From Tokyo to the World

BY ASTRID KLEIN
@ VOL 55 ON FEB 09, 2016

Astrid Klein & Mark Dytham, PechaKucha Founders, special guests from PechaKucha HQ, Tokyo

Mark and Astrid introduce the concept of PechaKucha  - in ten years this format of seminars has spread to over 900 cities. They have about 120 events every month, and around 500 000 people attend these events. 

PechaKucha is about being positive. Mark and Astrid speak about the positive outcome of the horrible earthquake in Tōhoku in 2011, where a million people were dislodged and 7000 people lost their homes. To help restore the community, architect Toyo Ito built a new kind of community center called The Home For All – a place where people can meet each other, a place to hang out and a place for kids to play.
