Join us for an evening of cross cultural solidarity, creativity and inspiration.
traci kato-kiriyama, a Los Angeles based, artist, writer and educator, skillfully and intuitively brings folks together in community and solidarity. They are a natural connector and collaborator.
With this nurturing force, and in connection with the collectivist spirit of the exhibition, traci convenes some of her dearest and most creative collaborators across Los Angeles for an evening of storytelling, poetry and conversation on the nature of community, activism and connection. Join us to hear from and experience the work of traci kato-kiriyama, Fe Montes, Sequoia Olivia Mercier, and Johneric Concordia.
The exhibition, Voice a Wild Dream, borrows its title from traci's poem “Letters to Taz - on meeting (after Taz Ahmed’s ‘If Our Grandparents Could Meet’),” included in her recent publication Navigating With(out) Instruments. In the poem, Traci imagines a shared moment between the two poet activists’ grandparents and the solidarity that they might share in their hope for the future.
