The World Marathon Majors

BY STEPHEN FERGUSON
@ VOL 12 ON APR 25, 2019

"My running career started in 2011 when I accidentally caught diabetes and so my first job was to buy a pair of running shoes and sign-up for a couch to 5k."

Stephen Ferguson talks to us about the challenge of running his first marathon and that this inspired him to continue running and be awarded the World Marathon Majors, a medal won by fewer people than have climbed Mount Everest.

Inspired by Nepal, a Langtang Ago

BY BRIAN SCOTT PETERSON
IN TOKYO

Prior to establishing himself in Tokyo over a decade ago, Brian Scott Peterson made a trip half way around the world to, in his words "the mystifyingly scenic", country of Nepal. In a wonderlust quest for "adventure of most epic proportions", Peterson set off from age-old city Kathmandu, long-hauling across treacherous trail to the Himalayan kingdoms highest peaks, to the remote mountainous village of Langtang, a journey against all others after would be measured.  

Heartbroken to see the recent devastation and disastrous loss of the place that forever changed his life, he offers this emotional tale of his sojourn there, simply as a starting point.  

No stranger to disaster response, Peterson hopes to eventually repeat in Nepal his successful volunteer effort from Japan, the family photo rebuilding project Photohoku

Finally he asks, "How can the tried and true creativity in the greater PechaKucha community rally to share stories and support for Nepal?"

Check out his past presentations about Photohoku:

PechaKucha Inspires Nepal

BY MARK DYTHAM
@ VOL 126 ON JUN 24, 2015

"Anybody who has a story to share about Nepal can make a presentation, record it, send it to us, and we can put it on our PechaKucha Inspire Channel."

At PechaKucha Tokyo's Vol. 126, co-founders Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein re-launched their disaster response initiative, "PechaKucha Inspire", this time for the heavily earthquake-hit Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. 

Building on their experiences with the ongoing PechaKucha Inspire JAPAN effort, where an ever-growing collection of Japan inspiring presentations made at PKN around the world, are being added to, shared, and viewed nearly 100,000 times through the PechaKucha website, PechaKucha Inspire NEPAL will be more nimble, allowing anyone to make a presentation and send it directly to us to upload on the Inspire NEPAL Channel.

PechaKucha's simple and accessible format combined with a tried and tested worldwide network of creativity proves again how we can rally together to truly make a difference in the world. Be inspired by this compelling presentation to share YOUR story and in turn inspire Nepal back to it's beautiful self! 

To share your story, send us a mail at inspire@pechakucha.org.

Thank you!

This was "Presentation of the Day" on July 1st, 2015.

Quilts for Nepal

BY KAREN MCAULAY
ON AUG 05, 2015

"This is not a slow intricate work of art. It's a quick way of making a warm cover for someone who has lost everything and needs the basics of existence."

Unsuspecting librarian by weekday, vigilante heroine seamstress by weekend, Scotswoman Karen McAulay takes the Inspire Nepal stage by sharing her story of a unique volunteer project that aims to provide disaster-struck Nepal with something we can all appreciate, the warmth of a hand-made quilt.

McAulay doesn't wait for her city's next PKN, rather putting her slides and audio together for a PechaKucha Night of one, in her own home in front of her computer. Listen to her presentation and be moved to share YOUR story of Nepal, inspiring the country back to it's vibrant self!

Let's Talk: Getting Real About The 'Isms'

BY KENYONA "SUNNY" MATTHEWS
IN AKRON

We believe that in order to build the bridges and break down walls, we must be willing to tackle all the "isms".  We must be willing to not just acknowledge them, but actively seek to oppose them.  Our approach to conversations about race, class, and gender forcuses on discussion about undoing systems of privilege and oppression.  My presentation would discuss how we help people make real chang and have honest convesation during our workshops!

