A Message from Cameron Sinclair

We include here a message from Architecture for Humanity founder Cameron Sinclair that should give everyone a better idea of what the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" event really means, what's at stake, and how you can participate. Haiti Fatigue. It’s a phrase we will begin to hear over the next few weeks. The fact is more people died in Haiti than in the 12 countries affected by the ‘04 Tsunami. Oh, and rainy season begins in 8 days. So this natural disaster IS a big deal and it’s going to get rough. We are not the first responders, we’re the last responders and we’re in for the long haul. We estimate having teams in Haiti for 4 years but we will only do that with the financial support of others. Thanks to the amazing Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein we’re going to change that. We are one week away from launching Pecha Kucha for Haiti – the worlds largest distributed conference. This will be a 24 hour Pecha Kucha (20x20 style) in more than 100 cities – with 2000 presentations. 100% of all donations/proceeds will go towards building schools and community centers in Haiti. I’d love it if you got involved in some way. We are looking for a few more (local) speakers? With more than 100 cities participating there is no need to fly, no dodgy hotel to overnight in and no lost luggage. We’re making all speakers local. You live in NYC, then speak in NYC, If you are in Zilina, Czech – sorry it’s full! | Can’t find your city and are very ambitious? – email Mark Dytham and host one. *personally after doing DLD, Davos and TED, I’m excited by a conference that doesn’t require 1000+ to fly from one corner of the earth to another. Could this be the future of conferences? What does a presentation look like? Maori, The culture of my land Made in Deptford The Story So Far (about PK) Duct Tape Type Face We are looking for ‘virtual’ presentations? So you are busy, we understand. Mark and Astrid have a cunning plan. Thanks to sponsors Ustream and Rackspace we can pre-record a presentation and we can show it as we move around the world. Brian LeBarton (Beck) & Francesco Valentino just composed one – music only. Spare 400 or 20 seconds? You can be brave and do a full 20x20 (20 slides x 20 seconds = 6 min 40 sec) OR if you are really, really busy – just contribute 20 seconds of audio (and we’ll put in a slide). You can just say something like ‘I’m TKTK and do TKTK. I care about creating a sustainable and economically sound future for Haiti. Let’s Build Back Better with Architecture for Humanity.’ OK, what about someone else's time? You all know famous designers, engineers, musicians, artists and other creative spirits. Even celebrities. Admit it. Heck, NYC has Florian Idenburg, Gregg Pasquarelli, Craig Dykers and Iwan Baan to name a few – all talking about what they know best. What’s your city got? Why so serious? Look it is our job to be serious. We are immensely fortunate to work alongside communities and build their hopes and dreams. The work isn’t depressing, it is awesome. If you want to present, please be upbeat and speak on the sublime to the ridiculous. No one wants 24 hours of depressing visions, that’s called CNN. So seriously. Entertain, inspire and most importantly – be passionate. To present email me and I’ll connect you to the right people. To pre-record email Mark Dytham. To attend, show up and make a donation. By the way this email took you 6 min 40 seconds to read. So you do have the time!

PechaKucha for Haiti on Treehugger

Treehugger has a piece up on tomorrow's "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" event -- it's written by PKN Barcelona organizer Petz Scholtus, who will also be hosting an event that evening -- and includes some interesting details on what an "online" event like this can mean in terms of its impact on the environment. So on Saturday, around 2000 presentations will be held in 24 hours around the globe, which has to be world largest distributed conference ever, and more so, with the least amount of CO2 being emitted as everyone is speaking locally in their own city. No one has to get on a plane to present, and most events are accessible by public transport. Those who don't have a PKN held nearby, can simply tune in on the PechaKucha Presentation WAVE, where all the cities are joined by a presentation relay, broadcast on what the PKN founder Astrid and Mark just named a global WAVEcast! You can watch the whole thing via Ustream.

We're live, currently streaming from around the world -- see us on the front page of the PechaKucha site and here on Ustream. Here are a few quick shots of "mission control" on the 3rd floor of the Audi Building (the "Iceberg") in Tokyo, right now.

