ONLINE tea and letter writing: to our elders

  • en
Class/Workshop

Apr 202015
6:00p.m. - 8:00p.m.


Connect with others during this time of “social isolation” and write a letter to an elder in your life. Gather with us in the comfort of your own home to share tea and conversation and write letters—with plenty of prompts provided by traci kato-kiriyama, former Little Tokyo +LAB Artist-in-Residence at JANM.

Seniors are highly vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus and so many find themselves isolated in this time. During this tea & letter writing session, you will have a chance to write to an important elder in your life or write a letter to send to an elder currently staying safely at home in a senior living community in Little Tokyo. We will read aloud some letters on the theme from JANM’s permanent collection before diving into our own writing.

Make yourself a warm cup of tea, get cozy, and join us online! All ages are welcome to participate.

This program is FREE, but please RSVP using the link below. You will be emailed instructions for how to join our conversation on Zoom.

This program was launched through the +LAB Artist Residency program presented by the Little Tokyo Service Center in partnership with JANM and continues now in partnership with Tuesday Night Project’s TNTalks initiative.
