PechaKucha Inspires Nepal

@ 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

Thank you!

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

Local Heroes

Hop hop hop! The Weimar co-op is going on well forward! With the new poster designed by Tereza we took off to catch the attention of potential speakers for the first PKN in Weimar. The response is good: we already gathered 6 confirmations from presenters which gives a nice minimum for a good PechaKucha to take place! This means there are only 6 more places left as we think to limit the evening to 12 presentations. At some special point we will also connect with Tokio during the Global Wave!

Photohoku 2.0

Creating new photo albums for families who lost theirs in natural disasters; this is Photohoku.  Brian Scott Peterson and Yuko Yoshikawa go into depth on Photohoku: a photographic movement founded in response to the giant earthquake that shook Japan in 2011. In "Photohoku 2.0" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 116 we see it's now a movement whereby photographers take photos of families affected by disasters, and give the photo albums back to the families themselves. It has grown into a global photo-giving, fundraising movement and has spread to the US, the Philippines, Australia, Korea, and many more.

PKN Davenport in the News

What's a PechaKucha Night in Davenport like? The Radish offers up a look at a recent event. Melissa Mohr, director of education at the Figge, was one of the people who brought the program to the Thursday-night lineup, and she’s been overwhelmed by the positive community response. “The topics are so varied, and it really highlights the talent we have inside our own community,” she says. One result of the program Mohr is excited about is the evolution of the collaborative creative process. Presenters not only get out of their comfort zone on the presentations, but also interact with the audience and connect with other presenters after the program. Read the full article here.

PechaKucha People: Eddie Selover

Our PKN Organizer in Orlando, the soft-spoken but ever charismatic Eddie Selover deserves the PechaKucha People spotlight after what he said in response to Orlando being called “'home' to the latest record-breaking atrocity." "That’s wrong," he says "Orlando is home to millions of wonderful people, home to a thriving arts community, home to a renaissance of culture and inclusivity. That’s what it was yesterday, and that’s what it will still be tomorrow." Thank you Eddie for all the you do to bring the spirit of PechaKucha to Orlando and for being part of it's inclusive culture of creativity.
