I discovered Tuesday Night Cafe back in 2006 when I was an intern with East West Players, new to the Los Angeles arts and Asian American communities. At the end of my workday, I sometimes walked out to find some folks setting up…something. I could never stay past sound check, but I knew I wanted to check it out. After I finished college, I finally made it out to a TNC; the last one of 2008. They closed out the show by having all the performers of the night circle up for a big jam session. I knew at that moment I really wanted to be part of Tuesday Night Cafe and chased down traci through the winter trying to figure out how I could become involved.
In the four years since, I’ve come to meet an amazing community of artists, organizers, writers, musicians, and performers. Through TNP I’ve gotten connected to different people and organizations, and have gotten to grow myself as an artist, organizer, and individual. Tuesday Night Project is a home, family, and community that I cherish very deeply, and I hope to be able to continue sharing this space with any and all folks who need it. Your support for our fifteenth year and beyond will ensure that, just as I wasn’t the first to be embraced and nurtured by this space, I also won’t be the last.
