PechaKucha Maastricht contributes € 1200 to PechaKucha Global Fund

  Mission accomplished!  We at PechaKucha Maastricht are delighted to announce that we have been able to deliver a €1200 contribution to the Global PechaKucha Fund, as a token of gratitude for all the help and good services received from the global PechaKucha organisation in Tokyo over the years. For each ticket sold in 2014-2015, we reserved €1 for the Fund, which was established to support the many initiatives coordinated by the PechaKucha team in Tokyo, including the global PechaKucha website, where each one of the more than 800 PechaKucha cities in the world is able to host its own city page.  PechaKucha Maastricht is very grateful for the exposure it has consistently received on the global PechaKucha website. It has already been selected twice as city of the week, due to the quality of our speakers' presentations, and many of these have been featured as Presentation of the Day on the global PechaKucha homepage. This has been greatly appreciated by our speakers, who saw their ideas and projects being shared with an even bigger worldwide audience. The perfect occasion to personally hand over our contribution came at the end of June when I had the opportunity to travel to Tokyo for professional reasons. What's more, it turned out that the dates of my trip coincided precisely with the date of the PechaKucha event in Tokyo! There were more than 300 PechaKucha fans at Super Deluxe that night and the atmosphere in the room was both relaxed and energetic, with everyone talking and connecting with one another, enjoying the great music by DJ bemsha and eager to listen to the speakers of the night. I particularly enjoyed meeting the Tokyo team - Mark Dytham, Astrid Klein, Johnny Linnert, Mariko Yokogi, Don Kratzer and Brian Scott Peterson - with whom I have been so closely in touch by email but, except for Mark, never spoken face to face!     My turn to present came in the second half of the night. I was introduced both in Japanese and in English by PechaKucha founders Mark and Astrid, who said how pleased they were to welcome a city organiser of PechaKucha Maastricht in Tokyo. In my presentation, I spoke about my family story, including my Japanese origins and I explained why PechaKucha was so important in my life in Maastricht.  When the last slide of my presentation appeared on the screen, I produced the cardboard revealing the donation from the PechaKucha Maastricht community and the entire audience cheered and applauded with enthusiasm. The effect of surprise was complete and Mark and Astrid could not conceal their emotion when they received our contribution. They explained to the audience how much this financial support meant for the PechaKucha organisation and how much it would enhance the Global Fund's ability to develop innovative ways to share the creativity of the PechaKucha community with the world. It was an unforgettable night in Tokyo. And yes, I agree with our friends in Tokyo: PechaKucha Maastricht rocks!   With thanks to Brian for the great pictures!

Extreme Beauty

  "Photography gives me a medium to escape from daily routine life by creating something beautiful" In Extreme Beauty from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 137, Fashion photographer Apple Chua shares in depth how she turned her passion into her career.

City Focus: Visby

Just off the coast of Sweden, this week's City Focus lies on the island of Gotland. Welcome to Visby! This city is arguably the most well-preserved medieval city in Scandinavia with its famous town wall and many church ruins. This UNESCO World Heritage site draws in many visitors every year, and one of its most notable tourists was Hayao Miyuzaki who used Visby as one of the main visual inspirations for the movie Kiki's Delivery Service. The island is only accessible through boat and air traffic, so is it worth it to go? YOU BET! And if you're visiting Visby in the near future, you might be able to catch their very first PechaKucha Night on June 12th at Joda Bar. We can't wait to see what they've got! Good luck, everyone!
