INSPIRE JAPAN Channel

 

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.

In Photohoku 2.0, from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 116, photographers Brian Scott Peterson and Yuko Yoshikawa go into depth on their family photo album re-buidling project, Photohoku. This effort was founded in response to the giant earthquake that shook Japan in 2011 and aims to make new photos of families affected by disaster. It has grown into a global photo-giving, fundraising movement and has spread to the US, the Philippines, Australia, Korea, and many more.
