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.
117 PechaKucha Night cities came together to raise money for reconstruction in Haiti on the 20th of February, 2010, just 4 weeks after the earthquake. Raising $79,000 for Architecture for Humanity, the money has helped build a school, which opened in November of 2011.

The Recovery Revolution: Building Tribe in a Disconnected World
BY RAYNARD PACKARD
We have found ourselves in the throes of an epidemic, the likes of which we have not seen in modern times. While overdose deaths rage on, we continue to respond with a system of care so broken, with resources so painfully thin, for folks with a severity of problems so complex - we are tossing folks into a chasm that is fundamentally designed to make them fail - and when they do fail - what do we do? We cage them. We take their children away. We rob them of their very humanity. Fortunately, pockets of resistance are forming, and together - we have launched the Recovery Revolution.

Aarhus-based artist Ulrik Myrtue is back at Pecha Kucha Aarhus to talk about "Eco activism", which it should not be named. What he's really doing is fighting for our future, so why not call it that?
Ulrik shows and tells us his path to becoming an animal rights activist and how that can land you in jail for a few hours. But all worth it to save the planet!

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.
As we kick off a new week of presentation highlights -- you do know that we have a terrific "Presentations" section on the site, right? -- with "Sketch Book of Life," presented by Martin Willers at PechaKucha Night in Stockholm Vol. 21. An amazing presentation of sketches, which show how to use the inspiration of life to lift the possibilities of humanity to new heights! Brilliant -- thanks Martin!
Our First School!
I'll invite you to visit the "PechaKucha for Haiti" section of the site for more details -- yes, we are still updating that page with the latest news, including adding links to Haiti-related presentations that have gone online -- but we're very happy to announce that the funds raised so far have paid for a new school! Today - 20 days later - it gives us great pride in announcing that the PechaKucha global network of cities, organizers, presenters and fans has raised over $60,000 which allows Architecture For Humanity to build the first PechaKucha School in Haiti.
Here's a presentation (in Spanish) from PechaKucha Night in Barcelona Vol. 8, with Giovanna Carnevali of the Spain chapter of Architecture for Humanity covering some of the Haiti reconstruction efforts, as well as a few other projects.
The Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti, One Year Later
February 20 not only marks PechaKucha's anniversary -- the eighth no less -- but it also marks exactly one year since last year's Global PechaKucha Day for Haiti, a worldwide event that was held to raise funds for reconstruction efforts in Haiti, with the help of Architecture for Humanity. Today we're happy to share a special presentation by Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair, as an update on what has been achieved over the past year.
Humanity and the Environment
There will be a one-off PechaKucha event happening this Wednesday (April 27) at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). Organized by the Avant-Gardening Club, the theme is "Humanity and the Environment," and you'll find the list of presenters on the flyer above.
Our First School!
During the "PechaKucha Day for Haiti," we were able to raise $80,000 for Architecture for Humanity. Their work went into high gear in 2011, and we were extremely proud to see the construction of the school, École La Dignité, that PechaKucha funded along with the Stiller Foundation -- it opened on November 7, 2011. Thank you everyone who supported PechaKucha for Haiti and a massive thank you to Cameron Sinclair and his team for making the school a reality.
Health of Africa
In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Memphis, TN Vol. 6), graduate student Susannah Acuff talks about her journey from pre-med to anthropology. She began by shadowing her grandfather, a physician, in free clinics, and examined the cultural opinions and use of health care and insurance, which eventually led her to Africa, where she examined alternative models for health insurance, instead of the for-profit model found in the United States.
Poster for PKN Chicago Vol. 29 by Max Temkin
Chances are you've heard of Cards Against Humanity -- and if so, chances are you've had a hell of a good time playing it -- and so we were very excited to see that not only is the game's creator, Max Temkin, presentating at Chicago's upcoming PechaKucha Night Vol. 29, but he also designed the event poster! If you're in Chicago on March 4, you know where you need to be.
