The Reflection

Y+L Invites aims to connect people from different fields through inspiring stories. Mia Mia’s founding father Vaughan was kind enough to accept our invitation and shared his story with a selected crowd (due to the limited space in our venue).

The reason for Y+L Invites

One of the key missions since starting Y+L Projects has been to work as a bridge between Japanese and international communities and cultures, and while Y+L has been doing that in the business sense, we wanted to take a more inclusive, creativity-focused, and community-oriented approach to achieving this mission. The creation of Y+L Invites feels like the next natural step.

The first event

Australian-born, long-term Tokyo resident Vaughan will helm the first edition. A passionate music promoter, writer, presenter, coffee personality, and the co-founder of cafe Mia Mia and gallery space I Am Tokyo, Vaughan is a natural community builder and felt like the most natural fit for this inaugural event. He’ll share his experience connecting people and culture through the power of coffee in an evening filled with stories about building supportive and loving networks.

The details

We’re keeping the nights small and cozy with an exclusive 15–20 people guest list; it’s totally free, everything will be bilingual (English + Japanese), and interested guests can sign up via the Google Form.
