Nikkei Community Internship's 10th Anniversary!


Tuesday Night Cafe

Every year, Southern California NCI interns attend one Tuesday Night Cafe to learn about this artistic community effort and the impact that it's had.  They always put on such a great show with live singers, musicians, and comedians and also have community artwork on display.  You can always count on good people and good vibes.

"On the face of it, Tuesday Night Project (TNP) hosts a free open mic event called the 1st & 3rd Tuesday Night Cafe in Little Tokyo, Spring through Fall – but since 1999 the people behind the project and the series have grown into an actual community fiercely devoted to creating venues where art and community connect. It is a community of artists, organizers, activists, professionals, independent business owners, educators and community members of different generations, a myriad of artistic disciplines and all walks of life."

Its purpose is "to build space for people to connect through the artistic expression of the API and L.A. communities and to provide time for cultural, social, and political awareness with opportunities for involvement, collaboration, real relationship-building and action."
