Join us on Friday September 5th from 7pm-9:30pm (open 6:30pm) at the Embassy of Serbia for the charity event for BALKAN FLOOD RELIEF!! It’s not a simple charity event but full of events which will offer practical knowledge and richness to your life. Entrance fee is for FREE but participants are required to purchase at least one Raffle ticket ￥1,000/each at the door.
Complimentary snack and soft drinks will be served.
※Alcoholic beverages (Beers, Wine etc.) for extra charge.
Serbia has just been struck (May 2014) with a huge natural disaster, caused by heavy rain and overflowing rivers (Details: http://www.tokyo.mfa.gov.rs/index.php). While this serious disaster in Balkan Peninsula has barely made the news in Japan, The International Center inTokyo (ICT) and My Eyes Tokyo (MET) decided to cosponsor this charity event for Serbia because it’s time for us to repay one of our greatest supporter who has donated more to the relief efforts for “The 2011 off the Pacific coast of Tohoku Earthquake and tsunami” than any other European country for the first half year!!!
So we'd like to say thank you to Serbia through this charity event, which must be a good opportunity to learn its cultures, heritages, people and so on…

1. Workshop: “Summer Drink Workshop – with Serbian and Japanese Ingredients”
ICT will hold a Summer Drink Workshop where you can learn how to make a refreshing drink with the great harmonization of Japanese and Serbian culture by blending Japanese tea and Serbian fruit jams, which goes well with Serbian food. ICT will also sell its original tea blends which were chosen as the best blends in ICT’s past three workshops by the participants from all over the world !!! The profit of the sale will also go to the charity.
ICT is an open English/Japanese-speaking community to get to know more Japan throughout our wide-ranging activities (held 60 classes, 16 workshops in total).
2. Flower arrangement performance with the sound of BASS and buddhist priest's chant
Sosen Imai, a contemporary flower artist, will show you the 21st century style Ikebana. He uses scissors like a totally different thing. The fusion of ikebana, groovy bass sound and chant - What's going to happen? You will see!
