Tuesday Night Project presents:
The 1st & 3rd Tuesday Night Cafe
21st Season Opener
Tuesday Night Cafe is back for the second show of our 21st year! As a space made of artists, organizers, and the people who make up our communities, we're in a constant grind to do work in these critical times. Join us as we think about the ways we survive and the ways we practice self care!
Now the longest currently running Asian American mic series in the country and one of the longest running free public art series in Los Angeles, Tuesday Night Cafe highlights new work in visual and performing arts from the Los Angeles and Asian American artistic community in Little Tokyo.
