About Tuesday Night Project


Tuesday Night Project is a community of artists, organizers, activists, professionals, independent business owners, educators, and community members representing different generations, myriad artistic disciplines, and all walks of life.

For 14 seasons, Tuesday Night Cafe, one of the longest-running free series in Los Angeles, has provided a positive, collaborative space for art and community, with a focus on new work from Asian American/Pacific Islander communities.


Tuesday Night Project’s purpose is to build a positive space for people to connect through the artistic expression of the API and L.A. communities, and to provide time for cultural, social, and political awareness with opportunities for involvement, collaboration, real relationship-building, and action.


Since 1999, Tuesday Night Project has hosted a free space for art and community in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo. On 1st and 3rd Tuesdays from spring through fall, Tuesday Night Cafe provides a positive space for community-building centered on art, performance, passion, and positivity.

Tuesday Night Cafe encourages experimentation, new work from Asian American/Pacific Islander communities, and art from the Greater L.A. area.

While TNP offers modest stipends to some of its technical crew, they have kept the series alive and free to the public with sheer passion and the practice and belief that PEOPLE are each other’s greatest resource.
