“Cultural Sustainability from the Inside Out: An Arts Roundtable” will be presented on Thursday, Feb. 21, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, 244 S. San Pedro St. in Little Tokyo.
How do artists find balance between growing and sustaining the work within their communities of practice with the desire to share and “teach” a wider public? Join a dynamic conversation on cultural sustainability with Los Angeles-based artists and cultural leaders, including Lucumí priest and folklorist Ysamur M. Flores-Peña; performer Nobuko Miyamoto of Great Leap, Inc.; president of the Garifuna American Heritage Foundation United, Inc., Cheryl Noralez; and House and Ball practitioner Sean Milan of Reach LA.
This event is part of 2018-2019 TARS (Traditional Arts Roundtable Series) season “Ritual + Improvisation in Los Angeles.” RSVP to [email protected]
