Do you miss the art of letter writing? Would you like to have the opportunity to write a letter to the future of Little Tokyo or to a future stakeholder of this community?

Gather with us in a relaxed atmosphere on JANM Plaza each Thursday of August to share tea, conversation, and write letters—with plenty of prompts provided by traci kato-kiriyama, Little Tokyo +LAB Artist-in-Residence.

Artist and tea enthusiast Linda Wei will be helping to serve tea and conversation prompts.

Sound-based ethnographer and artist Umi Hsu will be present for field recordings of the sessions and of those who would like to read aloud some of what they write—on their hopes and dreams for the future of Little Tokyo; the future of how we define “home,” “community” and “solidarity”; and for the future of how we practice what it means to be a “good friend” and a “good neighbor.”

All ages welcome to show up, drink some tea, and write some letters (participants can follow prompts or write on their own).

(Tea and paper/cards/stamps will be provided, free of charge. Feel free to bring a small snack to share!)

+LAB is a bold initiative that allows Little Tokyo Service Center to join forces with artists and cultural institutions to find imaginative ways to empower the Little Tokyo community. A project of the Little Tokyo Service Center, in partnership with the Japanese American National Museum, Visual Communications, Japanese American Community and Cultural Center, and Sustainable Little Tokyo.
