J-COLLABO Presents
Geisha performance in Manhattan and Brooklyn
By Geisha Kikuno

J-COLLABO, the New York based venue for Japanese art and culture is pleased to announce a very special event. Famed Nara Geisha Kikuno is coming to NYC to demonstrate this ancient artform. The first performance will take place on September 6 at Globus Washitsu, but the maximum capacity is 50 guests by invitation only. Please contact us if you are interested in the VIP event. The second performance will take place at J-LABO in Brooklyn on September 7 collaborating with multimedia director Kenji Williams.

Geisha history spans over 300 years. Their beauty and grace is legendary as is their exceptional skill in music, dance and entertainment. In spite of a near worldwide fascination, the number of Geisha is decreasing year by year. Geisha Kikuno is a unique Geisha from Osaka.

    Gallery 151 presents the photojournalism of Filmmaker and Global Brigades Creative Manager, Luke Namer. During his time working in Ghana, Honduras and Panama, Namer was exposed to the powerful communal spirit of rural inhabitants in each respective country. With the support of Gallery 151, Namer showcases a selection ofphotographs from his journey that highlight the diversity and richness of each unique community.
    Gallery 151 invites viewers to take part in the Global Brigades mission, to initiate a discourse,  and finally, to raise awareness about the non-profit’s role in supporting these international communities.
    Global Brigades is the world’s largest student-led global health and sustainable development organization. Since 2004, Global Brigades has mobilized tens of thousands of university students and professionals through skill-based programs that work in partnership with community members to improve quality of life in under resourced regions while respecting local culture. With over 10,000 volunteers a year engaging poverty inequity on over 300 university campuses in Europe and North America, students have helped Global Brigades reinvent international community service. Last year alone, Global Brigades empowered local doctors to conduct approximately 106,069 patient consultations throughout mobile medical clinics in rural areas. Most importantly, each Global Brigades student has helped to set the standard for health and economic development work, defining collaborations with the partner communities, and ensuring the sustainability of each international project.  
    This exhibition seeks to answer a single question: How does this rapidly growing movement to end poverty inequity reach beyond active college campuses?
    With the support of Gallery 151, Global Brigades is working to raise awareness and engagement for professionals working in New York City. This pop-up exhibition, Global Campus, will educate and fuel a discourse based on the issues of potable water availability, reforestation efforts in the Darien gap, and the need for international support for medical infrastructure in West Africa and Central America.
