ONLINE Tea and Letter Writing: Building Connections

  • en

May 20206
6:00p.m. - 7:45p.m.

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.

As we continue to physically distance, we are reminded of the most vulnerable populations among us, especially our community seniors who have been safer at home, but isolated, for some time now and those who are currently incarcerated in unsafe, crowded conditions. During this tea & letter writing session, we will be taking time to reach out to these communities and offer our support and solidarity. Participants will have the chance to send their letters to seniors in Little Tokyo senior living facilities and/or migrants detained at the Adelanto Detention Center. 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 a few days before the program with instructions for how to join our conversation on Zoom. Please contact if you have any additional questions.


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.
