On February 11, 2021 we will be unveiling a mural and artworks created by Japanese artist Kaoru Shibuta, followed by a live interview between he and our director John Teply.
And we have a very exciting schedule of events shaping up for that night to celebrate Japanese cultural heritage!
We will kick it off with a virtual cooking class led by local Chef David Edwards of NanBan PDX, who takes a "renegade approach" to Japanese comfort food. https://www.nanbanpdx.com/
We will also get to enjoy some fantastic traditional Japanese folktale storytelling by Alton Chung, as well as an exciting musical performance by Yumi Torimaru of Kotori Japanese Music.
Tickets are on sale now — only $15 for this single event or $50 for your all-inclusive "passport"

We are very excited to be working with Afghan Cultural House for our event celebrating our exchange with Arif Bahaduri, an Afghan artist working in Canada.
Afghanistan Youth Cultural & Arts Organization (AYCAO) is a non - profit government organization that established in 2010 in Kabul as a dynamic cultural center offering different services. It provides a unique opportunity for the Afghan people, especially for the women and young generations who are ignored or isolated from the community for many decades.
