The Tohoku Effect
BY MARK DYTHAM
“When the Haiti earthquake struck, we ran an event around the world on 24 hour skype. A Year later, the shoe was on the other foot; the earthquake happened in Japan. 105 cities got together within 3 weeks and we held an Inspire Japan Event.”
From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Speaker and PechaKucha founder Mark Dytham presents "The Tohoku Effect" on PechaKucha’s and PechaKucha Inspire’s history. No one could have predicted that the small one-off event would balloon into a popular presentation format to be used the world over. PechaKucha Certainly has its perks; It’s free, It’s simple, it lets people give their work exposure. Most importantly of all, it builds community. It is such communities that come together when tragedies strike and help build warm spaces.
