PechaKucha for Haiti
We've all been seeing the terrible images coming from Haiti following the tragic earthquake that hit the nation earlier this month, and we can assure you that everyone here at team PechaKucha is readying something that we hope will help with the reconstruction efforts. The full project will be announced this Wednesday both at the scheduled PechaKucha Night in Tokyo, and by Cameron Sinclair of Architecture for Humanity at the World Economic Forum in Davos -- and you can bet that we'll be covering it here as well, so check back then for more details.
Seeing Double at PKN Victoria
Above is an intriguing photo from the last PechaKucha Night in Victoria (Vol. 3), taken by local photographer BigTinySmalls. As requested by organizer Elisa Yon, it will soon be adorning the PechaKucha Night city loop -- that's the loop of city photos you see at the start (and sometimes during the beer break) of PKNs. Also take note that PKN Victoria Vol. 4 happens later this month (November 25) at the Victoria Event Centre -- you'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.
