers. Within another 8 months, the ravaging earthquake sent the entire country into a state of disarray particularly the very communities with with whom he'd be working. In trying to address the needs of these communities in ways that were most relevant and effective he learned some life lessons, and shares them with us here.
