we'd rather be in lagos: the U.M.i-1 exhibition

[click to enlarge]

about the brand:

"The U.Mi-1 brand embodies the similarities between two cultures; Japanese and Nigerian, and is her homage to the country she believes is akin to her home Nigeria...through U.Mi-1, Gozi aims to bridge the gap between the two nations. Live! U.Mi-1, the philanthropic arm of the brand is an exchange program aimed at bringing cultural awareness to orphaned kids in Nigeria and Japan through artistic workshops. Encouraging dialogue through art and giving the children a stimulating experience is at the heart of this project. In collaboration with an invited artist, Gozi educates the children in Japan about Nigeria and vise versa." [source]
