Global PechaKucha Day
This event has ended.
Due to the tragic events Haiti on January 12th, architects and co-founders of SuperDeluxe and founders of PechaKucha Night, Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham have come together with Cameron Sinclair from Architecture for Humanity to organize a Global PechaKucha Day on the 20th February. As SuperDeluxe is the birthplace of PechaKucha we have decided to kick off the global event there.
On February 20th, the 280 cities that host PechaKucha events worldwide will converge to present one continuous 24-hour edition of PechaKucha Night with 20 images x 20 seconds, 200 cities, 2,000 presentations, and 200,000 people will try and raise $1,000,000. Kicking off at SuperDeluxe in Tokyo, where PechaKucha Night was first conceived 7 years ago, the presentation WAVE will travel westward, with cities presenting one after the other. Crossing all times zones and cultures, the event will be streamed live via a WAVEcast online and will finish in San Francisco and 20 hours later. We will celebrate with a live simultaneous link up Tokyo 2pm the following day - Sunday 21st.
