YUUJOU – Here to Make Friends!


An evening for people who believe in friendship–and want to travel for free!

The international project YUUJOU is coming to New York and tells you why and how to go on a 100-day-journey around the world!

YUUJOU wants to prove that we are all connected, not only virtually, but also in real life! The media-art project enables 6 people to travel around the globe to create a circle of friendship along the way. The participants can go on this journey for free! The project from Switzerland is strongly focusing on friendship because researches from Julianne Holt-Lunstad found out: it is the key to a happy and healthy life!

On December 6 at The Invisible Dog, New Yorkers will have the unique opportunity to meet the YUUJOU team in person and apply on-site (casting video recorded by professionals) for the free 100-day adventure. The evening will include a talk by Julianne Holt-Lunstad, the world's leading expert on friendship, connection, and loneliness, as well as Brooklyn-based artists Chris Klapper and Patrick Gallagher whose project Dataatadata: Everything and Nothing is currently on show at The Invisible Dog.

Enjoy Swiss wine, fine food, and good company!

Supported by Consulate General of Switzerland in New York
