It’s hard to imagine that the tragic events of the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami were only a year ago. Even though it captivated the world’s attention at the time, people have forgotten that the recovery is an ongoing process.
The people of Japan have shown great resilience and unity during reconstruction, but there is still a long road ahead. International efforts have shifted to the long-term needs of those affected by the disaster, as thousands remain displaced and struggle to reintegrate into society.
During this Saturday’s Wynwood Art Walk, on the anniversary of the disaster, Product/81 will partner with some of the most influential people in Miami’s cultural scene for Rebuilding Japan,a fundraiser benefiting the Japanese Red Cross.
Thirteen local artists will exhibit original posters inspired by the spirit of Japan. The posters, limited edition 8×10 prints and special Yo♥305 sticker will all be sold, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity.
The Purple People Eatery food truck has also created a custom Mini Tuna Wakame Burger and tea just for the occasion. The first 100 people to buy a print and donate to the cause will get a free meal from the best food truck in Miami.
Finally, DJs Ess & Emm will be spinning all night and Pamela Wasabi of Wasabi Fashion Kult will photograph the vibe while patrons enjoy the beer and sake open bar. Come by to support a great cause and have a great time.
