Support Japan’s tsunami victims, come out to PKN Charlotte v.8!

Posted on 22 Apr 2011 by Desiree Kane

We love Pecha Kucha Night — Charlotte (#pknclt) and many of our staff volunteer for the event. The winner of Charlotte Magazine’s 2010 Best of the Best (BoB) Award for Cultural Events, has announced the eighth installment of the series on April 28, at Amos’ Southend as part of Southend Soul!

What: Pecha Kucha Night Charlotte – Vol. 8
When: Thursday, April 28, at 7:30 PM Doors open at 7:00.
Where: Amos’ Southend (1423 S Tryon St., 28203)
Cover: $5 at the door. Cash bar for 21+

Charlotte is loaded with wonderful creative catalysts and this is but a tiny cross-section. The presentations of PK Volume 8 will cover a broad range of topics from Photography and Poetry to Biking and Racial Identity. The presenters in alphabetical order:

Ana Lucia Divins & Edwin Gil
Tomás Jiménez-Eliæson
Spencer Lueders
Indrani Nayar-Gall, Timothy Vang, and introducing: Charlie Black
Franco Ordonez
Carlos Salum
Martin Settle
Charles Thomas
Dwayne Waite Jr.
Osama Wazan

100% the door proceeds from PKN Volume 8 will go to the post earthquake-tsunami rebuilding efforts in Japan. The organization leading this effort is “Inspire Japan” – a global initiative led by the Pecha Kucha HQ in Tokyo along with Architecture for Humanity. 120+ cities from around the world are participating so not only is this contributing to helping fellow humans, it’s an opportunity to share this effort with other like-minded people around the world. Since PKN is volunteer driven – at the local as well as global level – there is no overhead or administrative costs, 100% of what is collected will go to the rebuilding work.

RSVP (by clicking this link) is appreciated but not required. Come as you are, all are always welcome!
