PechaKucha on the Road: Inspire Japan

Free entrance. With the Big PechaKucha Lottery for Japan!

27 Apr 2011

On Wednesday 27 April we are organizing a special PechaKucha Night Amsterdam devoted to supporting Japan. This 'on the road' edition will be hosted at the Smart Urban Stage, a pop-up theater traveling through Europe. We have selected a bunch of great presenters who can hardly wait to share their work, ideas and inspiration with you in 20 slides of 20 seconds. Entrance is free!

In order to support the victims of the earthquake in Japan, this edition will be part of the international PechaKucha Inspire Japan initiative. We will be raising money with a special PechaKucha lottery during this evening. Participants can win great design and art prizes donated by former PechaKucha presenters, companies and other creatives!

As a happy crossbreed between an elevator pitch and speed dating, PechaKucha Night will present eight brilliant people who will be sharing their work and ideas in 20 slides of 20 seconds. Breaks will be filled with drinks, funky tunes and visuals by our lovely Merel Das aka Blackbird Badger. We will astound you with fabulously inspiring presenters, great lottery prizes, good music to dance to and so many interesting people in one space at one time, you'll wish you had more time to speak to all of them!
