Little Tokyo Artist Convening 2019

Saturday, June 15, 2019

Please join us for our annual Little Tokyo Artist Convening! Open to all artists/arts allies and instigators who care about Little Tokyo!

Art and artist have always been an integral part of the growth of Little Tokyo—from Nisei Week Festival to JACCC to Tuesday Night Cafe. We invite artists of all disciplines to be part of the continued fight to sustain the history, culture, and community of our historic Japantown.
