Our PK_special edition is cancelled but will be re-scheduled in some way. Here the info from the Silo Cinema organisers which we have to accept.

“It is with great reluctance that we are cancelling tomorrows Silo Cinema in collaboration with Pecha Kucha and Night Market.
The forecast tomorrow if for winds with gusts exceeding 90 kmh and due to the health and safety risks associated with this we can not proceed.
We are committed to re-scheduling the programming and the night with Pecha Kucha as it will be most certainly one of the highlights of the season.”

Stay nice and warm, we will keep you updated!

50% of the world’s population lives in urban areas. By 2050 this will increase to 80%. Life in a mega city is both enchanting and problematic; today we face issues surrounding peak oil, climate change, loneliness and severe health concerns due to our way of life. Danish Architect and professor Jan Gehl tries to explain why, combining his understanding of urban design and a 40-year study of human behaviour in cities. He documents how modern cities repel human interaction, and argues that we can build cities in a way which takes human needs for inclusion and intimacy into account.

Before the screening, a special mini-edition of Pecha Kucha Night Auckland will take over the Silo Cinema screen with a fast-paced, energetic session of engaging speakers.
