ART4FSN: What Can Us Artists Do?


This conversation will be hosted via Zoom. Click here to RSVP.

Little Tokyo community stakeholders are already concerned about community self-determination in the face of new redevelopment and displacement, and now there is a Presidential election that could have long-reaching consequences not only for Little Tokyo but for other local communities as well.

What is the place of the arts and art-making in these extraordinary times? What are our community artists and arts advocates doing NOW to use their talents to engage their constituents and raise awareness of important issues that will impact their communities? Join us in a lively conversation as we count down to Election 2020, and strategize to take on the challenging times still ahead.