PKN Barcelona for Haiti

Not only do we get some great photos by Benjamin Julve -- with more to see in this Flickr photoset -- but here's also a rundown by organizer Petz Scholtus of this past Saturday's Haiti event in Barcelona, sent out as a newsletter to that city's mailing list. Last Saturday (20. Feb), all the hard work of organising a PechaKucha Night in Barcelona in less than 4 weeks paid off. PechaKucha Vol. 8 was a very special night with speakers that made us think, made us laugh or triggered curiosity, moved us and even taught us how to be sexy! The most beautiful thing about the event though, is the participation of many people towards one goal: raise money for Architecture for Humanity (AFH) and the reconstruction in Haiti. In Barcelona alone, we raised over 2.300€, yay! Within the next few days, we should know how much the more than 150 cities raised together in "PechaKucha for Haiti" this month! If you haven’t yet or feel generous again, please donate here. It all started on Saturday around 15:00 when Mark and Astrid (the incredible founders of PechaKucha) kicked of the global 24-hour WAVEcast via Ustream. At 18.30 the Barcelona PechaKucha took place at La Sedeta, who offered us the space for free so that all the money from the entrance tickets could go towards AFH. Giovanna Carnevali, an architect from Barcelona-based Architecture for Humanity Spain, kicked of the night with her presentation about the work AFH does in Haiti, as well as some projects the local chapter is working on. Next up was Chené Gómez, who spoke about his NGO Creart, and how it feels to be teaching art to kids in difficult situations (Palestina, India, Thailand after the Tsunami). Martí Guixé, ex-designer, presented his business models, such as “pfic bar,” a frozen public fountain that turns into a bar chilling drinks, or the “Liquid Menu Restaurant,” where as you might guess, all the dishes are liquid, and inspired by the Spanish gazpacho. When our stomach muscles were already hurting from so much laughter, Michelle Felip showed us her project “Pixing” (pronounce ‘pishing’), which campaigns for decent public toilets in Barcelona, also for girls! Xavi Padrós showed beautiful photographs called “anonyms.” The photos were of clever, funny and ingenious bothed jobs Padrós collected over the year in Barcelona. To finish of the first part of the night, Lily introduced us to the art of striptease and even taught us a few moves! After the beer break (thanks to Estrella Damm we had all our costs such as cleaning and security covered!), Gerard Sanmartí from La Granja design Studio, showed a ‘real’ project he did some years ago, of an exhibition design with floating pieces of art. Then, Jessica Leung took us on her personal journey from making movies in LA and quitting Hollywood in order to start Dos Velas with her partner Paco, to make documentaries in close contact with people of different cultures and ethics around the world. Architect Toni Solana presented his project of the Fábrica del Sol, an 8-year-long project of a eco-friendly renovation of an old gas factory, respecting the four elements of water, fire, earth and wind. Dress for Success, shown by Stephany Baskin, DfS Austin founder, is the story of how a woman gained back her self-esteem and changed her life by being given a dress along with a few tips for a job interview. A big dose of Catalan humour was handed to us by designer Marcel Fernández, and his curious story of how Amanito was born. To finish of the night, Ricardo Fernández, organizer of PechaKucha in Panamá, explained why his country is the country of steroids, and why the Panamanians wear a lot of clothes in winter (even if winter in Panama doesn’t exists!) Last but not least, Maximilian Kamenar from Pecha Kucha Vienna who also happened to be in town, greeted the very lively and cheerful audience. All through the last presentations, Doris and Victor from On i On, together with Aniol and Leonor from Ecogent, were waiting to join the live-streaming WAVEcast via PechaKucha Tokyo, but unfortunately we missed each other. We were however, connected by spirit and want to give kudos to Mark and Astrid, Tomoko and Jean and their team in Tokyo for organising this international Pecha Kucha x Haiti with so much enthusiasm and energy! Barcelona enjoys being part of the big picture! Thank you to everyone who donated to AFH and made it to our eighth PechaKucha in Barcelona, to the speakers who did an amazing job, to La Sedeta and Estrella Damm and to Tree-Nation for planting a tree for each speaker in order to reduce our event’s ecological footprint and to all our friends who helped out. We hope to see you in April for Vol. 9! And it was a PechaKucha reunion of sorts as well with, pictured below (from left) Ricardo from PK Panama, two members from the team bringing PK to Bilbao (coming soon), and Maximilan from PK Vienna.

Inspire Christchurch

Although the focus of our upcoming Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan fundraiser, we have not forgotten our friends in Christchurch, and we are very happy to announce that PKN Christchurch organizer Vanessa Coxhead and her team will be kicking off the whole event. We include here a press release from Vanessa that details the Christchurch event. PKN_CHCH_10 SPECIAL EDITION “Inspire Christchurch” Kick-starting Global PechaKucha Day – Inspire Japan Saturday 16 April 2011 Doors open 7.30pm / start 8.20pm Addington Coffee Co-op 297 Lincoln Road Addington Entry by koha. All funds raised on the night will be distributed to Architecture for Humanity's current rebuilding effort in Christchurch and the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal. Limited capacity. Cash bar only. On 22 February, as Christchurch was preparing to rebuild after the 4 September Canterbury Earthquake, the earth shook and again we have found ourselves in recovery mode, mourning the loss of lives, livelihoods, beloved places and spaces, our much loved heritage and our homes. Then on 11 March, Japan suffered an earthquake and tsunami that destroyed 400km of coastline, killed over 10,000 people, left 400,000 people homeless, and triggered a nuclear situation that is still unfolding. Now both Christchurch and the effected parts of Japan find themselves facing the difficulties and opportunities of rebuilding after significant natural disasters. Please join us on 16 April for PechaKucha Night Christchurch 10 SPECIAL EDITION “Inspire Christchurch” and be a part of Global PechaKucha Day – Inspire Japan. Japan has inspired designers for many generations. It is where PechaKucha Night was born which has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Let's all come together and show Christchurch and Japan that the creative world is thinking of them, that all is not lost, and that it is possible to stand up and rebuild, even in the suburbs and towns which have been completely destroyed. With creativity and passion, anything is possible. THINK / PARTICIPATE / DONATE / INSPIRE On 16 April, many of the 400 PechaKucha cities around the world will come together and hold events, broadcasting out to the world over multiple Ustreams. Here in Christchurch we’ll be holding an event at Addington Coffee Co-op and kick-starting the global event via Ustream. The 20x20 presentations will be focused on 3 main themes INSPIRATION, ISSUES, RECOVERY. They could be simply about things that inspire us, or how Christchurch or Japan has inspired you. Great ideas or solutions that help deal with the issues at hand whether earthquake, tsunami or other natural disaster. Or focusing on the road to recovery. On 16 April hundreds of 20x20 presentations will be made around the world and we hope that you’ll be one of them. If you, or someone you know, are interested in presenting please get in touch. You can email me at vanessa@pechakucha.co.nz or contact me on 027 660 6437. Find a city near you and attend or watch on Ustream. Donate at the door or online.
