Waku Waku +NYC
Aug 29, 2015 @ 10:00 am - Aug 30, 2015 @ 11:00 pm| $45.00
“Waku Waku” is a new Japanese pop culture festival launching this summer in New York City. Waku Waku +NYC brings together the worlds of anime, manga, music, food, film, and fashion inside Brooklyn’s Greenpoint and Williamsburg neighborhoods. Featuring exhibits, panels, screenings, and interactive events across multiple locations, Waku Waku +NYC looks to blend Japanese pop culture with Brooklyn culture. We look to gather a group of creative artists from Japan in order to share their passions with us. It’s Cool Japan meets New York’s Coolest Borough. With a focus on access and engagement, Waku Waku +NYC is built to inspire new audiences, new ideas, and feel “Waku Waku!” (わくわく) = Japanese “excitement in a dream-like state.” We want your dreams, ideas, and passions to come into fruition all in one event!
