This year, the UCLA Asian American Studies Center honored traci kato-kiriyama and Tuesday Night Project with the UCLA AASC Nishida Distinguished Lectureship. We were very honored and excited to receive such a recognition that provided for an interactive workshop between TNP staff and UCLA students, a lecture for Professor Victor Bascara's class, and generous honorarium for traci and TNP.

Little Tokyo's Tuesday Night Café outdoor performance series might actually be the best opportunity to behold LA's extremely eclectic talent-base. It has a pretty nice variety of folk, hip-hop, dance, improv, and stand-up. While it's especially involved in promoting artists of Asian and Pacific-Islander descent, everyone is welcome and they show up in droves.
