Selected time

6:00 PM  –  7:30 PM

Discussions around mental health continue to be stigmatized within the broader Asian and Pacific Islander community. These conversations are complicated by linguistic barriers, the lack of culturally specific resources, and other racialized societal pressures. Despite the circumstances, there are many who are finding creative ways to address these gaps and inequities.

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and Mental Health Awareness Month, hear from innovative artists and creatives who are speaking out about mental health within the API community through music, poetry, art, food, and film in a celebration of our community’s strength and resiliency. Our community partner, Changing Tides, a program of the Little Tokyo Service Center, will also talk about their work to address this stigma within the Japanese American community and provide resources for those who need them.

Featuring the team from the upcoming documentary Things I Never Said; singer-songwriter Priska; organizer and poet Audrey Kuo; dancer and transformational coach Charlotte Nguyen; and Qasida reciter and musician Asiyah Amatullah Ayubbi.