Inspire Christchurch

Although the focus of our upcoming Global PechaKucha Day - Inspire Japan fundraiser, we have not forgotten our friends in Christchurch, and we are very happy to announce that PKN Christchurch organizer Vanessa Coxhead and her team will be kicking off the whole event. We include here a press release from Vanessa that details the Christchurch event. PKN_CHCH_10 SPECIAL EDITION “Inspire Christchurch” Kick-starting Global PechaKucha Day – Inspire Japan Saturday 16 April 2011 Doors open 7.30pm / start 8.20pm Addington Coffee Co-op 297 Lincoln Road Addington Entry by koha. All funds raised on the night will be distributed to Architecture for Humanity's current rebuilding effort in Christchurch and the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal. Limited capacity. Cash bar only. On 22 February, as Christchurch was preparing to rebuild after the 4 September Canterbury Earthquake, the earth shook and again we have found ourselves in recovery mode, mourning the loss of lives, livelihoods, beloved places and spaces, our much loved heritage and our homes. Then on 11 March, Japan suffered an earthquake and tsunami that destroyed 400km of coastline, killed over 10,000 people, left 400,000 people homeless, and triggered a nuclear situation that is still unfolding. Now both Christchurch and the effected parts of Japan find themselves facing the difficulties and opportunities of rebuilding after significant natural disasters. Please join us on 16 April for PechaKucha Night Christchurch 10 SPECIAL EDITION “Inspire Christchurch” and be a part of Global PechaKucha Day – Inspire Japan. Japan has inspired designers for many generations. It is where PechaKucha Night was born which has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Let's all come together and show Christchurch and 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 the suburbs and towns which have been completely destroyed. With creativity and passion, anything is possible. THINK / PARTICIPATE / DONATE / INSPIRE On 16 April, many of the 400 PechaKucha cities around the world will come together and hold events, broadcasting out to the world over multiple Ustreams. Here in Christchurch we’ll be holding an event at Addington Coffee Co-op and kick-starting the global event via Ustream. The 20x20 presentations will be focused on 3 main themes INSPIRATION, ISSUES, RECOVERY. They could be simply about things that inspire us, or how Christchurch or Japan has inspired you. Great ideas or solutions that help deal with the issues at hand whether earthquake, tsunami or other natural disaster. Or focusing on the road to recovery. On 16 April hundreds of 20x20 presentations will be made around the world and we hope that you’ll be one of them. If you, or someone you know, are interested in presenting please get in touch. You can email me at vanessa@pechakucha.co.nz or contact me on 027 660 6437. Find a city near you and attend or watch on Ustream. Donate at the door or online.

PechaKucha Inspire Nepal Channel

In the wake of the terrible devastation from the earthquake in Nepal, we have decided to set up the PechaKucha Inspire NEPAL initiative. No matter where you are in the world, you can share your stories and experiences of Nepal in the PechaKucha 20x20 format to help inspire the country back to its vibrant and colourful self. PechaKucha Inspire Nepal will also act as a platform to share the good news about reconstruction in the country. Building on our experience with PechaKucha Inspire JAPAN where over 50 presentations — made at PechaKucha Nights around the world — were uploaded to the PechaKucha website and have been viewed nearly 100,000 times, PechaKucha Inspire NEPAL will be more nimble, allowing ANYONE to make a presentation and send it to us for upload to the Inspire NEPAL Channel. If you have a story to share about Nepal for our channel, start by sending us a mail here: inspire@pechakucha.orgHow can you take part? Option 1: Team up with your local PechaKucha Night and present! Simply click here to find if there is a PKN happening soon near you. Option 2: Simply create a PechaKucha Presentation in Keynote or Powerpoint with 20 images that auto advance every 20 seconds. Gather a few friends around a kitchen table or meeting room and record your presentions just like Brian did (see below), right here at PechaKucha HQ. Is there going to be a big global event similar to the one we held for Inspire JAPAN? We have decided that such events take up vast resources especially at PechaKucha HQ. And we want to allow future PechaKucha Inspire projects to be set up quickly. Are we going to be raising money? Other people do this much better than we can - so we are going to focus on inspiring and getting the good news there. BUT if we find people or companies that want to donate to the project they find on PechaKucha Inspire Nepal, we can help facilitate that. Send us a mail at inspire@pechakucha.org. All money will go to hands an organisation on the ground that we have personal contacts with. We have been in touch close with PechaKucha Kathmandu. Our City Organizer there, Sujan and his teams are safe and working on the relief efforts in their community, and will be holding a special PechaKucha Night there July 7th. All those presentations will of course be added to the Inspire NEPAL Channel. Check out the PechaKucha Inspire NEPAL Channel - This is just the beginning, but please help fill it with YOUR amazing stories of and from Nepal and together we can make some beneficial connections, and in turn, Inspire Nepal. Mail us with your story! inspire@pechakucha.org.

INSPIRE CHRISTCHURCH

The PechaKucha Global Community sends out some much deserved love and inspiration to Netta, Erica, and our extended family in Christchurch New Zealand, who at this very moment on Mar 2nd 2016, are hosting there 26th Vol. of PKN! Five years ago this week, Christchurch suffered a massive earthquake that rattled their city but not their spirits. When Japan's massive quake occurred just a few short weeks later, Christchurch despite their own tragedy, were the first to PechaKucha shores with blinding support. A true testament of their community's good will.   Even though 5 year have passed, the road to reconstruction continues, reflected in the many PechaKucha presentations about Christchurch rebuilding. And as a very small, and very late but sincere token of our gratitude to their commitment to Japan in our time of need, we're launching INSPIRE CHRISTCHURCH in an effort to keep the spotlight shining on their city.   Share your story of Christchurch with us, and together let's INSPIRE CHRISTCHURCH to it's vibrant self.

A Night to Inspire

PKN Tokyo aims for a special night. We will be connecting LIVE with our PechaKucha teams from Kumamoto and Ecuador for two presentations. Both cities are struggling in the wake of powerful earthquakes and, technology permitting, each city will present LIVE about the current situation, and what we can do help.
