On Saturday, May 7th, aricoco will be asking for your donation during her performance for A.I.O.P. at Festival for Ideas for the New City. All the money she collects will be donated to people in Iwaki City, Fukushima, Japan, where the recent Tohoku earthquake/tsunami hit and caused nuclear plant blasts.

aricoco’s performance will be on from 11am to 3pm, near New Museum and its surrounding area. A.I.O.P.’s tent will be on Rivington Street at the corner of  Chrystie Street in Sarah D. Roosevelt Park.
