Japan has inspired designers for many generations. Japan is where the "PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds" show-and-tell event format was born, and it has gone on to inspire designers to get together in 400 cities around the world, to share their creativity at more than 1000 events each year.


Japan has inspired us all, now is it our turn to "Inspire Japan."


Please join us on April 16 and be a part of Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan. Let's all come together and show 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 villages and towns which have been completely destroyed. With creativity and passion, anything is possible.

All proceeds will go to Architecture for Humanity for rebuilding Japan. AFH operates globally, and was instrumental in getting projects built after the Indian Ocean Tsunami, Katrina and the Haiti Earthquake.

LIVE BROADCAST TO THE WORLD

On April 16, many of the 400 PechaKucha cities around the world will come together and hold events, broadcasting out to the world and Japan over multipule Ustreams.
